Course Details

The CompTIA Security+ Certification Course is ideally suited to IT professionals aiming to build a strong foundation in cybersecurity practices. This includes network administrators, security consultants, security engineers, and IT auditors.

It's also an invaluable asset for anyone aspiring to launch their IT security career. The course serves as a stepping stone to advanced-level cybersecurity certifications, making it a smart choice for ambitious professionals.

If you are just beginning your journey in the IT sector and lack prior experience, we highly recommend you consider completing the CompTIA A+ and CompTIA Network+ certifications before embarking on the CompTIA Security+ course. The CompTIA A+ certification will equip you with a fundamental understanding of computer systems and hardware, while CompTIA Network+ provides a solid foundation in networking concepts. Both certifications serve as valuable prerequisites, ensuring you have the knowledge base necessary to fully benefit from and engage with the advanced content covered in the CompTIA Security+ course.

Regardless of your experience level in the IT realm, if you have a keen interest in understanding and mitigating digital security threats, this course offers the knowledge and skills you'll need.

 Holding a CompTIA Security+ certification opens up a wide range of career opportunities within IT security.

Here's an overview of potential job roles and their corresponding salary ranges, as cited by ITJobsWatch and Payscale, both trusted UK-based salary benchmarking services.

Entry-Level Roles:

  • IT Support Technician: This is often a stepping stone into the IT industry, providing foundational knowledge that can be applied in more specialised roles. The UK average salary ranges from £22,000 to £28,000.

  • Network Administrator: The role involves managing and maintaining an organisation's computer networks. With CompTIA Security+ under your belt enabling you to validate baseline security skills, you can expect an average UK salary between £25,000 and £35,000.

Mid-Level Roles:
