CompTIA Security+ is a global certification that validates the baseline skills you need to perform core security functions and pursue an IT security career.

Security+ Certification Boot Camp

Our 3-day CompTIA Security+ Certification Boot Camp course is geared towards preparing students to pass the 90 minute CompTIA SY0-501 examination. Our program represents the culmination of hundreds of hours of instructional design, thousands of hours of exam-focused instruction, and tens of thousands of efficiently and effectively skilled, certified students.

CompTIA Security+ is the first security certification IT professionals should earn.

The certification emphasizes the practical and hands-on ability to both identify and address security threats, attacks, and vulnerabilities.

Although the exam objectives document is longer, the new exam actually has fewer objectives. CompTIA Security+ (SY0-601) has 35 exam objectives, compared to 37 on SY0-501. The difference is that the exam objectives for SY0-601 include more examples under each objective – the number of examples increased by about 25%.

CompTIA Security+ 601 focuses on the most up-to-date and current skills needed for the following tasks:

- Assess the cybersecurity posture of an enterprise environment - Recommend and implement appropriate cybersecurity solutions - Monitor and secure hybrid environments - Operate with an awareness of applicable laws and policies - Identify, analyze and respond to cybersecurity events and incidents

This was intentional to help you better understand the meaning of each exam objective. The more examples and details we provide, the more helpful the exam objectives are for IT pros to prepare for their certification exam and, ultimately, the job itself.

But remember, exam objectives are not exhaustive: you may encounter other examples of technologies, processes or tasks on the exam. The exam questions are not based on these bulleted examples, but on the overarching exam objectives themselves. CompTIA is constantly reviewing exam content and updating questions to ensure relevance and exam integrity.

CompTIA Security+ is the first security certification IT professionals should earn. It establishes the core knowledge required of any cybersecurity role and provides a springboard to intermediate-level cybersecurity jobs. As you may know, Security+ is compliant with ISO 17024 standards and approved by the US DoD to meet directive 8140/8570.01-M requirements.

Although CompTIA does not impose any prerequisites, we recommend that candidates obtain the Network+ credential or have at least one year of IT administration experience with a security focus.

You can participate in a number of activities and training programs, including higher certifications, to renew your CompTIA Security+ certification. Training Camp offers a wide range of services to help collect the required 50 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) in the three year window.

While our Training Camp boot camps were developed with the expectation that students do not have enough time to complete a rigorous self-study syllabus prior to attending class, we offer students that feel that extra preparation would be helpful a targeted list of self-study objectives that can be completed.

Testimonials

The Sec+ class did a superb job preparing me for the exam, ensuring I had everything I needed to succeed on the test.
Paul P
With limited previous experience, and little to no IT experience, I was able to come in and complete the bootcamp with a passing score and a security+ certification.
ELIZA J
The Sec+ Boot Camp delivers exactly what a student needs to earn a passing score on the exam.
Curtis Guerrero San Diego
Almost no experience in IT besides a little self learning prior to the class. Eric taught every material to the T for the SEC+ Exam. I had an enjoyable time learning from him and possibly looking forward on taking more classes with him if I can.
Charley Farmer
Although the course material is tough and sometimes seems daunting, the instructors are effective in getting through it.
Daniel Y
I believe self-study would have been much much harder to comprehend the information and pass the test on a first try. My colleagues who self-studied flunked the first time they took it. I passed the first time after attending the boot camp.
TS Comcast
As a veteran Training Camp offered me the opportunity to enhance my learning and change my field of work into a rapidly growing market. Definitely worth it!
Brandon McCartney
CISSP instructor Ross Everett-knowledgeable, thorough and very easily understood. The location of class room was great in the metro D.C. Area. Hotel package was a fantastic deal. Going to return for cloud certs in no time.
Jia Hedman Leidos
I strongly encourage any individual to top their individual studying with the well informed and experienced personnel of Training Camp. They helped me maximize my learning experience!
Clifton Russ Burke
I personally love the experience. For me, this is the best way for me to get away and actually do nothing but study and work. This is why I choose to come here over self study. No distraction.
