Who is CompTIA?

We are inclusive
CompTIA believes every individual – regardless of their age, race, gender identity or sexual orientation deserves an equal chance for success and happiness.
We are results-focused
As an organization, CompTIA has a bias for action and results, all in the pursuit of our goals.  We constantly seek to stretch our own belief of what we are capable of accomplishing.
We are driven
At CompTIA, we believe great advances come from taking meaningful action through incremental bite-sized steps.
We are humble
With a higher volume of innovation, of course, comes greater risk.  We are humble enough to accept we can’t possibly know everything, nor can we say with complete certainty what the future might hold.
We are savvy
We believe in the intelligence, creativity, passion and purpose of the people who make up our global team, whose savvy keeps our engines running and gives us the credibility required to earn the repeat business of our partners, members and end users.
