CompTia Certification at Elevate 2016

Below is the outlined proposed plan which has solidified a price point that will allow your franchise to send techs in for a complete CompTia Security+ certification. We’ve also outlined the Off-The-Street pricing so you can easily compare and know that we’ve worked hard to ensure you have the best option for Security+ certification.

Even if your techs cannot attend the full Elevate event, we’ve arranged the training to occur on Monday, May 2nd and the exam testing onsite for Tuesday, May 3rd. For those techs that can only attend the training on Monday, we will also have exam vouchers available after training that they can use to take the exams when they return to their home city. If your tech is attending this training/certification they will need to register as an Elevate attendee to be able to attend any of the events or meals.

Should you have any further questions regarding the training, proposed plan, or costs please email Ian Dodds at
