LSUS Continuing Education is offering CompTIA ITF+ and CompTIA Sec+ certifications to meet the growing demand for IT jobs. Unlike traditional online courses, the CompTIA certification courses will feature the ability for students to schedule time with Knowledge Navigators who will provide support and guidance.  

“We live in an ever-increasing digital world where certifications are growing in prevalence to show specific skill attainment,” said Dr. Julie Lessiter, Ed.D., Vice Chancellor of Strategic Initiatives for LSU Shreveport. “It is important for LSUS, an institution of higher education that prepares students to be successful in career and life in the Digital Economy, to be able to offer such types of certifications to people in this region to enable them to be competitive and productive members of the workforce.”

CompTIA offers industry-standard training, certification, and continuing education products to improve students’ skillset and help them achieve their goals. Scott Isaacs, Director of the LSUS Cyber Collaboratory, has used multiple CompTIA training and certifications throughout his career.
