We’re excited to announce that LeaderQuest won a CompTIA Rising Star Award at the 2017 CompTIA Partner Summit. The Rising Star Award recognizes our dedication to training students with relevant technology skills for today’s marketplace. We’re proud to help students prepare for lucrative careers in information technology. This is especially true for cyber security where qualified workers are in high demand.
Cyber crime is on the rise all over the world, but professionals who can stop it are in short supply. Damage from such activity is projected to rise to $6 trillion by 2021, according to Cybersecurity Ventures. In the U.S. over 40,000 jobs for information security analysts are going unfilled every year, and employers are struggling to fill 200,000 other cyber security related roles. As a result, these roles command a considerable salary.
We’ve increased our focus on cyber security certifications to meet the incredible demand for these workers. As costs from cyber crime rise every year, more companies are making information and network security a top priority. The U.S. government has similar priorities, and requires a number of different certifications for DoD 8570 compliance. By targeting emerging markets for IT workers, we aim to keep the best interests of our students at heart. Whether our students are just getting started with CompTIA Security+ training or working up to their CASP, LeaderQuest is proud to help them take the next step in their career.
“At a time when many employers struggle to fill job openings for IT workers, partners such as LeaderQuest have staked out a leadership position in preparing the next generation of technology professionals through classroom instruction, hands-on training, informative courseware and professional certifications,” said Joe Padin, vice president, public and private sector business development for CompTIA, “We’re pleased to recognize LeaderQuest with a Rising Star Award, signifying their standing in the CompTIA community of partners.”
We couldn’t be more proud to be the recipients of this prestigious award! This accolade is the result of the hard work of all of our employees, with whose help we can offer world-class CompTIA training. Our CompTIA certifications are a very popular way to get into the IT industry, and we couldn’t have done this without their partnership.
