What is comptia
What is CompTIA?

  • An organization dedicated to representing the information technology (IT) community


Agnostic testing and certifications
“Agnostic” Testing and Certifications

  • CompTIA is “agnostic” or vendor-neutral:

    • In its representation of the information technology community

    • In its development of exams and certifications

  • CompTIA offers a variety of other vendor-neutral tests such as Security+, Network+, etc.

Comptia and the project management institute
CompTIA and the Project Management Institute

  • CompTIA maintains a working relationship with PMI

  • The Project+ exam objectives closely map to the Project Management Professional (PMP) exam objectives

  • The PMP exam and certification is much more extensive

  • The Project+ exam and certification are a great starting point for beginning Project Management (PM) professionals

Why the name change
Why the Name Change?

  • CompTIA determined that the IT Project+ exam objectives were generic enough that the “IT” title didn’t fit

  • The exam (and our book) was renamed to “Project+” in October of 2004

  • The exam objectives and material remain the same

Do i need to be in it to take the project exam
Do I need to be in IT to take the Project+ Exam?

  • Absolutely not! Project Managers (PMs) work in a variety of disciplines (manufacturing, aerospace, etc.)

  • However, IT is almost always a part of any given project!
