I have passed my CompTIA CySA+ certification on the first time in September after I won a voucher here at ITProTV by watching a webinar. Thank you ITProTV!
Now, I am wondering how I will keep my certification, since it expires after 3 years.
To keep the certification, you must earn 60 CEUs within 3 years before the expiration. For example, you can complete a training course and earn 1 credit for each hour of the course. For an IT course to qualify, you must submit:
Detailed description/outline of the training content
Completion certificate containing the following:
Name of the course
Name of the training provider
Date the course was completed
Number of hours
And the course content must be at least 50 % be related to one or more of the exam objectives for the certification you are renewing.
So, my questions to ITPro.tv are:
- Do you know whether we can earn credits by completing courses on your website?
- If yes, I think your certificates of completions do not have all the details that CompTIA is asking for. There should also be on your certificates the number of hours completed. Do you think you can add that?
- If not, it would be great if you could become a pre-approved trainer of CompTIA. Right now, you aren't on this list. It means that we'd have yet to pay another training/certification provider just to renew our CompTIA certification. For those of us who don't want to invest too much money, being able to renew our CompTIA certifications with ITPro.tv would be a great option.
- Also, I see that it is possible to get Continuing Education Units by attending live webinars. Since you're offering a lot of webinars, it would also be nice to earn CEUs by watching your webinars.
- Another suggestion, it would be cool to have a place somewhere in your library which categorizes all the courses that are at least 50% related to CompTIA objectives for examples.
Keep on doing the good work here! These are just suggestions, and I think it could add value for us trainees but as well for you :-) I hope it gives you some ideas.
P.S. I didn't even have CompTIA A+, Network+, or Security+ yet, and still I passed the exam after watching all the videos at ITProTV, and doing almost all of the flashcards and exam simulations on Kaplan. The exam is tough, but if you practice a lot before and take your time to answer and think when you take the exam, you can do it!
