Certification Reimbursement

CompTIA Logo

IT Certifications allow CIS students to demonstrate their knowledge, skills, and competency to potential IT employers.  Obtaining professional IT certifications help students stand out from the crowd and become more marketable in their professional job search.  Therefore, many CIS courses are designed to help students acquire industry recognized IT certifications such as the CompTIA A+ ™, CompTIA Network+ ™, CompTIA Security+ ™, and CompTIA Linux+ ™.

The CIS Department is committed to student success.  As a result, the CIS Department will reimburse current students who successfully pass CompTIA certification exams.
