CompTIA is one of the world’s best-known certification bodies in Information Technology. Founded in 1982, CompTIA (The Computer Technology Industry Association) was one of the first certification bodies. Its vendor-neutral approach helps CompTIA to focus on what skills a technology worker needs, as opposed to what a vendor might want to advertise. Recognized in over 120 countries CompTIA has issued over 2 million IT certifications.
According to the 2020 Dice Salary Survey, the average help desk support worker makes 50,009 USD.
