Training partners help us develop the vigorous and well-respected technical skills curriculum that we teach to our students. Currently, The Stride Center offers certification through CompTIA, a leading provider of an internationally accredited IT curriculum and an industry standard trade association. As the IT industry continues to grow, CompTIA certifications serve as proof to hiring managers that candidates have solid real-world technical skills.
In a head-to-head competition for an entry-level IT position, how would Stride graduate fare against a graduate armed with a four-year degree?
Very well, as it turns out. Research done by The Stride Center indicates that there is no significant difference in hiring rates for entry-level IT positions between our IT Certified job candidates with a High School Diploma and those with a 4-year degree. CompTIA has also seen statistical evidence that indicates IT certifications provide a high degree of credibility when it comes to entry-level IT positions.
