The CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP+) course provides a 5-day, interactive, classroom-based review of topics and exam preparation. The CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner certification is an international, vendor-neutral exam that proves competency in risk management; enterprise security operations and architecture; research and collaboration; and integration of enterprise security. The course reviews all areas of the exam and covers the technical knowledge and skills required to conceptualize, design, and engineer secure solutions across complex enterprise environments. In addition, the application and testing process as well as key topics on the exam are covered.
CASP+ is compliant with ISO 17024 standards and approved by the US DoD to meet directive 8140/8570.01-M requirements. Regulators and government rely on ANSI accreditation because it provides confidence and trust in the outputs of an accredited program. Over 1.3 million CompTIA ISO/ANSI-accredited exams have been delivered since January 1, 2011.
The new CompTIA CASP+ CAS-003 exam is available as of April 2, 2018.
