The CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP+) certification designates IT professionals with advanced-level security skills and knowledge.

If you understand how to develop and implement secure solutions across enterprise environments, this certification allows you to document and prove your mastery of information security to employers.

CASP+ is also one of the Department of Defense-approved baseline certifications for DoD 8570. CASP+ certification gives individuals the necessary qualifications for higher-level positions, meeting the requirements for jobs in Information Assurance Technical Level III, IS Manager Level II and IA Systems Architect and Engineer Levels I and II.

What You Will Learn

Upon successful completion of this program, participants will be prepared to take the CASP+ certification exam.

Note: CompTIA is releasing a new version of the CASP+ exam (CAS-004) in August 2021. The November 2021 class will prepare you for the new CAS-004 exam.

Who Should Take CASP+?

This certification is intended for experienced IT security practitioners.

While not required, CompTIA recommends that CASP+ candidates have the following experience: a minimum of 10 years of hands-on IT experience, with at least five years of hands-on IT security experience.

Although not a prerequisite, CASP+ candidates often have CompTIA Security+ certification.
