Computing Academies


CompTIA Academy

WVUP is partnered with CompTIA, a globally known IT certification industry. Certifications can assist with obtaining more knowledge in a specific field, along with giving you a competitive edge on your resume. Since CompTIA is globally known, many IT jobs will require you to obtain a certification, with some basic ones being the Network + or ComptiA A+.

Each test will cost a few hundred dollars, but as a CompTIA Academy you will gain access to discounted vouchers. So get testing and check out the link below for more information!

Cisco Academy

As a Cisco Academy, students will be taught much of what Cisco has to offer. You will be working with Cisco routers and switches, along with being taught some of the basic protocols specific to Cisco. You can expect to take classes that will prepare you for the CCNA/CCNP, which are some really advanced networking certifications. While there is plenty of competing networking equipment on the market, if you are able to pass a Cisco class, you will more than be prepared to deal with networking in the real world!
