What Is CompTIA AITP?

Blog Single

The Association of IT Professionals (AITP) began in the 1950s, bringing together tech professionals to share ideas and influence the evolution of technology. In 2017, CompTIA acquired and relaunched the professional society as CompTIA AITP to help tech workers start, grow and advance their IT careers. With chapters in 15 states and the support of a professional association staff, CompTIA AITP aims to help individuals connect with other IT professionals and grow their networks, strengthen their technical knowledge and soft skills, develop a career path, and keep current on technology and business trends.

If you work in IT – or want to work in IT – take a look at the ways CompTIA AITP can help you take charge of your career.
