CompTIA Security+ Continuing Education (CE) Program

Meet your CompTIA Security+ certification renewal requirements with this all-inclusive and convenient continuing education program.

CompTIA Security+ certifications achieved on or after January 1, 2011, are valid for three years from the date issued. Therefore, to remain certified, you must renew within three years of your certification date. Doing so helps you continuously develop IT security skills and keeps your expertise up-to-date.

You can renew your Security+ credential in two ways:

  • Option 1: Pass the most current CompTIA Security+ exam prior to the three-year expiration date
  • Option 2: Earn 50 continuing education units (CEUs) per renewal period by participating in qualified activities

To help you satisfy Option 2, we created our CompTIA Security+ Continuing Education (CE) Program. This convenient, all-inclusive program includes:

  • Around-the-clock access to qualifying CE activities to meet your renewal requirement
  • Payment of your CompTIA annual maintenance fees for the full three years 
  • Convenient tracking of your CE activities

With one-year access to this program of security-related web seminars and self-paced e-Learning, you can easily meet CompTIA's Security+ 50-CEU requirement. We will regularly add material on the latest security topics.
