CompTIA is not a vendor-specific certification programme, which means it is dealing with multiple vendor’s devices and technologies.
Because of CompTIA, you don’t need to go for a vendor (Dell, IBM, Cisco, Juniper, hp, Microsoft AWS etc.) specific certification. These certifications will work for all vendors. Therefore you will get the job opportunities from various companies, it doesn’t matter, what types of vendor specific devices they are using.
CompTIA is more focused on theories of various types of vendors technologies available in the market rather than configuration part of networking devices. Because they only provide IT certifications, they don’t manufacture any networking devices and equipment.
CompTIA is mostly providing entry-level certifications. So if you want to move further in your career, you have to consider other certification which is vendor specific.
These are the following organisations which provide vendor-specific certification you can consider to get higher designation in your IT career.
