With so many IT skills to learn, a big question we often see is what CompTIA certification path should I take? The best CompTIA order of study, beginner-level to advanced, is categorized below.

Our list includes career paths in cybersecurity, the Cloud, IT infrastructure, and more. Additionally, some recommendations we list as beginner-friendly are normally categorized as “mid-level,” and we also list recommendations of supplemental certifications.
