CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner

The CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP) Certification is a vendor-neutral credential. The CASP exam is an internationally targeted validation of advanced-level security knowledge and skills.

The CASP exam can certify that the successful candidate has the technical skills and knowledge necessary to design, conceptualize, and engineer secure solutions across complex enterprise environments. The candidate will apply critical thinking and judgment across a broad spectrum of security disciplines to propose and implement solutions that map to enterprise drivers.


A minimum of 10 years experience in IT administration including at least 5 years of hands-on technical security experience.


There is no necessary prerequisite, the CASP certification is intended to follow CompTIA Security+ or equivalent experience and has a technical, "hands-on" concentrate at the enterprise level.

Duration of the course: Full Time: 5 Days ( 8 hrs/day)
