CompTIA On-Demand Learner Profiles
CompTIA On-Demand is a self-study training solution that was designed for two types of learners. First, CompTIA On-Demand is a great fit for individuals with considerable IT experience who don't need a traditional 5-day class to prepare for a CompTIA exam. They can pick and choose topics to make the most effective use of their time. Second, CompTIA On-Demand is perfect for highly-motivated individuals who are new to a technology and need to space their learning over a period of weeks or months. These learners can take their time and repeat sections as needed until they master the new concepts.

About CompTIA On-Demand
Our CompTIA On-Demand classes are self-study courses with 30 to 40 hours of content. They include hours of videos, hands-on labs using the actual software, and knowledge checks that mirror the content found in the traditional live instructor-led version of this course. Those features are all part of the standard CompTIA On-Demand training. But don't settle for any other self-study class! Check out the "ONLC Extras" that you get when purchasing this course from us.
