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 3-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.
