TrainACE offers Security (Plus) + training in the Washington, DC Metro area: Greenbelt, MD and Ashburn, VA and online.

In today’s ever-changing environment it has become an absolute must to implement and maintain security technologies and policies. The Security+ certification training course takes the first step in teaching you to implement and monitor security on networks and computer systems, and respond to security breaches in the appropriate manner, making your skill set valuable to organizations of all sizes and industries.

Businesses of all sizes know the importance of information and IT security and have continued to invest as such. This investment is evidenced by the fact that many government employees in Information Assurance (IA) positions, and any contractors who serve certain IA functions, are now required to have a CompTIA Security+ certification. This requirement was put into effect as part of the aforementioned DoD-8570 directive, and most directly applies to entry and mid-level IT personnel.

At TrainACE, our CompTIA Security+ training courses are taught by certified IT security professionals with a minimum of 3 years teaching experience. Our instructors are also required to have IT security and cyber security experience along with additional, supplementary certifications and continued education in the industry. All classes are 40 hours long and available as daytime, evening, or weekend schedules.

Best price in the DMV area to get certification training

It's the best price in the DMV area to get certification training. Classes are small (2-15). They provide training and testing guarantees. Very conducive to learning.

My go to place for certifications

My go to place for certifications. Many active duty and veterans go to trainace because It is covered by the g.i. bill. Staff and instructors are nice and my husband and I keep in touch often. They also provide job boards and have real-time knowledge of the IT community and what is needed/sought for when it comes to certifications. I highly suggest setting up roots with this company as your main cert provider. Love you guys! <3

Absolutely worth the money spent

Absolutely worth the money spent - took the Certified Ethical Hacker course as a one-week bootcamp. The cost includes the EC Council exam, which I passed excellently thanks to having James Younger as a teacher for the course.

I had a great time at the Greenbelt teaching location!

I had a great time at the Greenbelt teaching location! Also I became a CCNA with a diligent yet fun instructor. If you decide to take training there, you will be in good hands.

I just completed the CCNA course and it was a great hands-on training experience.

I just completed the CCNA course and it was a great hands-on training experience. This is NOT “Death by PowerPoint” training. In fact, there was not a single PowerPoint slide used in the entire course. The instructor has years of experience and is a Cisco expert. He explained complicated topics in the simplest terms and then we practiced on actual CISCO routers and switches. TrainACE has a great facility that is easy to get to. I highly recommend TrainACE to anybody that wants to actually learn the CCNA objectives and not just be taught the test.
