CompTIA, a non-profit association for the global IT industry, introduced CompTIA Mobility+, a new internationally recognized skills certification for the fast-growing area of mobile technologies.
CompTIA Mobility+ covers the knowledge and skills IT professionals need to deploy, integrate, support and manage a mobile environment, including mobile device management, troubleshooting, security and network infrastructure, according to the association.

“Accommodating mobile devices and apps and optimizing the mobile experience for customers and employees alike are top priorities for virtually all organizations,” Terry Erdle, executive vice president, skills certification at CompTIA, said in a statement. “But the various facets of the mobile ecosystem present many challenges for IT professionals, who must balance user expectations with requirements for availability, reliability and security.”

CompTIA Mobility+ will identify IT professionals who possess the validated skills to deploy, integrate, manage and secure mobile devices and platforms, Erdle said.

Potential candidates for the CompTIA Mobility+ credential include mobility architects, mobility engineers, network administrators and security administrators. The certification is best suited for individuals who are CompTIA Network+ certified or have equivalent working knowledge; and have at least 18 months of work experience in the administration of mobile devices in the enterprise.

This is the second mobility-related certification introduced by CompTIA this year. In October, the association launched CompTIA Mobile App Security+, a credential aimed at raising security awareness and preparedness in the mobile app development area.
