CompTIA CertMaster Learn for Security+ (SY0-501) is a comprehensive online training environment that delivers an engaging, interactive learning experience.

"All of the content within CertMaster Learn is aligned with the specific objectives of the CompTIA Security+ exam; and is optimized for digital delivery to provide an engaging and interactive learning experience," said Thomas Reilly, vice president, CompTIA Learning.  "Among the unique features of CertMaster Learn is that it delivers a customizable learning plan to fit the needs and study preferences of each individual."

CertMaster Learn for Security+ includes 24 self-paced lessons, each featuring instructional content, corresponding videos and flashcards to review terms, definitions and acronyms. Along the way learners can test their knowledge of key concepts by answering more than 400 multiple choice questions, with extensive feedback included in each answer.

Each of the 24 lessons is also accompanied by an interactive performance-based question, requiring the learner to apply the knowledge they've gained in a scenario based on the real-world cybersecurity environment.
