You can either go for hardware, software, network, security or server and in each of these categories, there is a corresponding CompTIA certification exam that you can take. One area that you can specialize in is the CompTIA HTI, which stands for Home Technology Integrator. This is the predecessor of the DHTI or the Digital Home Technology Integrator.
To be certified, you need to take the CompTIA HTI exams. For this, you need to undergo the CompTIA HTI+ entry-level certification program.
