IT networks seamlessly connect devices to the data and tools that provide users with the information they need. This 100% online course will teach you to configure, manage and troubleshoot hard-wired and wireless IT networks. Key topics include network design, security, routing and switching, cloud computing, IPv6 and forensics. Upon successful completion, you will be prepared for the CompTIA Network+ certification exam (N10-007).
A thorough CompTIA Network+ certification training course will prepare you to take the CompTIA Network+ certification exam. The exam is a comprehensive validation of the knowledge and skills required to set up, deploy and manage a hard-wired or wireless IT network.
It tests for professional-level competency in the following areas:
According to CompTIA, the Network+ certification is ideal for establishing a career deploying and supporting network infrastructure. Professionals who hold the Network+ certification commonly hold positions that include:
Because the IT industry is subject to constant and rapid change, CompTIA encourages its certificate holders to pursue an aggressive schedule of continuing education (CE) once they achieve Network+ certification. The Network+ certification is valid for three years after the date of your exam. After expiration, CompTIA certifications can be renewed through CE for additional three-year intervals.
Although many IT network support positions involve hands-on work with networks, devices, network software and troubleshooting, CompTIA notes that many companies are opening user and customer support jobs to work from home (WFH) status.
