CompTIA Network+

CompTIA Network+ validates the technical skills needed to securely establish, maintain and troubleshoot the essential networks that businesses rely on. Unlike other vendor-specific networking certifications, CompTIA Network+ prepares candidates to support networks on any platform. CompTIA Network+ is the only certification that covers the specific skills that network professionals need. Other certifications are so broad, they don’t cover the hands-on skills and precise knowledge needed in today’s networking environments.

Audience:

Individuals whose job responsibilities include network administration, installation and security within their organization.

Prerequisites

CompTIA recommends 9 to 12 months of network-related IT experience prior to attending this training.
