CompTIA Network+ Certification
ILT, VIRTUAL/WEBEX, ON-SITE
This course provides the basic knowledge needed to plan, install, maintain, and troubleshoot modern networks in a vendor-neutral format, this includes physical network components and technologies, logical structures, common protocols, and network security. Covering the configuration, management, and troubleshooting of common wired and wireless network devices. Also focus on specific areas like critical security concepts, key cloud computing best practices and typical service models, newer hardware and virtualization techniques and concepts to give individuals the combination of skills to keep the network resilient.
The CompTIA Network+ Certification is considered by many employers as a prerequisite for entry level IT employment in the area of IT Networks. And it serves as a solid foundation for other Networking and IT Certification Programs offered by vendors such as Microsoft and Cisco.
