CompTIA Network+

Target audience and course prerequisites

CompTIA Network+ is aimed at IT professionals with job roles such as network administrator, network technician, network installer, help desk technician and IT cable installer.

Ideally, you should have successfully completed the “CompTIA A+ Support Skills” course, achieved CompTIA A+ certification, and have around 9-12 months’ experience of networking support or IT administration. It is not necessary that you pass the A+ exams before completing Network+ certification, but it is recommended.

Regardless of whether you have passed A+, it is recommended that you have the following skills and knowledge before starting this course:

  • Configure and support PC, laptop, mobile (smartphone / tablet), and print devices.
  • Know basic network terminology and functions (such as Ethernet, TCP/IP, switches, routers).
  • Configure and manage users, groups, and shared resources in a simple SOHO network.
  • Understand the use of basic access control measures, such as authentication, security policy, encryption, and firewalls.

Course outcomes

This course will teach you the fundamental principles of installing, configuring, and troubleshooting network technologies and help you to progress a career in network administration. It will prepare you to take the CompTIA Network+ exam by providing 100% coverage of the objectives and content examples listed on the syllabus. Study of the course can act as groundwork for more advanced training.

The CompTIA Network+ credential proves knowledge of networking features and functions and is the leading vendor-neutral certification for networking professionals. Worldwide nearly 500,000 individuals are CompTIA Network+ certified and 91% of hiring managers indicate CompTIA certifications are valuable in validating IT employee skills and expertise. Dell, HP, Sharp, Xerox and Ricoh are among the companies that employ Network+ certified staff and it is supported by top organizations, such as Apple, Best Buy, Canon, Cisco, Intel and U.S. Navy.

On course completion, you will be able to:

  • Describe the features of different network protocols and products for LANs, WANs, and wireless networks.
  • Understand the functions and features of TCP/IP addressing and protocols.
  • Identify threats to network resources and appropriate security countermeasures.
  • Install and configure network cabling and appliances.
