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.
CompTIA Network+ features flexible training options including self-paced learning, live online training, custom training and labs to advance the career development of IT professionals in network administration.
Explain basic networking concepts including network services, physical connections, topologies and architecture, and cloud connectivity.
Explain routing technologies and networking devices; deploy ethernet solutions and configure wireless technologies.
Monitor and optimize networks to ensure business continuity.
Explain security concepts and network attacks in order to harden networks against threats.
Troubleshoot common cable, connectivity, and software issues related to networking.
