CompTIA Network+

Description

You will learn the fundamentals of network and gain experience in the configuration, management, and troubleshooting of common wired and wireless network devices, as well as discussing emerging technologies such as unified communications, mobile, cloud, and virtualization technologies.

The CompTIA Network+ (N10-008) certification is a entry-level, vendor-neutral certification that validates that you have the knowledge and skills required to securely establish, maintain and troubleshoot the essential networks that businesses rely on.

The CompTIA Network+ certification exam, and this course, is focused on providing you a foundation in the networking field, including a great understanding of information technology infrastructure while covering troubleshooting, configuring, and managing network devices and clients.

This course is designed for junior network administrators, datacenter support technicians, network engineers, NOC technicians, cable technicians, system administrators, and telecommunication technicians, or anyone who is trying to get a better understanding of the concepts involved in networking and its associated toolsets.  

By the end of the course, you will be comfortable with the tasks required of a network technician and be ready to take on a network administration role in your organization!
