CompTIA Network+ Certification

Request more details:

CompTIA Network+ validates the knowledge and skills of networking professionals. It is an international, vendor-neutral certification that recognizes a technician's ability to describe the features and functions of networking components and to install, configure and troubleshoot basic networking hardware, protocols and services. This practical 'hands-on' 5-day course will teach students the fundamental principles of installing and supporting networks.
Students should meet the following criteria prior to attending the course:
- Taken and passed both CompTIA A+ Certification exams or have equivalent knowledge and
- Six months to one year of post-A+ Certification support experience.
- Extensive experience of supporting end-users and PC-based systems.
