This course is intended for entry-level computer support professionals with a basic knowledge of computer hardware, software, and operating systems to prepare for the CompTIA Network+ (Exam N10-007), or who wish to increase their knowledge and understanding of networking concepts and gain the required skills to prepare for a career in network support or administration.
It is not necessary that you pass the CompTIA A+ Certification 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.
- Understand TCP/IP addressing, core protocols and troubleshooting tools.
5 days. Hands on.
The exam can be taken on day 5 of the course, or scheduled for a later date if required.
The CompTIA Network+ course is designed to help you prepare for the N10-007 exam. Taking this course will help you prepare for the certification. On completion, delegates will be able to describe the major networking technologies, systems, skills, and tools in use in modern networks.
