Introduction:
The network field is perhaps one of the fastest growing fields of expertise in the industry, and several certifications are available in the Network field, including the CompTIA Network + certification. Networking is the most integral component of information security today and network knowledge is a requirement to be a proficient information security specialist. CompTIA Network+ prepares networking professionals to earn vendor-neutral certifications in other areas of expertise. A certification by CompTIA, Network+ (N+), helps demonstrate a person’s knowledge in TCP/IP, managing a network, network operating systems, and installing and upgrading networks.

With the comprehensive number of networks functioning in all types of organisations and companies, network technicians need IT certification on a mid-level to demonstrate their competence in the fields of networks design, network cabling, setup of network hardware, installation, network support and troubleshooting. The CompTIA Network + Certification is a type of certification for network technicians and proves the competence of its holders in the above-mentioned areas. It is an advantage providing proof of the adequate knowledge and skills technicians possessing it have, and it is a benefit that enhances their eligibility when they apply for jobs.

Prerequisite:

Recommendation: It is recommended for CompTIA Network+ candidates to have the following:

* CompTIA A+ certification or equivalent knowledge, though
* CompTIA A+ certification is not required.
* Have at least 9 to 12 months of work experience in IT Networking

Course Outline:
In this course, you will be introduced to general concepts and methodologies related to network testing;

* Networking Concepts
* Infrastructure
* Network Operations
* Network Security
* Network Troubleshooting & Tools

CompTIA Network+ N10-007 has been updated and reorganized to address the current networking technologies with expanded coverage of several domains by adding the following topics;

* Critical security concepts to helping networking professionals work with security practitioners
* Key cloud computing best practices and typical service models
* Coverage of newer hardware and virtualization techniques
