CompTIA

Network+

CompTIA Network+

CompTIA Network+ helps develop a career in IT infrastructure covering troubleshooting, configuring, and managing networks. It is the only one that identifies the specific abilities that network engineers require.

Career Certification

CompTIA Network+ validates the technical skills needed to securely establish, maintain and troubleshoot the essential networks that businesses rely on.

Vendor Neutral

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.

Exams

CompTIA Network+ features training and labs to advance the career development of IT professionals in network administration.

What is the CompTIA Network+?

  • It is an entry-to-mid-level certification exam covering network installation, configuration, management, and troubleshooting.
  • The certification shows that the person who earned it has essential skills in networking concepts.
  • It includes network types (e.g., LAN (local area networks)/WAN (wide area networks)), topologies, functions of the OSI model, and TCP/IP addressing.
  • Another crucial aspect of the Network+ is that you won’t be focusing on any one particular vendor. Instead, this is a vendor-neutral exam that will help you work with any technology.
  • You won’t be limited to CISCO, Microsoft, or any other software or hardware network components.
  • This certification opens up many more doors for a thriving, successful career in the IT field.
