CompTIA Network+

CompTIA's Network+ is the premier vendor-neutral networking certification. Our Network+ Prep Course is designed to provide the foundation you need not only to be productive on the job but also to be successful in more specialized topics and in your pursuit of vendor-specific certifications. Companies such as Dell, HP, Ricoh, Sharp, and Xerox recommend or require CompTIA Network+ for their networking technicians. It is a technical prerequisite option for IT technicians seeking to join the Apple Consultants Network, and is recognized by the U.S. Department of Defense.


Earning CompTIA's Network+ certification increases your value in the marketplace, providing proof of your knowledge, skills, and ability to manage, maintain, troubleshoot, install, operate, and configure basic network infrastructure. Our Network+ Prep Course points you in the right direction, allowing you to demonstrate the concepts covered on the Network+ exam in a real-world, hands-on environment. You will work through several practice exams to reinforce your knowledge. You will gain essential networking skills in labs that feature networking equipment from Cisco, Linksys, Netgear, ZyXel, and others. As an added bonus you may access the practice exam on your own computer.


Our Network+ Prep Course uses CompTIA Approved Quality Curriculum (CAQC). The CompTIA CAQC symbol assures you that all test objectives are covered in the training material.
