Course Description


The CompTIA® Network+® (Exam N10-005) course builds on your existing user-level knowledge and experience with personal computer operating systems and networks to present the fundamental skills and concepts that you will need to use on the job in any type of networking career. If you are pursuing a CompTIA technical certification path, the CompTIA A+ certification is an excellent first step to take before preparing for the CompTIA Network+ certification.

The CompTIA® Network+® (Exam N10-005) course can benefit you in two ways. It can assist you if you are preparing to take the CompTIA® Network+® examination (Exam N10-005). Also, if your job duties include network troubleshooting, installation, or maintenance, or if you are preparing for any type of network-related career, it provides the background knowledge and skills you will require to be successful.
