"The Network+ instructor was committed to doing whatever was necessary to ensure everyone had the knowledge to pass the exam. He was first rate. The staff was very accommodating. All in all, the boot camp was a stressful but satisfying experience."

-W. Rea, North Attleboro, MA

The CompTIA Network+ (Exam N10-008) certification ensures that the successful candidate has the important knowledge and skills necessary to manage, maintain, troubleshoot, install, operate and configure basic network infrastructure, describe networking technologies, basic design principles, and adhere to wiring standards and use testing tools.

CompTIA Security+ (Exam SY0-701) is the primary course you will need to take if your job responsibilities include securing network services, network devices, and network traffic. It is also the main course you will take to prepare for the CompTIA Security+ examination. In this course, you'll build on your knowledge and professional experience with computer hardware, operating systems, and networks as you acquire the specific skills required to implement basic security services on any type of computer network.

Network+ certification

CompTIA Network+ (Exam N10-008) helps develop a career in IT infrastructure covering troubleshooting, configuring, and managing networks.

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

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.

CompTIA Network+ features flexible training options including self-paced learning, live online training, custom training and labs to advance the career development of IT professionals in network administration.
