Course Details

Introduction

CompTIA Network+ validates the knowledge and skills of networking professionals. It is an international, vendor-neutral certification that recognizes a technician's ability to describe the features and functions of networking components and to install, configure and troubleshoot basic networking hardware, protocols and services.

CompTIA's Network+ has transitioned from a lifetime certification policy to one that requires continuing education or recertification.

CompTIA has made this change to maintain ISO 17024 accreditation for Network+. ISO accreditation is extremely important because of its global credibility.
