CompTIA Network+

Overview

The stakes are high. Data networks are more crucial for businesses than ever before: they are the lifeline to the critical financial, healthcare, and information services that need to function at the highest, most secure level. With a CompTIA Network+ certification, you will possess the key skills to troubleshoot, configure and manage these systems and keep your company productive.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 12% job growth is expected in network and computer systems over the next seven years. Additionally, CompTIA Network+ professionals are known to excel in their job: 53% of IT and business executives agree that certified staff performs at a higher level than non-certified staff; this according to the CompTIA International Technology Adoption and Workforce Trends report. Global Knowledge’s IT Skills and Salary Report estimates the average salary of a Network+ certified IT professional at about $74,000.

This course will build on your existing user-level knowledge and experience with personal computer operating systems and networks to present fundamental skills and concepts that you will 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.
