Common CompTIA Network+ Training & Exam Questions:
Globally recognized and vendor-neutral certifications such as the CompTIA Network+ can prove valuable when seeking employment, especially if candidates do not have extensive work experience. Employers often use certifications such as these to identify potential employees that have the skills necessary to perform the job. Additionally, if you support the U.S. Department of Defense as either an employee or contractor it is a required certification for their Technical Level 1 positions through the DoD 8570.01-M Mandate.
In other words, if you want to secure a job then it is definitely worth the investment to meet most job posting requirements.
CompTIA Network+ will provide a broader range of networking knowledge and skills that can be applied to multi-vendor environments. CCNA will provide skills as they relate specifically to Cisco products. We suggest earning your CompTIA Network+ first and then pursuing the more concentrated CCNA if that is required for the jobs you wish to pursue.
If you already have a strong understanding of computers, we suggest pursuing your CompTIA Network+ certification. If you are new to computers and need to develop your understanding of computer hardware and software, then the CompTIA A+ may be the best place to start.
It can be! Any certification can be difficult if candidates are not properly prepared. Proper preparedness relates to both understanding the exam material and feeling comfortable in a testing environment. We design our classes to address both needs so that students have the best chance possible to pass on their first attempt. If you have little or no experience in the field prior to the exam, then you should invest a significant amount of time studying the material and applying it in testing environments as much as possible. If you have real-world application of the material, it may take you less time to absorb and apply the concepts related to the CompTIA Network+ Certification Exam.
According to Payscale.com, Network+ certification holders earn an average of $66,250/year. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, also expects a 12% job growth in network and computer systems over the next seven years. So job demand is also present.
