CompTIA’s Network+ validates the knowledge and skills to troubleshoot, configure and manage common wired and wireless network. Network+ certifies a basic understanding of emerging technologies including unified communications, mobile, cloud and virtualization technologies. CompTIA Network+ is accredited by ANSI as meeting the ISO/IEC 17024 standard and is approved by U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to fulfill Directive 8570.01-M requirements. It is compliant with government regulations under the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA).

What will I achieve?

  • Design and implement functional networks.
  • Configure, manage, and maintain essential network devices.
  • Use devices such as switches and routers to segment network traffic and create resilient networks.
  • Identify benefits and drawbacks of existing network configurations.
  • Implement network security, standards, and protocols.
