Building and maintaining networks are among the most important skills to have as an IT professional. Whether you're new to the field or ready to move forward in your career, a CompTIA Network+ certification course could be a great next step. This certification confirms that you have the knowledge you need to configure and troubleshoot both wireless and wired hardware. You'll stand out among other job candidates when you gain the experience this online course provides and earn this valuable credential.

In the course, you'll learn the fundamentals you need to prepare for the CompTIA Network+ certification exam (N10-007) and start a career as a network technician. With its comprehensive curriculum, you'll master basic networking concepts and learn about network design, security, routing and switching, cloud computing, IPv6 and forensics, and common security practices.

To help you learn networking skills in an interactive setting, you can set up your own virtual lab environment using VirtualBox. With VirtualBox, you'll have the opportunity to put your new knowledge into action with networking scenarios you're likely to encounter during your IT career.

This course offers enrollment with or without a voucher. The voucher is prepaid access to sit for the certifying exam upon eligibility. *Note: Students enrolling in the course will need to sit for N10-007 by June 2022 due to the exam retirement.
