Course Description
Describe the major networking technologies, systems, skills, and tools in use in modern networks.

Certification
The CompTIA® Network+ course is designed to help you prepare for the N10-006 exam. Taking this course and using this student guide will help you prepare for the certification. You should also refer to the exam objectives to see how they map to the course content.

Target Student
This course is intended for entry-level computer support professionals with a basic knowledge of computer hardware, software, and operating systems who wish to increase their knowledge and understanding of networking concepts and acquire the required skills to prepare for a career in network support or administration, or who wish to prepare for the CompTIA Network+ certification (Exam N10-006). A typical student taking the CompTIA® Network+® (Exam N10-006) course should have a minimum of nine months of professional computer support experience as a PC or help desk technician. Networking experience is helpful but not mandatory; A+ certification or equivalent skills and knowledge is helpful but not mandatory.

Prerequisites
To ensure your success in this course, you will need basic Windows end-user computer skills.

In addition, we highly recommend that you hold the CompTIA A+ certification, or have equivalent skills and knowledge.

Course Objectives
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  • Identify basic network theory concepts and major network communications methods.
  • Describe bounded network media.
  • Identify unbounded network media.
  • Identify the major types of network implementations.
  • Identify TCP/IP addressing and data delivery methods.
  • Implement routing technologies.
