IT networks seamlessly connect devices to the data and tools that provide users with the information they need. This 100% online course will teach you to configure, manage and troubleshoot hard-wired and wireless IT networks. Key topics include network design, security, routing and switching, cloud computing, IPv6 and forensics. Upon successful completion, you will be prepared for the CompTIA Network+ certification exam (N10-007).
CompTIA Network+ Certification is widely considered the industry standard for initiating a career supporting IT network infrastructure. Skills such as configuring, deploying and troubleshooting networks are highly valued by premier employers in the business, non-profit and government sectors.
