IT Security and Network Technician
Network + builds on existing user-level knowledge and experience with personal computer operating systems and networks to present fundamental skills and concepts that students will use on the job in any type of networking career. This course is designed to provide network technicians with the foundation-level skills they need to install, operate, manage, maintain, and troubleshoot a corporate network. This course will help prepare students for the CompTIA Network+ N10-007 certification exam. CompTIA recommends students have CompTIA A+ certification or equivalent experience prior to attempting the N10-007 exam. As in the A+ Comprehensive course, students gain critical hands-on experience through a series of Performance Based Exam Prep Simulations. These simulations are a mixture of Operating System and Application Training Demonstrations, Interactive Graphic Windows Exercises, Interactive Command-Line Windows Exercises, and Interactive Configuration and Identification Exercises. The simulations are blended into the training, to provide reinforcement of topics, as well as to provide the critical “hands-on” learning experience necessary to gain competency.
