Why Take Network+ Training?

CompTIA Network+ Certification is a baseline standard for assessing an individuals understanding of IT security and network administration. Created and administered by CompTIA this certification is recognized worldwide and is a starting point for anyone looking to build a career in network administration. It is also a stepping stone to other branches of IT including cybersecurity. As a Platinum Partner to CompTIA, TrainACE offers high-quality, instructor-led training for Network+, preparing students to pass the certification.

Network+ often goes hand-in-hand with A+ certification when it comes to getting a job in the IT industry. Many organizations see both qualifications as a must have for their entry-level IT positions. But as important as the certification is, being able to put your technical learning into practical use is important. TrainACE Network+ classes have a high percentage of hands-on learning as part of the training experience. The result is that you are prepared to take action in the real world as well as pass the technical exams.

Prerequisites:

While CompTIA Network+ is considered an entry-level qualification, some experience in computers is strongly recommended. Many students prepare themselves for the course by first taking the CompTIA A+ training and certification.

The Network+ training course is intended for those wishing to qualify with CompTIA Network+ certification. CompTIA's Network+ Certification is a foundation-level certification designed for IT professionals with around one year's experience whose job role is focused on network administration.
