Program Description


The program prepares students for the industry recognized CompTIA Network+ certification exam and validates the knowledge and skills of networking professionals.

Although not a prerequisite, it is recommended that CompTIA Network+ candidates have at least nine months of experience in network support or administration or adequate academic training, along with a CompTIA A+ certification.

  1. take the CompTIA Network+ certification exam;
  2. configure networking on systems and workstations;
  3. understand and setup TCP/IP networks and subnets; and
  4. maintain physical and wireless network connections and equipment.
