Total Credits Required for Certificate: 13*

* A new college orientation requirement, completion of the one-credit ACDV 101  course, Transitioning to College, went into effect spring 2010. If you are a credit student who is new to college (meaning you have not successfully completed college coursework at another institution(s)), you are required to take ACDV 101  during your first semester at CCBC, thereby increasing the number of credits required for the certificate to 14 credits. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) in order for this requirement to be waived.

Program Outcomes:

Upon completion of this certificate, students will be able to:

  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.

Program Description:

The program prepares students for the industry recognized CompTIA Network+ certification exam and validates the knowledge and skills of networking professionals. The Network+ certification exam is an international, vendor-neutral certification that recognizes a technician’s ability to describe the features and functions of networking components and to install, configure and troubleshoot basic networking hardware, protocols, and services. 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.
