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.

- maintain physical and wireless network connections and equipment.
