Network +

Duration 5 days

The CompTIA Network+ qualification is recognised globally and attests to the holder’s basic competency in network planning, installation, troubleshooting, and general management. The Network+ training scheme consists of five days of classroom based hands-on workshop coupled with home study.

The workshop provides help and practice with exam techniques plus the theory tested in the exam. Delegates will work through a series of practical activities as they build up a network from scratch, install and configure network clients and servers, then securely attach the network to the internet. Typical software delegates will be exposed to include Windows 2003 and Windows 2008, Linux and Apple Macs.
