CompTIA has introduced an update to CompTIA Network+, a certification that validates the skills needed to securely establish, maintain and troubleshoot the essential networks that are the backbone of the digital economy.
CompTIA Network+ is a building block for early career IT professionals looking to expand their networking skills. The exam emphasises the foundational elements of networks and hands-on experience working with networking components. Areas of emphasis on the new exam include IP addressing, connecting networks, wireless standards and technologies, network availability and securing and hardening networks.
“IT professionals who earn the CompTIA Network+ credential have demonstrated their ability and confidence to provide critical network support on any network, anywhere,” said Randall Edwards, Senior Manager, Certification Products, CompTIA. “It is the only certification that covers the hands-on skills and precise knowledge needed in today’s multi-vendor networking environments.”
