IT professionals need to be able to network effectively in order for their businesses to run efficiently, regardless of whether they work from home or in an office. This is exactly what CompTIA Network+ certification is all about! CompTIA Network+ certifies candidates to support networks on any platform. It is a vendor-neutral networking certification. It provides the foundation to work on networks wherever and whenever you want.
Other credentials are too broad for the practical skills and in-depth knowledge required in today’s networking situations. CompTIA Network+, on the other hand, examines the technical skills required to set up, manage, and troubleshoot the critical networks that organizations rely on. CompTIA Network+ was launched in 2000 and has helped launch over 500,000 IT professionals around the globe. To keep things current, CompTIA Network+ (N10-018) was released on September 15, 2021.
