** Master the CompTIA Network+ Exam with Help from an Expert in the Field! **
Taught by an expert in information technology and cybersecurity with over 20 years of experience, this course is a fun way to master the fundamentals of networking. I have taught hundreds of students in my bootcamps and college classes on how to pass the A+, Network+, Security+, and Certified Ethical Hacker exams with my students obtaining over a 90% first-time passing rate.
You will learn the fundamentals of network and gain experience in the configuration, management, and troubleshooting of common wired and wireless network devices. Also, we will discuss emerging technologies such as unified communications, mobile, cloud, and virtualization technologies.
This course is designed to help prepare you for the CompTIA Network+ (N10-006) certification exam. This course covers the five domains for the Network+ (N10-006) certification exam: Network Architecture, Network Operations, Network Security, Troubleshooting, and Industry Standards, Practices, and Network Theory.
