Exam Information

In CompTIA Network+, the topics are mostly generic in that they can apply to networking equipment regardless of vendor. The Network+ exam was designed to test the skills of network technicians with 18 to 24 months of experience in the field. It tests areas of networking technologies such as the definition of a protocol, the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model and its layers, and the concepts of network design and implementation.

Prepare for the following certification

Career Prospects
  • Network Administrator
  • Network Technician
  • Network Installer
