CompTIA A+ and Network+ Boot Camp
Institute of Information Technology provides superior training for A+ and Network+ Boot Camp: In a matter of days our industry experts will prepare you for two CompTIA A+ exams and one Network+ exam. CompTIA A+ Certification is a testing program sponsored by CompTIA that certifies the knowledge and technical competency of entry-level computer service technicians. A+ Certification is a non-vendor, non-product-specific certification program. It provides an industry-recognized and valuable credential that will open doors with prospective employers and/or lead to job advancement opportunities. The program is aligned with major computer hardware and software vendors, distributors, resellers, and publications. A+ certification covers two main areas of competency: Core Hardware and Operating System (OS) Technologies. To become certified, a student must pass two exams: CompTIA A+ certification exam code 220-901 and CompTIA A+ certification exam code 220-902 The CompTIA Network+ certification is an international industry credential that validates the knowledge of networking professionals. This course teaches the fundamentals of networking and prepares students for the Network+ certification exams. Through hands-on training and exercises, students learn the skills and concepts needed byall networking professionals. In order to be certified in the latest version of CompTIA Network+, students have to pass exam N10-005 Network+ Certification. The exam addresses the latest skills needed by technicians, such as basic principles on how to secure a network. The exam covers network technologies, media and topologies, devices, management, tools and security. Although not a prerequisite, it is recommended that CompTIA Network+ candidates have at least nine months of experience in network support or administration or academic training, along with a CompTIA A+ certification.
