The course material covers various topics, including network fundamentals, network implementations, network operations, network security, and network troubleshooting. A CompTIA Network+ certification prepares students for a lucrative career working with IT infrastructure by covering troubleshooting, configuring, and managing networks. There is tremendous upward mobility in this field.
The Computer Information Specialist 4-course bundle includes IT Fundamentals+, A+, Network+, and Security + and provides preparatory training for the corresponding certifications.
The A+ portion builds on the concepts learned in the IT Fundamentals+ course, using this knowledge and more to demonstrate baseline security skills for IT support professionals, configure device operating systems including Windows, Mac, Linux, Chrome OS, Android, and iOS, administer client-based as well as cloud-based (SaaS) software, troubleshoot and problem solve core service and support challenges while applying best practices for documentation, change management and scripting. Students also learn how to support basic IT infrastructure and networking, configure and support PC, mobile and IoT device hardware, implement basic data backup and recovery methods and apply best practices for data storage and management.
