Our CompTIA Network+ N10-008 course covers the concepts and skills needed to plan, install, maintain, and troubleshoot modern networks in a vendor-neutral format. This includes physical network components and technologies, logical structures, common protocols, and network security. This course maps to the CompTIA Network+ N10-008 certification exam. Exam objective coverage is marked throughout the course, and there is an extensive glossary appendix.

This course assumes that you have basic knowledge at using and maintaining individual workstations. The knowledge required to obtain the CompTIA A+ certification is helpful but not necessary.
