FREE eBook - Network+ Certification Study Guide
It is very difficult for a recruiter or employer to evaluate whether an individual is
competent computer technology professional because the technology is very complicated.
For this reason the Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) has defined
specific skills and knowledge that a computer technology professional must have. This
is a great advantage to employers because, if an individual meets the CompTIA standards,
they can be confident that the individual is a competent computer technology professional.
CompTIA does not do any testing itself, it only specifies the skills and knowledge that
a computer technology professional must have to competently perform the job. The testing
is administered by independent testing organizations such as Sylvan Prometric. When an
individual passes the required examination, CompTIA awards them certification. CompTIA
does not provide any training materials to prepare for the examinations. Training and
and exam preparation is provided by independent training organizations.
There are several different areas of certification. A+ Computer Technician was the first
certification developed by CompTIA. Network+ defines specific skills and knowledge that
a computer networking technician must have. It verifies that you have the knowledge to
competently perform the computer networking technician job.
This ebook provides some training to prepare you for the Network+ certification exam.
Holding CompTIA certification is a great advantage to a computer technology professional
because it provides proof to employers that they competence required to perform the job.
Certification can help you acquire employment in the computer technology profession. In fact
