The network field is perhaps one of the fastest growing fields of expertise in the industry, and several certifications are available in the Network field, including the CompTIA Network + certification. Networking is the most integral component of information security today and network knowledge is a requirement to be a proficient information security specialist. CompTIA Network+ prepares networking professionals to earn vendor-neutral certifications in other areas of expertise. A certification by CompTIA, Network+ (N+), helps demonstrate a person's knowledge in TCP/IP, managing a network, network operating systems, and installing and upgrading networks.

With the comprehensive number of networks functioning in all types of organisations and companies, network technicians need IT certification on a mid-level to demonstrate their competence in the fields of networks design, network cabling, setup of network hardware, installation, network support and troubleshooting. The CompTIA Network + Certification is a type of certification for network technicians and proves the competence of its holders in the above mentioned areas. It is an advantage providing proof of the adequate knowledge and skills technicians possessing it have, and it is a benefit that enhances their eligibility when they apply for jobs.


Requirements: While CompTIA recommends that you take A+ before Network+, they have never made it a requirement, and plenty of people are successful skipping to Network+ certification.

Recommendation: It is recommended for CompTIA Network+ candidates to have the following:

 CompTIA A+ certification or equivalent knowledge, though

 CompTIA A+ certification is not required.

 Have at least 9 to 12 months of work experience in IT Networking
