CompTIA Network+ Prerequisites

It is required for candidates to have achieved the CompTIA A+ certification and to have some networking experience.

CompTIA is a non-profit association that provides professional training courses of differing difficulty levels. Broadly, these certifications are designed to allow delegates to be able to engage with a range of IT software, and allow entry into, or advancement within, the IT industry. To find out more about CompTIA, visit our CompTIA topic page.
This course is valid for three years from the day you pass the exam. It can be taken once again to renew the qualification at the end of the three year period, or you can renew your certification with the CompTIA Continuing Education (CE) Program. The CE Program works on a point-based system, and so at least 30 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) need to be collected within three years to renew your CompTIA Network+ qualification.
We offer CompTIA Network+ training courses in locations all over the UK, as well as abroad. Here at The Knowledge Academy, we make it easy to find a training venue near you!
During four days of classroom based training, delegates will be provided with a course manual, an experienced trainer, refreshments, and a certificate.
