Courses

Network + 100 hours

Network + builds on existing user-level knowledge and experience with personal computer operating systems and networks to present fundamental skills and concepts that students will use on the job in any type of networking career. This course is designed to provide network technicians with the foundation-level skills they need to install, operate, manage, maintain, and troubleshoot a corporate network. This course will help prepare students for the CompTIA Network+ N10-007 certification exam. CompTIA recommends students have CompTIA A+ certification or equivalent experience prior to attempting the N10-007 exam. As in the A+ Comprehensive course, students gain critical hands-on experience through a series of Performance-Based Exam Prep Simulations. These simulations are a mixture of Operating System and Application Training Demonstrations, Interactive Graphic Windows Exercises, Interactive Command-Line Windows Exercises, and Interactive Configuration and Identification Exercises. The simulations are blended into the training, to provide reinforcement of topics, as well as to provide the critical “hands-on” learning experience necessary to gain the competency.

Completion

  • Manage and troubleshoot a basic network infrastructure, using common ports and networking protocols
  • Understand and apply networking technologies and basic network design principles
  • Install, configure and differentiate between common network devices
  • Install and manage wired and wireless networks, adhering to standards and using modern testing tools
  • Identify and troubleshoot performance and connectivity issues

Security + 100 hours

  • No other certification that assesses baseline cybersecurity skills has performance-based questions on the exam. Security+ emphasizes hands-on practical skills, ensuring the security professional is better prepared to problem solve a wider variety of issues.
  • More choose Security+ for DoD 8570 compliance than any other certification.
  • Security+ focuses on the latest trends and techniques in risk management, risk mitigation, threat management, and intrusion detection.
  • The new Security+ certification covers the Junior IT Auditor/Penetration Tester job role, in addition to the previous job roles for Systems Administrator, Network Administrator, and Security Administrator.

Security+ is the primary course students will need in order to gain the skills and knowledge required to gain Security+ Certification. This course is targeted toward the information technology (IT) professional who has networking and administrative skills in Windows-based Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) networks and familiarity with other operating systems, such as Mac OS X, Unix, or Linux, and who wants to further a career in IT by acquiring a foundational knowledge of security topics. In this course, students will build on knowledge and experience with security fundamentals, networks, and organizational security as they acquire the specific skills required to implement basic security services on any type of computer network. This course also provides the broad-based knowledge necessary to prepare for further study in specialized security fields. Course Prepares Student for CompTIA Exam: SYO-501
