Network+ 2009 Certification
CompTIA’s newest Network+ release will bring your technology skills up to date. Strong and significant changes have occurred in technology since the last Network+ release. TCP IP V6, wireless networking and security issues are just the tip of the iceberg. We are now using Gigabit transfer rates and Network+ has expanded the routing and switching segments to really address these concepts; prior version were light to say the least. Network+ 2009 explores the remote desktop support and virtualization concepts along with looking more deeply into LAN, WAN and Wireless troubleshooting.
Network+ is a starting point for most network engineering job roles. After all it is the network that is the foundation system on which everything else is built. Network+ is a perfect prerequisite to any of the MCITP areas and a must for anyone considering CCNA.
So what does a Network+ Certified Engineer do? Responsibilities include management and operation of network infrastructure, maintaining, troubleshooting, and installing a network and network components. You could also be responsible for using various monitoring and network performance tools and designing network segments and creating security policies for the infrastructure. Job roles such as network administrators, network technicians, network installers, help desk technicians, and IT cable installers all should have the network knowledge of a Network+ Certified Engineer.
The industry reports tout jobs available for IT professionals. Keeping your credentials current is definitely an important criterion in this job market, whether you are securing a job you have or going to be hitting the job market you will be better prepared for what is ahead with updated and refreshed skills.
