Welcome to the Network Fundamentals Skills Course & Certification Test
What underlines all Information Technology activities? Networks, of course. So, a strong foundation of basic networking concepts is critical to a successful career in IT. A computer network is a collection of computer systems and other computer hardware devices that are connected through communication channels which facilitate resource sharing among an array of users. Networks are characterized based on different characteristics, for example: LANs and WANs. Strong comprehension of hardware and protocols used in creating networks is essential to future success, as well as a grasp on concepts such as: routing basics, IP addresses, and the 2 reference models, OSI and TCP/IP. In order to take a structured, layered approach to IT networking, one must first understand subnetting, troubleshooting, the tools used in network monitoring, analyzing network traffic and examining switch/ router configurations. Once you possess knowledge on basic network functions, standards, and protocols, as the Network Fundamentals Skill Certification test prepares you for, you will be ready to tackle advanced networking issues. Completion of the Network Fundamentals Skill Certification course should be supplemented with further knowledge in the topics of: Subnetting, TCP/IP and OSI.
