    Take the Network + training delivered by the expert instructors

The network is the backbone of an IT industry. The network skills are required to administer the wired and wireless networks. The CompTIA provides Network+ Certification to validate network skills. These skills provide confidence to design, configure, manage and troubleshoot any kind of network. with the Pentagon Training, the delegates will become the successful Network Administrators.

Our Network+ course covers the in-depth knowledge of networking. The knowledge of network architecture provides an understanding of the layout of the network. Learning network security enables candidates to secure the system. The study of troubleshooting helps candidates to solve problems.

Who should take this course

The target audience for this course are:

  • Network Technician
  • Network Installer
  • Help Desk Technician
  • IT Cable Installer


There are no prerequisites required, but the prior knowledge of IT network components is recommended.


What Will You Learn

After attending this course, the delegates will be able to:

  • Identify the network theory concepts and network communications methods.
  • Define hardware components and network media.
  • Understand the types of network implementations.
  • Identify the elements of a TCP/IP network implementation.
  • Understand about data delivery methods.
  • Identify the components and infrastructure of a LAN implementation.

What's included

  Course Overview

The CompTIA Network+ Certification provides the knowledge of the network media and hardware modules. It equips candidates with the concepts such as network components, operations and LAN implementation. The candidates will get the knowledge to handle the security threats and attacks.

CompTIA Training

What is CompTIA Certification?

The full form of CompTIA is Computing Technology Industry Association. It issues certifications to the persons who complete the training provided by accredited training providers and pass the respective exam. CompTIA was created in 1982. It delivers the professional certification in over 120 countries and provided certifications to 2.2 million people. 

The CompTIA’s expansion results into the increased membership from 2050 members to more than 50,000 in 2015. It launched the Dream IT program in 2014 for girls and women in the United States who are the aspirants for the IT industry. It launched the online resource for schools in June 2015. 

Steps for achieving CompTIA certification:

  • The first step is to enrol into the levels of CompTIA Certification. These levels are:
    • A+ Level: The candidates who want to start a career by recognising the IT infrastructure should attend Foundation course.
    • Security+ Level: This level provides the skills about risk identification and resolution.
    • Network+ Level: Get the expertise level networking skills in this level.
  • After selecting one of the levels, the delegates can enrol into courses by one of the delivery methods such as online training, instructor-led and self-study training.
  • The candidates have to book for the required exam.

What is IT Security?

The Information Technology’s security is the protection of digital information and IT resources from Internal, external and malicious threats. The protection mechanism includes threat detection and prevention by using the security policies, software tools and IT services. There are two types of security. One is data information security and second is computer security.

The need of Security:

  • The security is needed to defend against the attackers and hackers.
  • The essential information should not be accessed by the unauthorised persons.

Various kinds of attacks:

Without the proper security, the network may subject to attack. There are two types of attacks:

  • Passive attacks: These attacks are executed just to monitor the information.
  • Active attacks: These attacks alter the data intentionally to destroy the data of a system or network.

The software and network system is vulnerable to the following types of attacks:

  • Denial-of-Service attack: It hinders the system performance by not permitting the authorised users to use the assets.
  • Sniffer attack: These attacks can attack the system by using the sniffer software which helps them to read the information and analyse the network.
  • Brute-Force attack: The intruders try passwords with the hope of guessing them. They can also use keys which are generated from the passwords to guess the password.
