CompTIA On-Demand Learner Profiles
CompTIA On-Demand is a self-study training solution that was designed for two types of learners. First, CompTIA On-Demand is a great fit for individuals with considerable IT experience who don't need a traditional 5-day class to prepare for a CompTIA exam. They can pick and choose topics to make the most effective use of their time. Second, CompTIA On-Demand is perfect for highly-motivated individuals who are new to a technology and need to space their learning over a period of weeks or months. These learners can take their time and repeat sections as needed until they master the new concepts.

About CompTIA On-Demand
Our CompTIA On-Demand classes are self-study courses with 30 to 40 hours of content. They include hours of videos, hands-on labs using the actual software, and knowledge checks that mirror the content found in the traditional live instructor-led version of this course. Those features are all part of the standard CompTIA On-Demand training. But don't settle for any other self-study class! Check out the "ONLC Extras" that you get when purchasing this course from us.

COURSE DETAILS

Overview
This self-study CompTIA® Network+® class (equivalent to our 5-day CompTIA® Network+® instructor-led course) builds on your existing user-level knowledge and experience with personal computer operating systems and networks to present the fundamental skills and concepts that you will need to use on the job in any type of networking career. If you are pursuing a CompTIA technical certification path, the CompTIA® A+® certification is an excellent first step to take before preparing for the CompTIA Network+ certification.

The CompTIA® Network+® (Exam N10-006) course can benefit you in two ways. It can assist you if you are preparing to take the CompTIA Network+ examination (Exam N10-006). Also, if your job duties include network troubleshooting, installation, or maintenance, or if you are preparing for any type of network-related career, it provides the background knowledge and skills you will require to be successful.

Exam Difficulty Note
With the recent update to the Network+ Exam, the exam has had a significant increase in difficulty. We have been in conversations with CompTIA regarding the new low pass rates and they recognize that there is an issue. Taking this class and successfully completing the Network+ practice exams will NOT GUARANTEE that you will will pass this test. We highly recommend that you also purchase the latest version of a Complete Network+ Study Guide set and study the Network+ exam objectives.

Retaking an Exam
Retake exams are at your own cost. A voucher is good for a single exam attempt. If you do not pass, you will need to purchase another voucher to retake that exam. ONLC does not provide free "retake vouchers." Therefore, be sure to do the necessary preparation before scheduling your exam.

Exam Prep Software
All of our CompTIA classes include access to web-based practice exams. CompTIA certification exams are very rigorous and challenging. By studying after the class and using these practice exams, you will greatly improve your chances of passing the actual certification exam the first time. Exam prep software is included with all CompTIA classes delivered by ONLC Training Centers.
