This course will prepare you to take and pass the CompTIA Network+ test. The course consists of videos, lessons, labs, short exams and a final. All labs, exams and the final are provided in LabSim. Please note the table above for required due dates for the LabSim sections labs and exams. All due times are end of day on the day shown. If you complete the first group before the mid-semester deadline, you can continue to work on the following sections. You may repeat the labs and exams as many times as you desire, but must have at least an 80% score to receive credit. In other words, if you score 80% or above you will get points toward your grade. The Final test (single attempt, two hour time limit) in LabSim (Certification Tab) will become available on August 12th and must be taken no later than 6:00pm on August 13th. Please contact me if you have any questions.
There is a Pass/Fail MeasureUp test that must be completed by August 10. The result of the test (your score) will not affect your grade. Not taking the test will result in a 10 point deduction from your final grade. A voucher is required for this test and will be available at the CSN testing rooms. If you do not live in Clark County you will need to provide proof or location and a voucher code will be sent to you. You will need to find a testing center to use the voucher. The testing center may charge an additional fee.
The course objectives are the CompTIA objectives for the current Network+ certification exam. While one outcome for the class is to be able to meet the objectives provided by CompTIA, certification is the main goal. It is expected that students passing the class will be able to take and pass the appropriate certification test, the probability being related to the final grade received.
