Email

Our new CompTIA Network+ N10-008 Practice Lab is here. In this blog we will identify the changes between Network+ N10-007 and N10-008. In, addition we will also look at whether you should be upgrading your certification to the latest standard.

Firstly, let's look at the main reasons why you should consider the Network+ qualification;

  • It's a stepping stone to furthering a career in IT
  • A number of professionals in the sector consider Network+ an industry benchmark of competency
  • It's a vendor neutral certification
  • You may have completed your CompTIA A+ certification and you're looking to take the next step on the CompTIA certification pathway

Secondly, we begin to consider the changes between N10-007 and the new Network+ N10-008.

  • The learning outcomes and objectives have been refreshed to align with the latest technologies that have evolved in the industry since the release of N10-007.
  • A greater focus on practical application using the latest devices.
  • Revised and up-to-date technical terminology.

The biggest changes in the new version cover two critical technologies;

  • Cyber Security – with the level of cyber security risks increasing to $945 billion in 2020, CompTIA has revised the new version to provide a greater focus on cyber security. Driven in part by the growing levels of risk and remote working ongoing in the new world.
  • Cloud – the growth of cloud has rocketed in recent years with a number of vendors now offering solutions across various areas that operate in the cloud. The latest version of Network+ will allow you to learn more about the cloud in a vendor neutral way.

The latest version helps refresh and advance your skills in two increasingly important areas of the industry irrespective of vertical.
