Intro to IT Infrastructure Training FAQs: Cost, Training, Value

What will you learn in this introductory IT infrastructure training?

Take this course and you'll learn how computers, servers and networks work on a physical level. But you won't just read about how some device has to connect to some other device – you'll get a clear, visual understanding and tutorial of how all the different, physical parts of IT work together to produce the incredible effects you've seen.

Who should take this intro to IT course?

This course is excellent for two groups of people: non-IT professionals who need a good understanding of how network devices function, and students or job-seekers considering a job in IT. Learn about the actual wiring, connectors, and devices that make IT networks possible – once you do, you can do your job or find your job more easily.

Is this training in the basics of IT infrastructure associated with any certifications?

Yes, this course is associated with the ITF+ certification from CompTIA. But you don't have to plan on taking that exam to benefit from this course. In fact, one of the strengths of CompTIA certifications is their focus on broad knowledge and real-world skills, so this course is an excellent foundation for a career in or near IT.

What certification should you consider after taking this course in the fundamentals of IT infrastructure?

The IT Fundamentals+ from CompTIA is your best bet after this course. ITF+ is a foundational cert that anyone can use to show their understanding of the nature of the IT industry and how their job fits into the bigger picture. Additionally, the foundation you lay with this course could also lead to the CCNA.

Why should you take this IT infrastructure tutorial training?

Although many people see networks and recognize their importance, few people understand what's happening on a physical level. You might think that understanding what devices are connected to each other, where processing occurs, and where data actually 'resides' is too much detail, but a firm grasp of it actually makes you a better employee and technology user.
