This foundational networking course prepares learners to recognize the personnel, technologies and tools that go into making sure that computers, devices and data flow between one another on a network.
This Intro to Networking training is not about attending meetings, going to business lunches and handing out business cards. This is about a much more important skill: making the internet work. The complex system of wires, computers, programs, routers and switches that bring you your email, cat videos and instantaneous communication with team members around the globe doesn't work on its own. Networking is understanding how a machine can "talk" with other machines — and how to improve, accelerate and secure that "talking". With this training, you'll understand the fundamentals of what goes into contemporary, modern networks and what they're capable of — and who can help make sure your organization has access to them.
After finishing this CBT Nuggets training, you'll know how to recognize the personnel, technologies and tools that go into making sure that computers, devices and data flow between one another on a network.
For managers, this CBT Nuggets training can be used to onboard new IT professionals, curated into individual or team training plans, or as a CBT Nuggets reference resource.
