Intro to Networking FAQs: Cost, Training, Value
This course is great for students considering a career in IT, as well as non-IT professionals who just need to understand computer networks. If you need a foundational understanding of how computers actually access files, swap information and get you online, this is the right course for you.
No, although this course is a great source of foundational knowledge about computer networking, it's not designed to help anyone pass a specific certifying exam. Certifications prefer it when you know one piece of technology or vendor really well, but this course focuses on broad knowledge and understanding.
If this introductory networking course gets you curious about the IT field, consider the IT Fundamentals+ from CompTIA – it's specifically designed to help you see if IT is a good fit for you. Or if you know you want to get started in IT, consider Network+ – also from CompTIA.
You should take this introductory networking course because computer networks are everywhere in the modern era. From the music we listen to, the social media sites we visit, the video games we play and movies we watch, they're only possible because of networks - and this course explains how they work.
