Real-World Cabling and Devices FAQs: Cost, Training, Value
This course is perfect for students who want a job in IT. Your education will teach you a lot about theoretical subjects and abstract ideas. But this course is all about no-kidding, real-world stuff. Follow along and see work you'll do on a regular Tuesday afternoon on the job.
No, the whole point of this short course is that it isn't meant to be exam preparation or certification prep. The strength of this course is that it focuses on the hands-on knowledge and experiences that go into actually doing the job. No memorization or tests here, just real experience.
Once you finish this training in real-world cabling and devices, you'll have a lot of familiarity with the challenges that go into wiring network devices. With that sort of knowledge, the CompTIA A+ or the CompTIA Network+ are two great certifications that could help you land your first IT job.
Almost all the other training you'll ever take, even about running cables and installing devices, will be theoretical. This course is about getting first-hand experience with what you can actually expect on the job. That sort of real-world familiarity is valuable because it's what you'll really be doing at work.
