Building a Network Design FAQs: Cost, Training, Value
Anyone who wants to some day work as a networking professional should take this network design course as early in your career as possible. From cabling or VLAN design to subnetting and WAP, this course lays the foundation for mastery of all the component pieces of a good network.
No, this course is pretty intentionally designed not to relate to any particular certification. Certifications depend on a lot of information, some of it not related to actually doing a job. This course covers hands-on skills in designing and building a network, not answering questions about one.
Certifications can help define and advance a career in the IT industry, and if you decide to pursue one after earning the certification, you should look to CompTIA's IT Fundamentals or Network+. The Network+ in particular covers information about internetworking and how to maximize network operations.
You should take this training so that you thoroughly understand how a network functions and what goes into designing superior ones. You should take this course if you want a career working with networks so that you always have great design fundamentals to fall back on.
