In this entry-level networking skills training, Keith Barker prepares learners to take the TCP/IP IPv4 portion of the Core 220-1001 exam, which is one of two exams required to earn the CompTIA A+ certification.
TCP/IP is the bedrock of networking. Its discovery was the Big Bang of the internet, and it remains the lifeblood of every network. You should have a good handle on this topic before doing anything else as an IT professional.
After finishing this TCP/IP training, you'll know how to use fundamental IPv4 routing. You’ll also learn about network routers, default gateways, default routes, and static routes. Gain an understanding of dynamic routing protocols, such as RIP and OSPF.
For anyone who manages network administrators, this networking training can be used for Core 220-1001 exam prep, onboarding new network administrators, individual or team training plans, or as a networking reference resource.
TCP/IP IPv4: What You Need to Know
For any network administrator using this training for exam preparation, our CompTIA A+ course maps to the networking Core 220-1001 exam objectives and covers topics such as:
- Understanding the fundamentals of IPv4 routing
- Configuring and verifying IPv4
- Subnetting on IPv4
- Using DHCP for network optimization
- Troubleshooting IPv4 on Windows networks
- Configuring Layer 3 IPv4 addresses
Who Should Take TCP/IP IPv4 Training?
This TCP/IP IPv4 training is considered foundational networking training, which means it was designed for network technicians and junior network administrators. This TCP/IP IPv4 skills course is valuable for new IT professionals with at least a year of experience with network infrastructure and experienced network administrators looking to refresh their networking skills.
New or aspiring network administrators. If you’re a new network administrator, mastery of IPv4 will be central to your career developing and maintaining networks. IPv4 is being phased out, but it’s being phased out very, very slowly. And network administrators who know and understand IPv4 will be the masters capable of transitioning to IPv6 when the time comes — with this training, you can be that master.
Experienced network administrators. If you’re a network administrator with several years of experience, you might think that IPv4 expertise won’t be needed since we’re all transitioning to IPv6. But that transition process promises to be a very long one -- and with that in mind, you should get this training. Training in the TCP/IP IPv4 protocols, functions and processes will ensure you can manage IPv4 networks and systems, and even be a part of the transition to IPv6 if and when your company approaches that transition.
