Students can test their progress periodically using the supplied flash cards and educational games; there are also numerous practical examples in each section that help learners understand how to apply the techniques being demonstrated. End of unit tests ensure students have fully grasped each concept before moving on to the next task. Students can also discuss topics with their peers using the e-Careers social networking facilities, adding another valuable learning tool by which to add to their knowledge.
Key learning points
Comprised of eight separate courses, the CompTIA IT certification Training bundle contains everything an IT professional needs to get started in the modern computing environment. From basic computer hardware familiarisation, to system security to Cloud technologies, this bundle has something for everyone.
The bundle opens with the CompTIA Cloud overview, looking at:
- The business value offered by Cloud services.
- How to avoid common pitfalls and deliver a successful Cloud deployment.
- The affect that Cloud services have on IT service management (ITSM).
- The risks and consequences attached to Cloud computing and how to mitigate them.
Course focus then shifts to mobile computing, a key aspect of the modern distributed workforce. CompTIA Mobility+ Modules cover many topics including:
- Over the air technologies like WiFi and 3G/4G networking.
- Building effective wireless networks.
- Using Mobile Device Management (MDM) tools to simplify the administrative process for smartphones and tablets.
- Boosting mobile device security to prevent network breaches and data loss.
- Troubleshooting mobile device issues.
Wireless and mobility networking is complemented by the Network+ course which deals with the infrastructure to support wireless networking:
- Physical network cable types and the situations in which they would be deployed.
- Building LANs and WANs and the correct topology to use for a specific networking context.
- How to monitor and manage network hardware and traffic to ensure a consistently high performance for service users.
- The basic principles of network security, using built-in features to prevent unauthorised access and data theft.
With cybercrime on the rise, students also need to be well-versed in IT security. The CompTIA Security+ will help them understand:
- Basic design considerations when first building a secure network.
- Identifying and satisfying compliance needs for data and network security.
- Familiarisation of common network threats and vulnerabilities and how they can be blocked.
- The three levels of security considerations – application, data and host – and how each is to be protected.
- How user accounts and security groups can limit data access and raise security standards.
- The use of encryption to protect data, even if it is intercepted by a third party.
Students can go even deeper with the CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP) course which looks at managing and mitigating security risks through user education, organisational change and policy frameworks:
- Specifying security requirements and selecting products to match.
- Deep dive into cryptographic methods and how they applied within the corporate environment.
- Implementing firewalls and VPNs to protect network data as it passes through the corporate network.
- Responding to, and investigating security breaches.
Finally, the Linux+ course introduces students to some of the more popular Linux distributions and how they are deployed in the corporate environment:
- How to configure hardware, manage software and define file access permissions and sharing.
- Administering desktop PCs running Linux.
- Using scripts to automate common administrative tasks.
- Boosting security within a Linux environment.
