A Helpdesk certification provides a strong base for a long career in IT. This program is comprised of two courses – A+ and Network+ – to prepare you to start a career as an IT Helpdesk Administrator.

Network + Certification validates that you have the knowledge needed to use and maintain a wide range of networking technologies and have proficiency in networking administration and support.

This Helpdesk Admin program provides you with the knowledge to sit for three international certification exams.
