The Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) has announced plans to update its ComptTIA+ Network certification. The certification was last updated in 2005.

“Expansion and growth of wireless networks in the corporate environment has generated administrative and security challenges on the network. The updated exam will be more reflective of current networking technologies,” said Michael Robie, vice president, skills development, CompTIA.

CompTIA conducted a survey of more than 3,500 IT managers earlier this year. Two thirds of them said that their companies were seeking candidates with general networking and network infrastructure skills.

“CompTIA Network+ certified professionals have the knowledge and skills necessary to manage and maintain basic network infrastructure. This certification is a logical next step for any IT professional looking to add to their arsenal of career-enhancing skills," said Robie.

Businesses across a wide range of industry sectors use the certification as a skills benchmark when considering candidates for jobs that require network operations. The certification update reflects the association's practice of keeping the certification content up to date and making sure it covers the skills implied in the latest technological breakthroughs.

IT professionals who have the CompTIA Network+ certification work in a wide spectre of IT jobs, from network technicians and administrators to IT cable installers.

The updated CompTIA+ Network certification exam will be available worldwide in the first quarter of 2009. The current version is already available to all interested candidates across the globe.
