Overview

On this accelerated 6-day CompTIA Network Infrastructure Professional (CNIP) course, you'll get the knowledge and skills to build, maintain, troubleshoot and support server hardware and software technologies. You'll also learn to configure, manage and troubleshoot common wired and wireless networks.

Immersing you in the curriculum through our unique Lecture | Lab | Review learning methodology, you'll get a minimum of 12 hours quality training per day. Combining theory and practice from official CompTIA curricula, your expert instructor will take you through the following courses:

  • Network+
  • Server+

Train at twice the speed on this official CompTIA combined course

Firebrand is an Authorised CompTIA Platinum Partner. This means you'll get access to experienced instructors and up-to-date course material, officially approved by CompTIA.

During the course, you'll prepare for and sit the following CompTIA Network+ and Server+ exams, covered by your Certification Guarantee.

  • Exam N10-006
  • Exam SK0-003

Upon successful completion of all exams, you will achieve the Network+ and Server+ credentials as well as the aligned CNIP Stackable Certification - proving your skills as a Network Infrastructure Professional.

Seven reasons why you should sit your CNIP course with Firebrand Training

  1. You'll be CNIP certified in just 6 days. With us, you’ll be CNIP trained in record time
  2. Our CNIP course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  3. Pass CNIP first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  4. You’ll learn more CNIP. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
  5. You’ll learn CNIP faster. Chances are, you’ll have a different learning style to those around you. We combine visual, auditory and tactile styles to deliver the material in a way that ensures you will learn faster and more easily
  6. You’ll be studying CNIP with the best. We’ve been named in Training Industry’s “Top 20 IT Training Companies of the Year” every year since 2010. As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified 125,505 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business
  7. You'll do more than study CNIP courseware. We use practical exercises to make sure you can apply your new knowledge to the work environment. Our instructors use demonstrations and real-world experience to keep the day interesting and engaging

Benefits

Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.

Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.

Firebrand Training provides instruction to meet every learning need:

  • Intensive group instruction
  • One-on-one instruction attention
  • Hands-on labs
  • Lab partner and group exercises
  • Question and answer drills
  • Independent study

This information has been provided as a helpful tool for candidates considering training. Courses that include certification come with a certification guarantee. Pass first time or train again for free (just pay for accommodation and exams on your return). We do not make any guarantees about personal successes or benefits of obtaining certification. Benefits of certification determined through studies do not guarantee any particular personal successes.
