CompTIA Server+ is an international, vendor-neutral certification for individuals with 18-24 months of experience with Industry Standard Server Architecture (ISSA) technology. CompTIA Server+ certifies technical knowledge in areas such as RAID, SCSI and multiple CPUs, as well as capabilities with server issues, including disaster recovery. Although not a prerequisite, it is recommended that CompTIA Server+ candidates hold a CompTIA A+ certification. The CompTIA Server+ certification bundle covers the body of knowledge required to prepare for the SK0-002 CompTIA Server+ 2005 certification exam.

At the end of the program, the participants will be able to :

  • Understand functions, features, and components of servers
  • Understand critical server storage technologies and the functions and features of IDE and SCSI
  • Define and understand best practices for installing and configuring servers
  • Define and understand best practices for upgrading servers
  • Understand server backup and disaster recovery best practices
  • Understand best practices in maintaining servers and their environments
  • Understand server-related troubleshooting best practices

The CompTIA Server+ Certification is aimed for Service managers, technicians, systems engineers/administrators, help desk staff, service and repair professionals, system analysts and integrators, PC support specialists, network engineers/ administrators/ analysts/ architects/ managers/ specialists.

This program is 5 days of intensive training class.

It is recommended for CompTIA Server+ candidates to 18-24 months of hands-on experience in the server-technologies industry. CompTIA A+ certification prior to CompTIA Server+ is recommended, but not required.
