CompTIA Convergence Technologies Professional (CTP+) certification validates professional-level knowledge and skills to sell and service components of data, voice and multimedia convergence technologies.
The CompTIA® CTP+ course builds on your existing foundational information and skills in networking and telephony to assist you in preparing for the CompTIA CTP+ certification exam. If you are pursuing a CompTIA technical certification path, the CompTIA Network+ certification is an excellent first step to take before preparing for the CompTIA CTP+ certification.
Course Objective: You will identify and describe CTP+ technologies and the tools used to achieve the convergence of voice, video, and data. You will learn information and skills that will be necessary as you prepare for the CompTIA CTP+ certification examination (exam number CN0-201).
Target Student: This course is targeted toward individuals interested in the technologies and service of equipment associated with convergence technologies, delivering data, telephony, and multimedia over IP networks. This course is also targeted to individuals who are interested in certifying vendor-neutral skills focused on the service and support of convergence technologies.
Prerequisites: It is recommended that the student is CompTIA Network+ certified and has 18 to 24 months of work experience in areas that include data networking, VoIP, and other convergence related technologies.
Delivery Method: Instructor led, group-paced, classroom-delivery learning model with structured hands-on activities.
