I have a Bachelor's in Computer and Information Technology (2020) from Dixie State University. There isn't much to say apart from my nearly 4 years in university prepared me to obtain my certifications and gain valuable hands-on expererience. I enjoyed my time, but my certifications meant a lot more in the job market than my degree.
*I do not endorse Dixie State University or it's new proposed title of Utah Tech University. The name change and resistance to community feedback has lost my alumni support. Look elsewhere for higher education. The name "Dixie State University" did not in any way hinder me from getting a job.

CompTIA Network+ N10-007 has been updated and reorganized to address the current networking technologies with expanded coverage of several domains by adding critical security concepts to helping networking professionals work with security practitioners, key cloud computing best practices and typical service models, coverage of newer hardware and virtualization techniques, and concepts to give individuals the combination of skills to keep the network resilient.
