Audience

The intended audience for this course includes people working in entry-level Internet and e-commerce careers such as maintenance of Internet intranet and extranet infrastructure and services or the development of Web related content and applications. The audience may also include people working in non-technical Internet areas such as the marketing of Internet equipment or services or using the Internet extensively in their day-to-day work. A+ and Network+ certification would be helpful but not required prior to this curriculum. Learners are expected to be experienced end users with only novice to moderate level of experience in the infrastructure and configuration of internetworks and Web. This course will help candidates prepare for CompTIA exam IK0-002.
