    CompTIA Network+ Recertification Exam Objectives Exam Number: RC0-N06

    INTRODUCTION

    The CompTIA Network+ Recertification Exam is one way for CompTIA certified professionals to keep their

    Network+ certification active. A CompTIA Network+ certification earned on or after January 1st, 2011 is valid for

    three years from the date the certification was earned. The certification must be renewed within three years in order for

    the individual to remain certified. To remain certified, individuals may:

    Re-take (and pass) the current certification exam (N10-006)

    Participate in continuing education activities

    Take (and pass) the Network+ recertification exam (RC0-N06)

    The CompTIA Network+ Recertification Exam RC0-N06 bridges the competencies measured by the

    Network+ N10-005 series and the N10-006 series. The exam (RC0-N06) blueprint includes the objectives

    new to the N10-006 series and also assesses the highest weighted competencies that appear on the exam

    (i.e., the knowledge and skills rated by SMEs as most relevant for on-the-job performance).

    NOTE: Availability of RC0-N06 is LIMITED TO THOSE who have kept their Network+ certification

    active and have not taken and passed the current N10-006 series exam.

    CompTIA Network+ is accredited by ANSI to show compliance with the ISO 17024 Standard and, as such,

    undergoes regular reviews and updates to the exam objectives. The following CompTIA Network+

    Recertification RC0-N06 exam objectives result from subject matter expert workshops and industry-wide

    survey results regarding the skills and knowledge required of an entry-level IT technical support

    professional.

    This examination blueprint includes domain weighting, test objectives, and example content. Example

    topics and concepts are included to clarify the test objectives and should not be construed as a

    comprehensive listing of all the content of this examination.

    Candidates are encouraged to use this document to guide their studies. The table below lists the domains

    measured by this examination and the extent to which they are represented. The CompTIA Network+ RC0-

    N06 exam is based on these objectives.
