The CompTIA Network+ Recertification Exam offers an efficient option for renewing active, qualifying CompTIA Network+ CE Certifications. The Recertification Exam bridges the competencies measured by the N10-005 version of the CompTIA Network+ certification exam and the current N10-006 exam. In addition to validating objectives new to the N10-006 exam, the Network+ Recertification Exam also assesses a subset of the knowledge and skills rated by industry experts as being the most relevant for on-the-job performance.
Am I eligible?
The current CompTIA Network+ Recertification Exam, RC0-N06, is available to anyone who earned their certification by passing the Network+ N10-005 exam (or earlier), and has maintained an active Network+ CE certification. Good-for-life certifications are not available for renewal.
