Cisco and Microsoft certifications are the ones you will encounter most often in selling Network+.7Selling Network+ Against Cisco8

In positioning Network+ against Cisco, there are three important points to begin with.Network+ is a certification that measures networking knowledge and skills that must be kept current through a continuing education program; Network+ is not tied to any one hardware vendors specifications.Cisco exams expire and must be retaken to remain current.

The second point is that Network+ is one of the approved options for required certification in the U.S. Military mandate (called Dept. of Defense 8570) for Information Assurance personnel.

Third, there are many large and international companies such as those listed here that actively use, recommend, or require Netork+ for their internal or channel technicians.

Government OrganizationsCorporate OrganizationsAcademic Organizations

This is a good list of organizations that have an affiliation with Network+. But you can add or substitute your own customers to this slide, where appropriate to your market.9Apple Network Consultant Recognition10

Recently, the Apple Consultants Network began accepting CompTIA Network+ certifications as a prerequisite for their mobility program.* This presents an excellent opportunity for the CompTIA community to leverage their knowledge to grow a new revenue stream by supporting the deployment and management of iOS devices. This is a recent Network+ win, which will contribute credibility when you talk with customers. The Apple Consultants Network refers to companies that sell Apple products, and services related to those products. There are certification requirements for companies that are accepted into the network, and Network+ was recently approved as one of the required certifications for companies in the mobility category of the Apple Consultants Network.Why did Apple approve Network+? Because, before the service personnel in small companies move to Apple partner training and certification programs, it is in Apples interest to help ensure that trainees have a similar foundational understanding of networking. So, they choose certifications as prerequisites for their own programand Network+ is a certification that they chose to include.
