In the event that you fail your first attempt at passing the Network+ examination, CompTIA's retake policies are:

  1. CompTIA does not require a waiting period between the first and second attempt to pass such examination. However, if you need a third or subsequent attempt to pass the examination, you shall be required to wait for a period of at least fourteen calendar days from the date of your last attempt before you can retake the exam.
  2. If a candidate has passed an exam, he/she cannot take it again without prior consent from CompTIA.
  3. A test result found to be in violation of the retake policy will not be processed, which will result in no credit awarded for the test taken. Repeat violators will be banned from participation in the CompTIA Certification Program.
  4. Candidates must pay the exam price each time they attempt the exam. CompTIA does not offer free re-tests or discounts on retakes.

CompTIA Network+ certification expires after three years from the date of issue, after which the certification holders will need to renew their certification via CompTIA's Continuing Education Program.

Customer Review

I had the opportunity to review one of the CompTIA Network courses offered by uCertify and I think it is a very complete network course. Someone taking this course will learn about network basics, overall standards and best practices, especially extended on security topics. I particularly enjoyed the easy to use interface, where you can track your progress in a very intuitive way through test simulations. In my opinion, there is a room for improvement as there is a lack of videos and labs on more advanced topics. Anyway, the basic lessons are fully covered with labs, which are very helpful to consolidate the theory part. Thanks for this opportunity, keep on the track! If you are planning to take N10-007 exam then don’t wait and enroll in the latest released N10-007 complete course offered at uCertify. The course will guide you to the path of exam success.

The uCertify CompTIA Network+ course was detailed and the each important topics were explained in detailed. Thanks to uCertify for facilitating a seamless learning experience.

After reviewing the CompTIA Network+ course provided by uCertify for the past couple of weeks, I am delighted to say that the course is well presented and will be a great aid in helping you achieve your goals. Overall I would recommend the uCeritfy Network+ course to anyone serious about passing the exam or is looking to improve their knowledge and move on to bigger and better things.
