CompTIA Server+ SK0-005 incl. Live Labs, Practice Papers and Official Exam


CompTIA Server+ is a global certification that validates the hands-on skills of IT professionals who install, manage, and troubleshoot servers in data canters as well as on-premises and hybrid environments.

CompTIA Server+ is the only certification that can ensure that IT professionals at the administrator level are able to do the job in any environment because it is the only certification not restricted to a single platform.

CompTIA Server+ now features flexible training options including self-paced learning, live online training, custom training, and labs to advance the career development of IT professionals in server administration.
