  • No experience is necessary, just a desire to learn.


Learn IPv4 Subnetting and working with Binary

For those of you working towards your certifications (CompTIA A+ and NET+ for instance), this course will equip you with knowledge in IP addressing and binary. I have taught the bootcamps for the A+ and NET+ certifications and I understand that the boot camps are meant to cram a lot of information in a short amount of time. These courses are great for those that have worked in the field for 6-9 months and have some understanding technology. But these courses do not get into detail on binary conversion and in subnetting, and the student is left to do extra research and studying.

This course will cover in some detail the areas that students have had the most questions; those questions have been in the areas of IP subnetting and working with binary numbers.

This course will go over the differences between public and private IP addressing, as well as network address translation and port address translation.

This course will describe IPv4 subnetting, including classless and classful IP addressing, as well as Variable Length Subnet Mask.

This course will also introduce you to the various organizations that govern IP address and policies.

Computers see everything in binary, or 1s and 0s

So, to understand IP v4 and v6 addressing, it’s helpful to understand binary and hexadecimal and being able to convert them back and forth. So, we will go over the process of converting binary to decimal as well as converting hex to decimal, and vice versa.

Who this course is for:

  • Anyone entering the field of computers and networking
  • Anyone looking for supplemental material for A+ and Network+ courses
