TCP/IP Networking Course Overview

The TCP/IP Networking course introduces the delegate to the main concepts of TCP/IP. It describes the structure of the TCP/IP Protocol suite and the functions and Protocols at each layer.

The delegate will learn and acquire skills as follows:

  • The four layers of the TCP/IP Protocol suite and the functions of each layer
  • Identify the needs of, and the purpose of each of the protocols at each layer
  • The common applications used with TCP/IP
  • Routing
  • Sub-netting an IP Address range
  • The common network commands to troubleshoot a TCP/IP Network
  • TCP/IP tracing at all levels, and diagnosing of network problems

Who will the Course Benefit?

Anyone who needs to design and implement a small TCP/IP Network. The TCP/IP Networking course is also suitable for delegates who need an understanding of TCP/IP and are required to maintain a network.

Course Objectives

To provide the skills necessary for the delegate to design, build and test a small TCP/IP Network, comprising of three subnetworks and two routers. The delegate will learn how to trace and rectify faults on the network.


There are no formal pre-requisites, although knowledge and understanding of an operating system is essential. Having LINUX/UNIX knowledge is particularly advantageous, as the course is built around TCP/IP and LINUX/UNIX.

Course Notes

There is no practical content within this TCP/IP Networking.

Course Reviews

The trainer was very understanding and welcoming with the network TCP and IP training course.

Chris - Digital Imaging software support technic - IT

Quite a dry subject. But well presented and interesting.

Rob - Staff Software Engineer - IT

Very good hospitality and teaching methods, really happy that I chose to come on this course, thanks.

Will - Technical Engineer - IT

More Course Reviews....

The course opened my eyes to something I thought was difficult but the instructor has made it now look easy.

Michael - Principal Engineer - Manufacturing

One of the best courses I have done. Will prove to be invaluable in configuring our systems in the future.

Steve - Principal Systems Engineer - Communications

Some of the concepts were explained to me better than I've ever experienced previously by professionals in the field. No unnecessary jargons were used and the teacher was very good at portraying and explaining the course concepts. It was a very refreshing course, I have a very clear understanding of the concepts that were taught in the course. Thank you very much.
