With great pleasure, I’m pleased to announce the latest offering from Chip Reaves at Bigger Brains. It was an honor to team with Reaves and Wilson on this effort to produce a “Video Book”( off-the-shelf eLearning content) on the CompTIA Network+ Exam. The new course includes 62 video training modules and over 9 hours of total content.

The new course is available from top IT service firms who subscribe to Bigger Brains' "BiggerMSP" training portal program at It's also available individually through and other online training marketplaces.
