CWNP has released the newest iteration of its flagship CWNA certification curriculum
CWNP has recently released its newly updated Certified Wireless Network Administrator certification, version 108 (CWNA-108)!
In order to stay at the forefront of technology, certifications must be refreshed regularly. This is standard throughout the IT industry. The usual lifecycle is approximately 3 years. At this point information learned three years previously is considered to be out of date. We accept that the concepts remain valid, but the actual specifics need to be updated.
CWNP held a Job Task Analysis (JTA) workshop, with industry experts in attendance, at which it was decided to update a number of specifics in the CWNA curriculum (training class and certification exam).
The official Certified Wireless Network Administrator (CWNA) training class covers a multitude of topics ranging from RF Frequencies, Wireless LAN Analysis, and RF Math, to Site Surveying and Antennas. This class provides the networking professional with a solid foundation of knowledge for entering into, or advancing within, the wireless networking industry.
During their investigation into the curriculum, the JTA team established that heavier focus needed to be placed on one area specifically – that of WLAN Regulations and Standards. This is a vital area with which every wireless engineer should be heavily conversant.
Conversely, the JTA team established that a few areas no longer require quite such heavy focus: Network Architecture and Design Concepts has been reduced a little, since some of the concepts are already repeated in the Certified Wireless Design Professional (CWDP) curriculum; similarly, WLAN Troubleshooting is mentioned in every class, and receives special focus in Certified Wireless Analysis Professional (CWAP).
Moving Forward to the Future
It was decided that the level of coverage of the other knowledge areas was sufficient and should remain stable.
Overall, the JTA team determined that the focus of the new curriculum more closely matches the needs in the market at the current time.
So, as you can see, the class provides a good, solid, overall foundation for understanding how and why wireless technology works the way it does.
Who should attend?
If you are a business owner who needs ot understand how your wireless network works, an IT team manager wanting to improve your team’s skillset, or someone wanting to cross-train to get into the wireless network team – this is for you!
