The Implementing Cisco Wireless Network Fundamentals (CI-WIFUND) is a 5 day ILT course, designed to help students prepare for the CCNA-Wireless certification, an associate level certification specializing in the wireless field. The curriculum will prepare wireless network associate for the use, positioning, planning, implementation and operation of Cisco WLAN networks.
The aim of this course is to provide students with information and practice activities to prepare them to help design, install, configure, monitor and conduct basic troubleshooting tasks of a Cisco WLAN in SMB and Enterprise installations. As an associate level, the course aims at providing entry level information, and will not specialize in any of the advanced features of the Cisco WLAN networks solutions.
Who should attend
This course is relevant for individuals pursuing Wireless Network Administrator roles within SMB or Enterprise IT organizations, working towards the CCNA Wireless certification. These individuals will have a foundational level knowledge of routing and switching and this certification validates their skills and knowledge as an associate level wireless network engineer.
This course is part of the following Certifications:
Cisco Certified Network Associate Wireless (CCNA Wireless)
