Certified Wireless Network Administrator - CWNA

Certified Wireless Network Administrator


The practical goal

To have staff members capable of installing, activating and fixing (handling) wireless networks of all kinds.

Through this course, you can build the skills you need to work in sectors that use wireless networks and as a result, standing out in most markets of networks and information technology.

This course forms the theoretical and practical basis for any IT or communications engineer preparing to have a job at companies that rely on wireless networks in their infrastructure, and basis for any engineer from another branch seeking to specialize by further studying technology that has become a binding reality in most sectors.


Course summary

The course offers a curriculum that represents an entry-level gateway to wireless networking job positions for beginners and a professional path to information technology. It is, also, the next step in the CCNA R&S course to complete the practical capacity of both wired and wireless networks. The course curriculum consists of 60 hours spread over 30 sessions of two-hour duration. The sessions are divided into two sections:

The first section is 10 asynchronous sessions that contain the theoretical part of the curriculum, and the student finds these sessions on Moodle for self study where discussions are held with the instructor during the second section of the sessions. The second section of the sessions is 20 synchronous sessions that contain practical topics which will be implemented on simulation programs designated for this purpose, in addition to solving a set of previous exam questions about theoretical ideas related to the topic of the session.

Through both the recorded sessions and the synchronous sessions, the student gets all the information given within the CWNP courses as well as an additional exam practice regarding exam questions and how they are set.
