TARGET AUDIENCE OF CWNA
As part of the CWNP training and certification program, the CWNA
up where other popular networking certification program leaves
Bringing together the two fascinating worlds of wired and wireless
could be the main benefits of CWNA training, because wireless networks
culmination of RF and networking technologies.
Setting up, Configuring and Maintaining

should be interested in CWNA?
1. New to wireless
If youíve been working on networks Ė LANs, MANs, WANs, etc-but not yet
course on wireless, then this certification exam is great
introduction into wireless LAN technology. Though wireless is an
extension of the wired network in the access layer of the network,
wireless LAN is a field of study on it own, do not burn your fingers
assuming they are same.
2. Wireless Experts
Even if youíre experienced in wireless networking already, there
substantial amount of
topics covered towards the award of CWNA certification. such that you
will marvel from
the first day about how much you donít know. If youíve been working with

years, be careful you donít assume that you know all there is to know
about them. It is
external confirmation that you have the ability to get the job done
right. It is a validation and recognition of what you have by a
credible third party and leader in the wireless world.
3. RF Experienced
Having worked with RF for years elsewhere and moved into the networking
knowledge and experience is right on the track with the evolution of
technology, but you have probably never measured your knowledge of
technologies by taking the course leading to the ultimate award of
recognition as CWNA.
I mean within the field of study like Electrical Electronic
Metrology, Physics and Electronics, Satellite Communications, and
others that typically provides a solid background in RF fundamentals.
Many people have crossed over from careers in radio frequency (RF) to
careers Information Technology) IT, but never reamed where the two some
field of study might meet. Wireless LAN technology is the meeting point.
4. New to networking
Finally, if you are stepping into the networking world for the first
time, please make sure you have a basic understanding of networking concepts.
and then jump right in, for this we are going to offer an introduction
into essentials of networking as part of the course.
Wireless LAN industry is growing at a phenomenal rate such that it
seems to be evolving in a similar fashion to the networking industry as
a whole starting with early adopters using whatever technology
available. The market has moved into a rapid growth stage, for which
popular standards are providing the catalyst.
5. The CWNA PW0-104 certification is also appropriate for:

WHY BECOME A CWNA?
CWNP's certification program, not unlike
those of Cisco, Novell and Microsoft etc, is one that gives networking
professionals a standardized set of measurable wireless LAN skills and
employers a standard level of wireless LAN expertise to require of their
Passing the CWNA exams proves youíve achieved a certain of knowledge
about wireless networking where Cisco and Microsoft certifications will
