Duration: 
5 days
Codes: 
WIFUND

Overview

This course looks at the fundamentals required in the planning, implementation and operation of a Cisco Wireless LAN network. This course is designed to help provide students with the knowledge and hands on practice required to enable them to design, install, configure, monitor and conduct the basic troubleshooting tasks of a Cisco WLAN in an SMB or Enterprise installations. As this is associate level course the advanced features of the Cisco WLAN networks solutions will not be covered in depth.

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.

Submit an enquiry from any page on this site, and let us know you are interested in the requirements box, or simply mention it when we contact you.
