Overview

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.

Certifications

This course is part of the following Certifications:

Cisco Certified Network Associate Wireless (CCNA Wireless)

Audience

This course is designed for individuals who are involved in the technical management of Cisco wireless platforms and solutions, which involves installing, configuring, operating and troubleshooting. In this course, the target audience will be refereed to generically as technicians.

This audience includes: Network engineers Network administrators Network managers system engineers

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.
