Enterprise Wireless Solutions Administrator

Associated Certification: Certified Wireless Solutions Administrator (CWSA)

Pearson VUE Certification Exam Number CWSA-101

Course Summary

Duration: 4 days, Classroom or Virtual Live Online

Prerequisites: Good to have but not required: Basic networking knowledge, including OSI model and IP subnetting

Introduction

While no wireless training can cover every single wireless technology in use today, it is important for wireless professionals to grasp the most frequently used wireless solutions in organizations. The Enterprise Wireless Solutions Administration course and associated certification exam will ensure candidates know several common wireless solutions and prove their knowledge through certification. The Certified Wireless Solutions Administrator (CWSA) certification is built upon two decades of historic quality in WLAN (802.11) training and certifications and begins the extension of CWNP offerings into the non-802.11 wireless technologies.

When one passes the CWSA exam, they earn the CWSA certification and credit towards the CWSE certification should they choose to pursue it. The Certified Wireless Solutions Administrator (CWSA) implements, administers and troubleshoots technologies that heavily rely upon, or directly integrate with, wireless systems in enterprise, government, and manufacturing environments. This individual is able to install, customize, and coordinate appropriate solutions to meet an organizationís requirements and constraints.
