As stated I have decided to attempt to achieve certification as a CWNE prior to coming back and doing the CCIE Wireless Path.
For those who aren’t familiar with the CWNE Certification, this post is to detail the path required to achieve CWNE Certification.
The CWNE consists of 4 exams and after passing each of these exams you need to apply to be granted CWNE Certification.
In order to apply you need to have the following:
- A minimum of three years of verifiable, documented, full-time professional work experience related to enterprise Wi-Fi networks
- Three endorsement forms from people familiar with your enterprise Wi-Fi work history are required.
- Documented activities according to the following schedule:
- Project documentation
- IT certifications
- Two (2) current, valid networking certifications from non-CWNP certification providers in any of the topics below
The four exams that you need to pass are:
- CWNA – Certified Wireless Network Administrator
- CWSP – Certified Wireless Security Professional
- CWAP – Certified Wireless Analysis Professional
- CWDP – Certified Wireless Design Professional
