This month we will be taking a look at the Certified Wireless Analysis Professional (CWAP) certification. With the help of CWNP and the Airheads Community members we will assist you in achieving the CWAP certification. If you already have the CWAP cert chime in and give us a good understanding of what to key on, help us put together a study guide to assist in acheiving the certification.
The CWAP certification is a professional level wireless LAN certification for the CWNP Program. The CWAP certification will advance your career by ensuring you have the skills to successfully analyze, troubleshoot, and optimize any enterprise Wi-Fi network, no matter which brand of Wi-Fi gear your organization deploys. To earn a CWAP certification, you must hold a current and valid CWNA credential.
