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.

Upon completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the basic RF principles and characteristics
  • Understand WLAN security methods and access with differing client devices
  • Define the Cisco WLAN architecture and the underling infrastructure used to support it
  • Implement a Centralized wireless access network using AireOS or IOS-XE wireless LAN controllers
  • Implement a Converged wireless access network using IOS-XE converged access switches and wireless LAN controllers


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.


This course is part of the following Certifications:

  • Cisco Certified Network Associate Wireless  (CCNA Wireless)

It is recommended, but not required, that students have the following knowledge and skills before attending this course:

  • Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices Part 1 (ICND1) and Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices Part 2 (ICND2) or
  • Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT)
