Wireless Design, Implementation and Administration Bootcamp
(including updated CWNA course and detailed 802.11ac coverage)
NOTICE: Seats are strictly limited and offered on a first-come, first-served basis. This is a one time offer scheduled in Sydney from Monday, 16th to Friday, 20th May 2016, delivered by U.S. feature wireless technology expert Devin Akin, co-founder and former CTO of CWNP (Certified Wireless Network Professional). See the ‘About Devin Akin’ section below for further details about your wireless bootcamp leader.
The Wireless Design, Implementation and Administration bootcamp is a one-off event for 2016 delivered by Devin Akin, an industry expert on wireless technology from the U.S. This bootcamp includes the updated content to our most popular, CWNA class based on the CWNA-106 exam and the latest, most up to date CWNA courseware released. In addition to covering the CWNA exam and course content, this one-off bootcamp is an extended five-day event that goes well beyond the average CWNA class or wireless training event with extended content from the CWDP, Wi-Fi design course, as well as rarely covered real-world 802.11ac and security content extending the benefits of this learning and development opportunity.
During the wireless bootcamp, Devin will take attendees through a real-world look at understanding how wireless technology works, how the standards and products are developed, and a real-world look at how each of the differing vendors’ products work. In addition to the CWNA course content, this workshop is designed to provide an advanced look at network planning, network design, site surveying, performance and security analysis plus much, much more.
For those who have been eagerly waiting, you’re about to take a look at the 802.11ac standard in much more detail than any event we’ve seen to-date and gain a real-world, vendor-independent perspective on the technology, the products and how it all actually works. Devin will take attendees on a journey into Wi-Fi design from both industry and vendor best practice plus a deep dive into IoT (Internet of Things), enabling a thorough understanding of what it is, why it’s important, and what you need to know in order to successfully prepare for it. Never before have we covered so much in any of our learning and development initiatives over the past decade.
Who is this wireless bootcamp for?
The Wireless Design, Implementation and Administration bootcamp is ideal for anyone who’s responsible for designing, implementing, managing, operating or supporting wireless LANs and those seeking the most up-to-date, real-world knowledge and expertise in wireless networking.
Have you ever wondered how each of the Wi-Fi vendors’ products work and how they differ from each other?
Are you about to embark on a new wireless LAN project and wondering how to ensure the success of your project?
Is your network ready for what’s to come?
Are you tired of problematic wireless networks and want to get the most out of your current investment before deciding to rip and replace?
Do you wish you had the advanced knowledge to provide performance assurance for your business?
If so… this workshop is for you.
For those seeking the CWNA certification, SpectroTech is the only CWNP Authorised Learning Partner (ALP) within Australia and therefore, the only company with access to the official CWNA courseware.
