Course Overview

Implementing Cisco Wireless Network Fundamentals (WIFUND) is a five-day ILT course that is designed to help students prepare for the Cisco CCNA® Wireless certification, an associate-level certification specializing in the wireless field. Completion of the WIFUND course and CCNA Wireless certification are prerequisites to the Cisco CCNP® Wireless curriculum. The CCNA Wireless curriculum will prepare the wireless network associate for the use, positioning, planning, implementation, and operation of Cisco WLAN networks. The goal of the WIFUND course is to provide students with information and practice activities to prepare them to help design, install, configure, monitor, and conduct basic troubleshooting tasks of a Cisco WLAN in small and medium-sized business and enterprise installations. As an associate level, the course aims at providing entry- level information and will not specialize in any of the advanced features of the Cisco WLAN solutions.

Implementing Cisco Wireless Network Fundamentals (WIFUND) is also available in Digital Learning.  365-day subscription for $745.00.  See Digital Learning for purchase or call 703.467.8600.
