    The CWNP program in last few weeks finally announced their premiere cerification CWNE (Certified Wireless Network Expert) which is the equivilant of achieving a vendor-neutral CCIE in 802.11 wireless networking.

    CWNE is the capstone certification of the CWNP program.

    Below are several important links to the pertinent information about CWNE:

    Press release: http://www.cwnp.com/about/news/2006/2006_08_01.html

    This cert has been long anticipated and will not be easy by any stretch.


    P.S. Please note that the CWNP guys have chosen the IEEE 802.11 Handbook (2nd Edition) as the study guide for CWNE. As an author of a CWNA study guide published by Sybex, I highly recommend the IEEE 802.11 Handbook as reading for all of the CWNP certifications.

    CWNE - Equal to CCIE?


    So it should take me more than say a weekend right? Or at least 3-4 weeks?

    Give me a second to finish my current goals this month and I'll put this claim to the test.

    I am a Cisco WLAN SE/FE from back in the day and I just finsihed a Network General Sniffer University Wireless LAN Network Analysis and Troubleshooting course and certfication and I understand this is an area for one of the exams towards the CWNE...

    I've looked at it before, I do not think it is the CCIE or even close, but hey...

    If employers think so, I'm game... I'll spend a weekend or two to a nail it to my trophy wall.

    Can't hurt.

    It's been a long weekend and I haven't taken and passed the CWNA yet. It's now 2010 and almost 2011 so I've completed the CCNP Wireless and I'm about ready to take the CWNA/CWSP exams any time now as my schedule permits.

    The CWNE is coming up and it is on my agenda along with the CCIE Wireless.

    Learned a lot over the years and a lot of more thanks to the CWNP programs.
