The CWNA Lab Workbook from WiFi Training was developed to help reinforce the concepts and theory learned in the world’s most popular vendor-agnostic Wireless training and certification program, the CWNA. The current Certified Wireless Network Associate or CWNA program focuses on core Wireless and 802.11 theory and concepts rather than configuring a specific vendor's solution allowing the program to remain vendor agnostic. This workbook was developed to provide students learning wireless fundamentals the ability to get hand’s practice with the latest vendor solutions, and designed to stay with the vendor-agnostic approach.
“Students can now get vital hand’s on experience with a variety of vendor software/hardware solutions, reinforcing the theory and knowledge learned in a CWNA or Wireless Fundamentals course. Our mission with this workbook series is to create a more well-rounded and confident WLAN Engineer by giving them real-world assignments, and hand’s on access to a suite of the latest WLAN tools and equipment to begin building that critical experience” – Say’s Chris Avants, Principal Instructor @ WiFi Training.
The CWNA Lab workbook is extensive with over 30 exercises in a dozen labs that take students through supporting the wireless life-cycle.
- Explore the RF Spectrum
- Finding sources of non-802.11 interference
- 11 Protocol Analysis
- Capture an Association & 4 Way Handshake

Labs are structured as task-based learning to closely mimic real-world requests. After the initial discovery of the process, students are given assignments that must be completed successfully. For example, users in the Toronto office are complaining of poor WLAN performance. Using the tools and methods you just learned, troubleshoot the Toronto office, and recommend the appropriate changes to improve performance.
