CWS - Certified Wireless Specialist
The Certified Wireless Specialist (CWS) is a certification that validates the knowledge of wireless sales, marketing, entry-level support, and decision-making professionals related to 802.11 wireless networks.
The learning materials explain the language of Wi-Fi as well as the typical hardware and software used in wireless local area networks (WLANs). From radio frequency (RF) to Wi-Fi client devices, the CWS learns the terminology and processes of Wi-Fi.
CWT - Certified Wireless Technician
The Certified Wireless Technician (CWT) is an individual who can install APs based on a design document, configure the AP for initial operations and ensure connectivity. The individual can troubleshoot basic problems and assist users in-person or through remote communications in problem resolution. The ability to configure a WLAN client for connectivity is paramount with an understanding of the configuration process for SSIDs, security settings and other client adapter settings.
This individual is not responsible for WLAN design, analysis or security design; however, the CWT should be able to gather information from a design specification document to properly configure an AP and troubleshoot individual connection issues. The CWT may not be aware of the actual WLAN architectural design, the RF design or the full feature set in use to implement the WLAN.
