Course Description

Welcome to Cisco's CCNA Wireless course for the (640-720) IUWNE certification!

This course is over 12+ hours in length and will cover all the needed subjects to be successful in helping to prepare and pass the CCNA Wireless exam.

This course packs a punch!...not only will the student acquire the knowledge needed for Cisco's certification exam; but what is learned herein will be transferable to the real world for a small and/or Enterprise environment.

Students will get an in-depth understanding of networking, using wireless routers along with switches and their various configurations and connections. Students will learn about different types of wireless topologies, wireless RF fundamentals, wireless standards and an introduction to wireless security.

This course will also prepare the student in Layer 2 technology and its various configurations, such as; VLAN’s, Inter-VLAN communication & Trunking.

Students will also acquire the basic understanding needed to secure their wireles networks using the following techniques and protocols; PSK. 802.1x, WPA/WPA2 with EAP-TLS, EAP-FAST, PEAP and LEAP.

Student will learn how to install the Cisco Unified Wierless Network (CUWN), how to setup the WLC management, manage stand alone AP's, and be able to troubleshoot, maintain wireless networks.

This is a full comprehensive course that will take you from A-Z in your quest to acquire the Cisco Wireless Certification!

What are the requirements?

  • Students taking this course should have a working understanding of basic networking. You would need to have the Cisco Packet Tracer (this is for certain labs such as the RADIUS) or preferebly, live equipement. If, however, you don not have this, it is not a big issue. I have plenty of configuration examples in the course which will be provided.
  • Students need to have a positive mind-set, because this course has a lot of acronyms and terminology that students need to commit to memory.
  • Students need to know that they will need to visit this course several times before scheduling their CCNA Wireless (650-722) certification exam.
  • Students should know that the options to pause, fast-forward and rewind will be extremely useful in this course.
  • In order to be eligible to take Cisco's CCNA Wireless (640-722) certification exam, the student must of already have either the CCENT (or ICND1), or the CCNA (or a highter Cisco certification). Cisco will not allow anyone to take or schedule the CCNA Wireless (640-722) certification exam unless the student has shown that they have passed at least one of the certifications mentioned herein.
  • Students should know that most of this course is taught through theory since live equipment for a Wireless class is virtually non-existent unless the class is taught in a "brick and mortar" or conventional classroom environment.
  • This course will not be updated anytime in 2016. Students can stills use this course for the new test since most of what is taught is still relevant to the Wireless certification.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Creating the right type of wireless enviroment is extremely important.
  • Choosing the appropriate wireless equipement for your wireless enviroment is as equally important.
  • Students will be able to better prepare to set up a wireless environment.
  • Preparing for Cisco's CCNA Wireless certification exam will be a breeze once you complete this course!

What is the target audience?

  • The Cisco CCNA Wireless course is for students who want to pass the CCNA Wireles Certification and have already obtained the Cisco CCENT or CCNA exams. If you are working in the IT industry and want to learn about wireless networks this course will be a great foundation to start implementing wireless in your network..
  • This Cisco CCNA Wireless course could also be for individuals that have some networking background and simply want to learn about wireless neworks, specially Cisco wireless networks.

Instructor Biography

Lazaro Diaz, Network Engineer, Cisco & Microsoft Instructor

2016 will be the year to reach your goal!

If you are determined, ambitious and hungry for a new beginning...then 2016 should be your year.

...and how better to start the year than to get your CCNA!

Whether you are interested in the CCNA R/S, the CCNA Wireless or just want to understand the key topics of these certification exams, taking one or all of my courses, will get you a little closer to that goal.

But, don't take my word for it...please take a look at the FREE previews (they are available in all my courses) and see for yourself.

As for me, 2016 will be the year of putting out new courses for different types of IT certifications among other things

What you wanted to know about me:

If you are tired of the same old methods of learning and want someone that is pretty much unconventional, but at the same time will provide you with an enjoyable learning experience in layman's terms...then please preview my courses and you will discover that I am your guy.

I am a Network Engineer with over 14+ years in the field and in the teaching industry. I hold the following certifications: CCNA, CCNA Security, CCNA Voice, Security+, Network+, A+, MCP, MCTS & MOS and I just passed the first of two test for the CCIE! My teaching experience stems from teaching at institutions like Palm Beach Community College, New Horizons, Florida Career College (now Anthem College) and The Academy of South Florida, not to mention teaching at my own training facility in Miami, Florida and now being if several e-Learning platforms world-wide.

Having been in all sides of the spectrum; as a student, a teacher/trainer, and in the field, I believe this uniquely qualifies me to understand the student, and what they have been exposed to as opposed to what they really want to accomplish. These two are sometimes extremely conflicting and frustrating. That is why I teach in the manner I do and can relate to the student's rejection of the Status Quo.

I have taught corporate employees at MetroPCS (now T-Mobil) and have also taught IT professionals of companies like The Florida Marlins, Hospital personnel & Attorney's firms among others to be able to acquire their CCNA certification and/or their Microsoft certifications; like the MOS (Microsoft Office Specialist). YES!...I am also an applications instructor and also teach Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Access.

I teach in an unconventional way that allows for students to understand the subject matter and can therefore, not only prepare them for a Cisco and/or Microsoft certification exam, but apply my methods in the real world. I strive to give the student a greater opportunity to compete in the current job markets. Do I go above and beyond what is needed for a certification?...YES, I do!...because it's not only about getting a certification, it's also about making sure the student is prepared for a job interview and/or maintaining their current job by enhancing their skills. This is where I step in and make sure that the student is prepared for whatever they need and make them an asset to their employer. Everyone has different requirements and I make sure, or at least I try, to provide information for most scenarios.

My classes and/or courses are very simple and that's how I like to teach. If things are kept simple, easy and explained in a way that the student can grasp quickly and retain the information...then I have achieved my goal!

For those that do not know me yet, you may not be used to my style of teaching, but you will soon get accustomed to it :)... I'm very laid back, I try to make learning fun and I teach in layman's physics jargon or mumbo jumbo in my teachings. My courses are very interactive and extremely dynamic! will not find my lectures monotone or boring, because falling asleep, for lack of excitement, is just NOT an option. Just take a look for yourself at my video previews, which I always provide on ALL my courses, so you can determine if I'm the right guy to help you get your industry specific certifications. ;)

I certainly hope that after a careful review of my credentials & testimonials (you can Google it you know!), I'm the Cisco & Microsoft Instructor you're looking for!
