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.

As the demand for wireless continues to grow, so does the need for certified network administrators.

Becoming a CWT

The CWT certification is an entry-level WLAN certification from the vendor-neutral CWNP organization that brought you CWNA and other advanced certifications. To earn the CWT certification, you must pass an online exam with a score of 70% or higher. Those desiring to work as instructors teaching CWT classes must pass with a score of 80% or higher. Regardless of the way you choose to prepare for the CWT exam, you should start with the exam objectives, which cover the full list of knowledge tested on the exam. The CWT is a three-year certification, and it is renewed by passing the most recent version of the CWT exam again.
