CWNE Application

Thank you for the opportunity to apply for the CWNE certification. Wi-Fi has always been a technology that has fascinated and interested me, and through my pursuits of the CWNA and CWNP certifications I have learned a lot and enjoyed the process.

Through my various roles at a Managed Service Provider and at a major vendor, I have had a lot of exposure to and experience with Wi-Fi and related technologies. While I work at a wireless vendor, I appreciate and respect the vendor-neutral approach to the CWNP certifications. After completing my CCIE in Routing and Switching, I contemplated attempting the CCIE in Wireless, but found that a vendor neutral approach would be more meaningful. This program has already made a positive meaningful impact on my day to day job, and I aim to use this knowledge to continue to give back to the wireless community both at my job and abroad.

Thank you in advance for your consideration. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
