Certified Wireless Network Expert
The Certified Wireless Network Expert (CWNE) is the highest level certification in the CWNP program started in 2001 by Planet3 Wireless. It certifies the ability to design, install, secure, optimize and troubleshoot IEEE 802.11 wireless networks.
The CWNE is the final exam in a four-level certification process. In addition to the wireless fundamentals, administration and security aspects certified by the preceding qualifications in the program, the CWNE adds network and protocol analysis skills.
The requirements for earning the CWNE certification changed on October 1, 2010, when the CWNE exam (PW0-300) was retired. The new requirements for the CWNE certification are:
- Valid and current CWSP, CWAP, and CWDP certifications (requires CWNA).
- Three (3) years of documented enterprise Wi-Fi implementation experience.
- Three (3) professional endorsements.
- Two (2) other current, valid professional networking certifications.
- Documentation of three (3) enterprise Wi-Fi projects in which you participated or led in the form of 500 word essays.
- Re-certification every three (3) years by passing the most current version of either the CWSP, CWAP, or CWDP exam.
