Ubiquiti Networks

The Ubiquiti Enterprise Wireless Admin (UEWA) is a two-day, in-classroom training course focused on the most important concepts in Enterprise Wireless Networking, with special emphasis on best practices for designing/managing UniFi WLANs. Hands-on labs reinforce knowledge of wireless concepts and advanced wireless features.

Learning is reinforced with course materials and practical lab activities using the latest UniFi Controller and 802.11ac, 2nd-Gen UAP hardware.

Those students who complete the course and pass the exam at the end will be fully certified as a Ubiquiti Enterprise Wireless Admin and receive their official certificate and t-shirt from Ubiquiti Networks.

Course Requirements

Students are required to bring a laptop with a wired ethernet port (or USB ethernet adapter) and Java installed/updated. Students should also bring their laptop power adapter, a powerboard and 3 x ethernet patch leads (short length – 1m or less is fine). Some knowledge in basic networking principles including IP sub-netting is assumed.

Please note: Students must bring their own kit. The trainer is unable to provide power boards, ethernet adapters, cables or laptops on the day.
