2017: A Year in Review

2017: A Year in Review

By CWNP On 01/05/2018 - 61 Comments

This year has brought a lot of change to CWNP. Here's our look back:


You met our new President. Sean Stallings took the reigns in January 2017. He built a team to take CWNP and our Wi-Fi certifications to the next level and met many of our CWNEs and certification holders throughout the year.


We've spent the last year refreshing our certifications and sharing relevant knowledge. We improved our CWNA certification with the release of the CWNA-107 after much research on job expectations and the updates to technology and standards since the last release. CWNP released an update to the CWSP study guide with the help of Lee Badman. 


We launched Certified Wireless Specialist (CWS) and Certified Wireless Technician (CWT). These certifications met the need for simple, entry-level wireless certifications in a truly engaging manner. 


We put on our best conference yet. You networked. You learned from experts in the field. You had the chance to take an on-site course and exam. Wi-Fi Trek Orlando had many of you saying: "Keep up the Good Work." 


We took you to the next level in your career. Over 2,000 individuals received a CWNP certification. This year, our CWNE Board of Advisors awarded our 250th CWNE. 
More than 10,000 unique jobs were posted on Indeed.com asking for a CWNP certification in the past six months. 


You joined us in our initiative to build community. We started a Twitter Chat, revamped our newsletter, showed up on social media, held countless webinars, and met you in person at several conferences.


Here's to another great year! 

We want to hear from you; what would you like to see from us in 2018?

I literally just came out of the testing centre having taken the CWDP exam. The certification process opened my mind to different techniques and solutions. This knowledge can only broaden your perspective. Great job, CWNP, you have a great thing going on here.

I want to commend you and all at CWNP for having a great organization. You really 'raise the bar' on knowing Wi-Fi well. I have learned a ton of information that is helping my job experience and personal career goals, because of my CWAP/CWDP/CWSP studies. Kudos to all at CWNP.
