Wi-Fi Alliance (WF)

- formerly known as the Wireless Ethernet Compatibility Alliance (WECA), the Wi-Fi Alliance is a nonprofit international association formed in 1999 to certify interoperability of Wireless Local Area Network products based on the IEEE 802.11 standard and amendments. Wi-Fi Alliance certification programs address Wi-Fi products based on IEEE radio standards (e.g. IEEE 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g), wireless network security (WPA, WPA2, and WPS for personal and enterprise deployments), authentication mechanisms used to validate the identity of network devices (EAP), and support for multimedia content over Wi-Fi networks (WMM and WMM-PS).
Success Stories

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.
