You will learn how to design, implement, support and troubleshoot Wi-Fi networks.  You will learn about RF propagation and how to assist people moving into the untethered workplace.  Wi-Fi is similar to other networking technologies but at the same time different enough to warrant more learning and greater attention to detail because of the shared medium.

thank you Bryan. Do you know if subjects like Radius are involved in this program?

Basic RADIUS based security principles yes. But you have to get a Radius server to practice on. Some APs/controllers may run a small radius server for SMB installations. Look into the doc for the device.  otherwise the most common device is to get Free Radius and put in on a Linux.box.

You also need to learn about certificates and PKI insfrstructure. CWNP program is only theoretical on this part so you must create a lab environment to really get a good understanding.
