After the CCNA, can I pursue CWNA, Cisco's wireless certification?

Get advice on which wireless networking certificate to pursue after completing a CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Associate) course, from our expert David Minutella.

Currently, I am doing CCNA. Can I pursue CWNA after CCNA?
CWNA (Certified Wireless Network Administrator) is a great follow-up exam after the CCNA if you wish to concentrate your area of expertise in wireless. You need to know high-level concepts about wireless in the CCNA, but nothing too in depth. Also, you might consider taking the CCNAWireless specialization that came out this year and the brand new CCNP-Wireless certification as well which revolves around Cisco Unified Wireless Networks. I talk about the differences of CCNA Wireless and CWNA certifications in a previously-answered Ask the Expert response here.
