FortiWLC - NSE 6 - Fortinet Wireless Controller (FORTIWLC)


Course Overview

In this three-day class, you will learn how to design, implement, and maintain a basic FortiWLC-based wireless network.

The practical labs will give you hands on experience in configuration, management, and monitoring of the wireless network.

This course prepares you for the FortiWLC 8.5 specialist exam. This specialization qualifies as one of the four required specializations to achieve the NSE 6 Network Security Specialist certification.
