The ECSE Design course is 1 of 3 courses that Ekahau offer, they also offer an Advanced and Troubleshoot course, for further information on Ekahau and the courses refer here
The Design course covers the fundamentals of using the Ekahau software, RF, Design requirements and a heap more.
To ensure you get the most out of the course, I would highly recommend you have a good foundational knowledge of wireless ( 802.11). One way of ensure this is by having read and grasped the material covered in the CWNA study guide book offered by CWNP, more information on this can found here: https://www.cwnp.com/certifications/cwna .
The first day of the course does cover what they refer to as CWNA lite, but trust me and do yourself a favour, read and understand the material covered in the CWNA book before going on this course.
I had an absolute blast on this course, Dicker Data (Darko) was a fantastic host & Eddie Forero a brilliant instructor.
Apart from the course another huge highlight was talking to different wireless professionals and the after training activities. There was some great knowledge sharing conversation had!
Before doing this course I having been using Ekahau for many years, since transitioning from another product, but never completed any offical training, everything I learned came from experience (trial & error), CWNP, Ekahau guides, YouTube and advice from the twitter wireless community.
There is a wealth of information out there but it can certainly be overwhelming and steer you in the wrong direction.
I would highly recommend the ECSE Design course to anyone that wants to learn more about:
- Wireless design requirements
- Wireless capacity requirements
- Wireless site surveys
- Wireless documentation and reporting
- Looking at doing the ECSE-Advanced course as Design is a pre-req
- Learning from experienced instructors that are veterans in this field.
- And of course learn more about using Ekahau software and SideKick.
