MikroTik Certified Network Associate

Prerequisite: None

– To progress further up the Mikrotik Certification Path the MTCNA is a pre-requisite for any of the higher level engineer courses. 

The MTCNA course is designed as an introductory course to the MikroTik RouterOS software. The course starts with the basics of using MikroTik and works its way through basic routing, switching, bridging, wireless, network management, firewalls, quality of service, and tunnels. The class is taught in a lab environment with a lab completed after each module is covered to reinforce the concepts covered. By the end of the course, you will be familiar with RouterOS and be able to provide basic services to customers.
