Path for Advancement in the WLAN Field
Advancement in the Wireless Local Area Networking (WLAN) field requires a wide body of knowledge and skills in multiple technologies. The Wireless Training & Solutions (WiTS) "Proficiency Mentoring Program" (PMP) has been designed to guide a WLAN technologist from entry-level to expert-level competencies. This comprehensive learning plan consists of three stages with various prerequisites, core requirements, and elective training modules at each stage.
Upon completion of a course, you will receive a Course Badge. Courses are set as prerequisites for each module. Recognition of achievement for each of the modules takes the form of a digitally certified, transferable, open badge, referred to as the WiTS Medallion.
Upon enrollment, you will be issued a blank Starter Medallion. As you receive your Course Badges, these will be applied to your Starter Medallion accordingly, in the form of a star.
Upon completion of the required courses for each level, the Medallion Ring will change to the appropriate color.
The Medallion Ring levels are as follows:
- Entry-Level - Associate - Green Ring
- Field Engineer - Professional - Blue Ring
- Architect or Diagnostician - Expert - Ultra-Violet Ring
