Miscellaneous Wireless Certifications

With a little searching and probing around on the Internet, you may be able to come up with even more credentials than those that appear in the following table. All of these have definite wireless connections, even those that don't focus more or less exclusively on wireless topics, tools, or technologies.


Hint: if the cert includes the term "wireless" in its name, it's far more likely to focus in that subject area than if it doesn't!
