FAQ - Frequently asked questions
Can a beginner enroll in the course without experience with working with MIkrotik devices?
The recommended course for people without knowledge of using Mikrotik devices is the MTCNA course. This training is designed to familiarize participants with the basics of network administration based on devices operating under the control of the MikroTik RouterOS system.
Which course should I choose?
We recommend MTCNA basic training for people without experience in network administration. People with MTCNA certification and wanting to broaden their knowledge about working with Mikrotik devices can choose the further certification path between trainings: MTCRE, MTCWE, MTCTCE and MTCIPv6E. For those interested in working with network control, we recommend proprietary workshops from the Capsman controller. People who want to learn the secrets of configuring Mikrotik devices are encouraged to participate in the original Mikrotik Scripts workshops.
