An introduction to MikroTik, based on the official MikroTik MTCNA training. This course will give you the background knowledge and self-confidence to participate in module 1 of the official MTCNA MiktoTik training.

Each lecture will explain the theory and finish off with a lab exercise to enhance the knowledge just gained, converting it to practical know-how. 

Experience thought official MikroTik trainers that the first day in a class has the potential to change any good intended day into a very slow starting day if some participants PC still has company IT rules and firewalls enabled, blocking the use of Winbox or prohibiting the change of the PC's IP addresses.

This is exactly where this course fits in, it will assist you to get your whole system classroom-ready, it is not a full Mikrotik course, it is a guideline based on the official MTCNA course to make sure your PC has all the administrative rights, you have the latest WinBox installed and you can communicate with your MikroTik.

It also covers the content of Module 1 of the official MTCNA course and students working through the training will have the knowledge to answer a lot of the Module 1 questions cumming up in the MTCNA exam.

As this course is based on the curriculum of the official MTCNA training course, it can be used by any student worldwide to get them ready for day one of any official MTCNA course.
