MikroTik Certified Switching Engineer Certification (MTCSWE)

The Mikrotik Training Academy offers interested parties from all over the world the opportunity to gain experience and to find out more about MikroTik products and technologies. The MikroTik training program consists of courses that are held worldwide by official MikroTik certified trainers. Participation in these courses therefore also offers the opportunity to receive professional certification in various MikroTik product technologies.

The Certified Switching Engineer (MTCSWE) course includes knowledge of Layer 2 Forwarding using MikroTik’s technologies. Part of the course are practical exercises with a training kit so that you can apply the knowledge you have acquired straight away. The exam to be passed is a central online test specified by MikroTik.

After passing the exam, you will receive a certificate. By the end of this training, you will be familiar with RouterOS Layer 2 Forwarding software and understand the “RouterBOARD Hardware Switch Chip” and Bridge features. You can configure and manage Layer 2 forwarding with MIkroTik network solutions.

The target group is network engineers and technicians who want to create or maintain Layer 2-based networks.

We recommend preparation on the following topics:

  • Layer 2 networking
  • Bridging
  • Switching
  • VLAN

Language : This course is multilingual and is held in German and English.
