I am thrilled to announce that the Wireshark Certified Network Analyst Exam is
NOW AVAILABLE ! The Exam is available globally in a proctored format through
Kryterion. Currently the Exam is only available in English.

The Wireshark Certification Exam was designed to confirm
individual competencies in using Wireshark to locate the
cause of network problems (poor performance or security-
related) and confirm your knowledge of TCP/IP network
communications in general.

The Exam is based on the thirty-three areas of study defined in the Exam Focus
and Content section of this document. The four primary areas covered in this
Exam are:

  • Wireshark Functionality
  • TCP/IP Network Communications

To earn the Wireshark Certified Network Analyst status, you must pass a single
exam—the WCNA-100x Exam (version 100.1 is the current version).
