New Challenges, New Opportunities: MikroTik MTCNA

Rising to the Challenge: COVID's Havoc on Businesses

Even with the roll-out of numerous vaccine programs and the tentative but optimistic end of Covid-19 slowly coming into sight, the ramifications of business lockdowns exceeding well over a year are bound to leave a lasting mark. In July 2020, CFIB (Canadian Federation of Independent Business) estimated that an average of 1 in 7 Canadian businesses risk permanent closure due to the pandemic.

Under such circumstances, it falls unto every single one of us to make an effort toward a collective recovery. At Wireless Netware Technolgy, we have set out to provide Canadians and their businesses with productive training courses, assisting them in their strive to recover from the pandemic and quickly get back on track.

Wireless Netware Technology's Free Online MTCNA Program

MTCNA, that stands for MikroTik Certified Network Associate, is the prerequisite MikroTik certificate for all other MikroTik training programs and certifications. According to MikroTik, at the end of the MTCNA:

"the student will be familiar with RouterOS software and RouterBOARD products and be able to connect the client to the Internet. He will also be able to configure, manage, do basic troubleshooting of a MikroTik router, and provide basic services to clients."

Where do we fit here, you ask?

In partnership with MikroTik Canada, we are actively creating free online tutorials that cover all the subjects taught in an MTCNA course session by session.

Now, you have the opportunity to enroll in an MTCNA course at your own pace, within your daily commute, during lunch breaks, or from the safe comfort of your home.

Sounds pretty promising, doesn't it? We think the same. Passing the MTCNA course is the first step for you or your staff to take the helm of network management for your residence, business, or other neighboring enterprises.


Not only do you cut costs and find greater control over your network connectivity, you will become rather independent from technical support, tending to your network issues more quickly without the need to worry about distancing protocols in the event of requesting on-site support.

Interested about this free course? Start now!

Together with MikroTik Canada, we have already prepared a number of tutorials so you can get a headstart.


Titled Toddler Tutorials for their simple and easy-to-understand content, these tutorials will help you quickly make progress and achieve the necessary practical knowledge you need for an MTCNA certificate.


The most recent session of our Toddler Tutorials deal with SSH, Telnet, and New Terminal RouterOS management tools. You can find this tutorial below:

And, by the way, we have an exciting announcement...

Trainees who enroll in this free online course can sit the MTCNA exam at the end of the program, free of charge, for a chance to receive their certificate!
