Course Synopsis

This course dives deeper into protocol analysis, particularly a more thorough understanding of TCP/IP and related protocol variants, both benevolent and nefarious. It builds on the troubleshooting concepts in WP-200 to include long-term statistics gathering, monitoring, and general network health. The in-class activities are a bit more advanced, often combining concepts in more complex scenarios for students to decipher. Successful graduates from this class will be ready to immediately apply skills in real-world environments

This is also the educational product created when one or more courses are "compressed" into fewer days than are normally allocated.
