Course Outline


SNSA - SonicWall Network Security Administration certification.

Students should possess an in‐depth understanding of networking fundamentals and architecture including OSI data model, IP addressing, dynamic routing, switching, VoIP, cloud and virtualization, network topologies and connectivity, wired and wireless networks, system backup and recovery, network applications and peripherals, and network management protocols.
Students should be knowledgeable of enterprise security concepts and technologies such as firewalls, gateways, VPN architecture, threat protection, content filtering, NAT, IPSec, SSL, DPI, zones, encryption and cryptography, access control, identity management, security compliance policies, and the latest cyber threats and vulnerabilities.


Previously known as the NSAA - Network Security Advance Administration course, the revamped SNSP curriculum expands on the topics covered in SNSA and features advanced SonicWall firewall configuration and administration tasks aimed at helping enterprises adapt to dynamic security environments. The SNSP - SonicWall Network Security Professional course is an expert‐level training and certification program that builds on the enterprise security skills learned in the SNSA course.

Relevant changes to the curriculum include an enhanced and deeper scope of SonicOS 6.5.x features and functionality, as well as changes in the learning and delivery methodologies to better balance the professional needs of the student and the business requirements for network and cybersecurity.


Students will learn to monitor, investigate, analyze, and configure SonicWall next‐generation firewalls running SonicOS to enable advanced functionality related to secure and remote connectivity, network optimization, and threat prevention.

Upon successful completion of the SNSP program, students will be able to demonstrate SonicWall product expertise and the application skill sets required to mount a proactive, effective defense against current and evolving network and cybersecurity threats.

I would never take another course that starts at 11AM and goes to 9PM again. The way the course was laid out really took away from the capturing of what was presented as it was 5-6 hours of watching a screen before getting to the actual labs. There has to be a better way to lay out this particular course. In my previous course, the lectures were broken up by labs which worked out fantastic and kept you engaged in the course. There were days when in order to actually complete the labs, would go over the 9PM day end time frame. Was able to get the primary labs done, but if you want to get all the content completed, you cannot complete it in the window of this course, you will need to come back on your own time.

Wasn’t as advanced as I thought it would be. There was an issue when the day my course was the first time they used a new platform.. from adobe to something called zoom; I had to call support line cause it stated our instructor wasn’t present. Thankfully I called cause everyone online was in the adobe virtual classroom waiting for what looked like a teacher who didn’t show up for class (IT didn’t get anything resolved until 10mins after start time). I felt like he was really getting hung up on very basic knowledge for the first half of the course (talking about how to create tabs and drag formulas as an example). I completed files a few times before he was done explaining. There was a scheduled fire drill for them (roughly 30mins)that also cut into our time, which wasn’t deducted from the hour lunch break or the two, fifteen min breaks. I also really wish he touched base more on the automating workbook functions portion which we barely did. I'm happy there were/are those study guides (learning videos) and exams to take on my own time that I hope after I've had the class are still available for me to learn from.
