This does look correct, so long as you make sure to always plug in the APs to the tagged ports on those other switches.

You could, alternatively, just set all the ports to tag VLANs 2 and 3 on all 3 switches.

Tagging doesn't restrict that port to that VLAN; instead, what it does is indicate that traffic for that VLAN should be labeled as such whenever travelling on that port. If you leave the other ports untagged for VLANS 2/3, traffic for those VLANs will not work correctly on those ports, assuming you're using segregated DHCP ranges for the other VLANs.

Corin, what you are saying is I can do this...

Switch A
**********
Vlan2 tag  1-20
vlan3 tag 1-20

Switch B
**********
vlan2 tag 1-20
vlan3 tag 1-20

Keep in mind that you must also create the corresponding tag mapping on the Core Switch, and possibly on the firewall - unless you use different firewalls/routers for each of the VLANs.

Yes, you can tag those VLANs on all ports. Pergr is correct, though, that you should also tag that traffic on the core switch (again, you can do so on all ports without issues, as the tagging doesn't cause port to always use that VLAN, but just to tag traffic for that VLAN as belonging to it specifically).

Quality of Service (QoS) options are nearly endless when it comes to networks today. This article is merely one example of how it can be handled in a hub-n-spoke design using a 3-tier configuration.
Even if you have implemented a Mobile Device Management solution company wide, it is a good idea to make sure you are taking into account all of the major risks to your electronic protected health information (ePHI).
