Course description

If you’ve ever considered working within the cyber security industry, but felt you lacked the knowledge or skills to launch your career, this might be what you’re looking for.This course bundle is aimed at absolute beginners to IT who want to start a career in cyber security or just develop their skills in this area.

The course assumes you have no technical knowledge of IT whatsoever. To understand cyber security and practice it at a technical level, you must first possess an understanding of basic IT literacy as well as certain technologies such as computer systems and networks, which you will be taught through this course.

This course is designed to gradually build your knowledge and confidence to sit the final certification exam: the CompTIA Security+. Of all the certifications you will gain in this bundle, the CompTIA Security+ is by far the most prestigious. It is held in high regard within the IT security industry and attracts an average salary of £48,850 p.a. (source: ITjobswatch).

From the beginning, we teach you about basic IT literacy, basic software features and functions, basic networking, operating systems, and basic security threats. From there, the course steps up a notch exploring these areas in more depth. As you progress through the various stages, your knowledge of the systems based around cyber security will gradually begin to develop.

Upon completion of the course, you will exit with a series of globally respected certifications and a deeper knowledge of cyber security concepts. You will also possess a set of cyber security skills you can apply to a vast range of cyber security job roles.

The course bundle is comprised of six separate courses in total. Three of which are skills based only with no exam, and three certification courses with a final exam after each course. The final course being the CompTIA Security+. Two of the non-certification courses provide a soft introduction to modern day cyber security practices. These course titles include Cyber Security Awareness and Prevention; and Data Security Compliance.

The skills and certifications that you gain through this course will offer you scope to work in other areas aside from cyber security. These include IT support, networking, systems administration, and data compliance.

How is each course taught?

All courses are online and self-paced, meaning you do it in your own home, in your own time, at your own pace and best of all… any where in the world, providing you have access to a laptop, PC or desktop computer, and an internet connection. Each lesson is pre-recorded allowing you to pause, fast-forward, skip sections, or go back to another lesson if you need to. The lessons are multi-media based, which means video and audio are used to teach the lessons. Your tutor will PowerPoint slides, illustrations, diagrams and give demonstrations to teach each class. Most lessons are also interactive, prompting the learner to participate. This might involve answering on-screen questions, participating in tasks.

How long will it take me to complete each course?

As mentioned above, our courses are self-paced. Some people finish their course faster than others. Each certification course is between 12-30 hours. If you choose to only do one of the certification courses from this bundle, then it will take you less time than if you do two or three or all of them. No matter what though, you will always have 12 months to complete your course.
