The top courses to help you get hired September 2017

It’s back-to-school time…

For many of us, September is all about getting back into the swing of things after summer. But whilst we may have swapped sun, sea and sand for storms, showers and school books, it doesn’t mean that exciting new opportunities aren’t still out there – and it’s not just the kids that can benefit.

If you’re ready to start learning, here are three of the top courses you could be taking right now…


Ethical Hacking

Looking for a career that breaks the rules? It’s time to go ‘white hat’…

Ethical Hackers differ from their ‘black hat’ counterparts in that they use their tech skills to identify vulnerabilities in systems and software – so a company can fix them before they’re found by the wrong people.

This certified Ethical Hacking course will introduce you to all the main threats to global IT systems you could encounter, and help provide all the fundamentals needed to find work in the industry full-time.

And it’s not just cyber security experts that stand to benefit. There are absolutely no prerequsites needed to get started, meaning you could eventually move into roles ranging from Penetration Tester to Security Officer and earn up to £55,000 per year – all with no previous experience.

Oh, and did we mention this course is used by the US Department of Defence to train their employees? Which, at the very least, will make your CV infinitely more interesting.

You’ll never look at spam in the same way again…

What do I need? Enthusiasm. That’s pretty much it (although a computer may help).

How long will it last? 40 hours of part-time study.

Perfect for: People who like phishing.
