Overview

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 cyber security 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 cyber security 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 cyber security 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 cyber security 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.

This will allow you to gauge your effectiveness before moving to the next module in your course. Hudson courses also include practice exams designed to replicate and mirror the environment in the testing center. These exams are on average 100 questions to ensure you are 100% prepared before taking your certification exam.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
