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 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 course, the CompTIA Security+ is by far the most prestigious. It is held in high regard within the IT security industry across the globe.

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.

This course 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.
