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.

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 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.
