PENETRATION TESTING PATHWAY - NEW FOR 2023
We're delighted to partner with Abertay University, the UK's leading provider of advanced 'Ethical Hacking' courses, and the Scottish Cyber and Fraud Centre to offer a short, tutored and remotely delivered 'Penetration Testing Course'. The course is designed to help people with military security training and experience realign and improve their skills for employment as Penetration Testers or Ethical Hackers.
This 'pathway to employment' programme is designed to provide members of the Armed Forces community (serving personnel, former members of the Armed Forces, spouses etc) with access to training & certification as an Ethical Hacker/ Pen Tester and, where appropriate, subsequent paid work experience or employment opportunities.
It's a 4 stage process:
- Application and selection; completion of pre-course training
- Pen Testing/ Ethical Hacking course (April - July 2023)
- CompTIA PenTest+ Certification
- Paid Work Placement or Employment (where appropriate)
If you're a competent IT user, willing to learn and have an interest in becoming a pen tester and gain the skills to become an Ethical Hacker or Penetration Tester, then this is for you. And it's FREE - no need to use up ELC or IRTC grants and no course fees.
Closing date for applications for the Friday 17th March.
