CompTIA is one of the most well recognised global brands when it comes IT certifcations. In keeping with the growing need for trained cyber security professionals CompTIA has introduced several cyber security certifications to address this need

Jumping Bean is an accredited CompTIA training partner and we offer the following cyber security related training course:

Training Course Formats

The detail of our CompTIA training course provided below. In oder to accommodate the time constraints of our students we offer our training courses in a range of formats:

  • Short Course: This take the form of full day, instructor led, training sessions . It is best suited for corporates or those who already have experience in cyber security but wish to take an refresher course before sitting the exam.
  • Virtual Instructor Lead Course: This is run either online full time, as above, or part time. The part-time training  is held twice a week in the evenings, onlinr from 6:30 - 7:30.  This is ideal for students who cannot attend full day classes or for students who wish to work through the material between lectures to consolidate their understanding.
  • Online, Mentor lead training: This take the form of self-paced training with access to a mentor via mail, web chat or video call should a student require assistance to work though some key concepts or material.

What-ever your constraints we will have a format to accommodate you!
