Training Course Formats

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

  • Short Course: This takes the form of full-day, instructor-led, training sessions. It is best suited for corporates or those who already have experience in cybersecurity but wish to take a 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, online 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 takes 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 through some key concepts or material.

Whatever your constraints we will have a format to accommodate you! We offer CompTIA Cybersecurity training in South Africa and internationally.

CompTIA Security+

The CompTIA Security+ exam will certify that the successful candidate has the knowledge and skills required to install and configure systems, secure applications, networks, and devices; perform threat analysis and respond with appropriate mitigation techniques.

A student who successfully completes this course can participate in risk mitigation activities; and operate with an awareness of applicable policies, laws, and regulations.

CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP+)

The CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP+) certification is a certification for technical professionals who wish to remain immersed in technology, as opposed to strictly managing. The performance-based certification test both security architecture and engineering skills. CASP validates advanced-level competency in the following areas:

  • Risk management,
  • enterprise security operations and
  • architecture.

CASP is compliant with ISO 17024 standards and approved by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to meet directive 8140/8570.01-M requirements.  The CASP+ certification training course will teach candidates technical skills in security architecture and senior security engineering in traditional, cloud, and hybrid environments. Additionally, it covers governance, risk, and compliance skills and how to assess an enterprise’s cybersecurity readiness and implement robust cybersecurity solutions.
