Frequently asked questions
Here are a few answers to your most common questions.
Who is this for?
Anyone who has some education, understanding and experience in IT, or someone coming from a relevant business experience who is looking to advance their career towards cyber security.
I don't have any IT Skills. Can I still join?
Yes! It doesn't require you to have a lot of technical knowledge, education, or to emerge as a Cyber Specialist. With us, you will grasp the required and applicable capabilities to grow to be a cyber specialist in merely 3-4 months.
What laptop specs are required?
Please ensure your computer is 2015 or later with at least 8GB of RAM. You will have a better experience with a Mac or Linux but a computer with Windows 10 is also fine.
Are there any other requirements or equipment needed?
We will provide all software applications that are required throughout the course. Other than your own device and general stationery items there is nothing else you will need to bring.
What is the expected commitment outside of class hours? Will I have homework?
In order to complete the projects throughout the course, students will need to spend time outside of class hours studying, practicing and working on assessments. The amount of time and effort you can put in will reflect what you get out of the course. It is suggested that students in the bootcamp would do at least 10 hours per week self-study. The more you put in, the more you will get out of it.
How does the admission process work?
Spots are limited and we accept candidates on a rolling basis. Our programs start every Monday.
The first step involves a 10-15 minute questionnaire to learn about your prior educational and work experience.
Based on your responses, we might ask for additional information e.g. a brief phone interview, or a quick technical and security challenge just to make sure the Penetration Testing Bootcamp is a good fit for you.
How long does this course take?
Becoming a Cyber Security Specialist takes time and effort. We’ve built a curriculum to teach you what you should know to land a job. The course length is 6 months, but students have the flexibility to complete the course sooner since some part of the content is self-pace. We expect students will finish the course in 6 months, working at ~20 hours per week.
How soon can I find a job?
There are modules in the course which focus on career components. In those modules, you’ll learn the latest job hunting strategies and work 1:1 with your career coach to create a successful job search strategy, build your network in tech, craft a cyber security analyst resume and LinkedIn profile, practice mock technical and behavioral interviews, debrief after actual job interviews, and negotiate your salary. We expect you to land a cybersecurity analyst job within six months of course graduation.
