Training with The Cyber Scheme
Acquire the skills, knowledge and techniques required for a rewarding career in security testing with our comprehensive training courses and advanced practitioner mentoring.
The Cyber Scheme are experts in best practice penetration testing, being one of only two companies able to certify CHECK assessments for NCSC. We have created our training in order for practitioners to identify knowledge gaps and continue their career progression with confidence. Our trainers and assessors have many years’ experience in creating, developing, and running comprehensive exams aimed at skilled security testers.
The Cyber Scheme has a specialist team of CTL level assessors, trainers and invigilators able to train individuals in all aspects of ethical hacking, including for CHECK accreditation, within private sector companies and for individuals wishing to increase their knowledge from beginner to advanced. Our training and mentoring sessions are run by Paul Richards, a subject matter expert in ethical hacking and penetration testing who specialises in helping others progress within cyber security through training, mentoring and the highest standard of assessment.
We have also developed entry level resources for junior testers and their potential employers, helping to bridge the gap between academic learning and practical experience.
In addition to web-based hacking courses, we have recently introduced CSII – a comprehensive course aimed at developing skilled practitioners for the IoT and OT landscape – a growing and vital component of offensive security provision.
Learn with the best today – contact us for more details, syllabus content and pricing.
N.B Please don’t book a CHECK exam using our online system if you are undertaking training with us – this is to ensure we use different assessors for both as per NCSC requirements. If you wish to book training followed by an exam, let us know when you book your training, and we will advise of suitable exam dates.
