Training Methodology

Our Real-Skills-for-Real-Jobs™ training methodology incorporates real-world learning activities with hands-on exercises to distill complex theoretical topics under expert guidance and supervision. Our approach provides students with technical knowledge, value-add skills, and free post-class [1] support, to enhance knowledge retention and guarantee success. Specifically, our methodology helps students apply their gained skills efficiently and successfully on their job leading to career growth and increased marketability.

To ensure students maximize their training resources, we bundle our courses together with some of the most powerful job skills required to succeed in the real world. For instance, our Certified Information System Security Professional (CISSP) training course is bundled with a tutorial on project management principles and our Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) training course is bundled with a tutorial on vulnerability scanning. The rationale behind this strategy is these are skills commonly required of employees that function in these roles and the body of knowledge covered by many of these industry certifications is limited in this information. Ultimately, these value-add skills provide the foundation to future learning and certification in those areas.
