CERTIFICATE IV IN CYBER SECURITY

National ID: 22334VIC | State ID: BCY61

 

Cyber Security skills are in demand!

When you complete the Certificate IV in Cyber Security you will be well suited for in-demand ICT roles such as cyber security support officer, cyber security intrusion tester, security penetration tester, information systems security support officer, or network security support officer.

You will gain the career enhancing knowledge and hands-on practical skills in: cyber security concepts; authentication and encryption; network scripting; professional ethics; and security data analysis. A capstone project applies in the last term to consolidate the skills gained and apply those to an industry scenario.

This is a WA priority skills course so lower tuition fees apply and employment prospects are higher.

The on-campus commitment is approximately two days per week for two semesters. The course is offered at the very accessible Murdoch campus.

Students can enter into further studies including the Diploma of Networking and Advanced Diploma in Network Security, and it may provide entrance into many university courses.

The Centre for IT Excellence (CITE) provides state of the art, industry relevant training in information technology, creative media and electronics. We provide pathways from foundation studies to advanced diploma with specialist training in cyber security, systems and programming.
