About Certifications

Find out more about cybersecurity certifications in this FAQ

Do you issue certifications?

For the Career Essentials Program, we do not issue or facilitate the attainment of entry-level cybersecurity certifications such as the CEH or CompTIA Security+, as those certifications only provide a brief understanding of cybersecurity from a theoretical point of view. We focus heavily on teaching the technical skillsets that allow individuals to gain employment in the industry. We issue a certification of completion together with the transcript for employers to assess our graduate's technical capabilities. For the VIP package, students will have the opportunity to take the OSCP or BTL2 certificate.

Do I need certifications to get a job?

For entry-level roles, certifications are not compulsory. Almost all of our graduates who secured a career after our training did so based on their technical abilities and in-depth understanding of cybersecurity.

How useful or important are the Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) and CompTIA Security+ certifications?

The training for these certifications help to provide a basic understanding of the terms and theoretical concepts if cybersecurity. However, it is inadequate in helping you gain the practical cybersecurity skills necessary to secure an entry-level role in the industry.
