How do the programmes work?
PGI Cyber Academy work with you to design a training programme to fit your operational requirements – either by very specific job roles or across a range of similar skills requirements. Within your current workforce we can either identify suitable staff for applying to new roles or we can assess recommended staff for aptitude and appetite.
We confirm a schedule, dates and locations and get to work. Our programmes begin with an introduction to the industry, its terminology and context. We then enter a period of technical upskilling before focussing on key areas within cyber or information security. Our trainers apply their operational expertise and support in a mentoring capacity during the entirely of the programme.
About our trainers
Our operational staff bring experiences from UK Government, law enforcement, military, financial, critical infrastructure and commercial sector experience to the learning environment. They keep their cyber security knowledge up-to-date through operational work delivering consultancy and technical services, such as UK Government approved Incident Response and Penetration Testing. Our staff are also accredited as trainers by the UK Government.
This expertise informs the design and delivery of our training programmes to ensure learners receive appropriate baseline knowledge for entering the cyber security industry.
