What is the difference between a Short Course and an Online Bootcamp?

An Online Bootcamp Program is an intensive and accelerated learning program made up of a collection of self-paced eLearning components and live online classes that students are required to attend.
The Online Bootcamp program curriculum contain a combination of specifically chosen courses and career-critical skills that are aligned to a job role.

A Short Course on the other hand are shorter courses that is designed to target developing a specific skill set or topic. They generally are much quicker to complete than Bootcamp Programs.


What do Security Specialists do?

IT security specialists are responsible for protecting the data of organisations and of the individuals involved (these including employees, clients, customers, and other stakeholders). They manage access to networks, accounts, and devices; and regularly assess IT environments for any existing or potential security problems. Identifying such issues may be done through methods such as vulnerability scanning, penetration testing/ethical hacking, cryptography, and threat analysis. With cyber crimes on the rise, these professionals earn a generous average salary of $107K AUD in Australia (according to Indeed).

With a CompTIA Security+ certification, you could build the fundamental skills necessary to pursue entry-level opportunities in this growing industry. Through best security practices under their globally-renowned framework, you'll equip yourself with the basics for effectively securing IT environments while verifying your skills as an industry professional.


Who are CompTIA?

The Computing Technology Industry Association (also known as "CompTIA") is an internationally-recognised tech association that issues professional certifications for specialised roles in IT - including areas of cloud computing, networking, and cyber security. A leading body in the field, the organisation currently issues vendor-neutral certificates in over 120 countries, with over 2.5 million certifications now awarded since their establishment. Certified members range from up-and-coming innovators and SMEs to established Fortune 500 leaders.

Having a CompTIA certification under your belt can thus bolster your career in cyber security, helping grant your expertise the industry credibility it deserves.


How do I earn my CompTIA Security+ certification?

Not only will you build a thorough knowledge of cyber security basics, but this course also prepares you for certification under CompTIA. The content is aligned to the CompTIA Security+ SYO-601 examination, which certifies you as a CompTIA security professional when passed.

The CompTIA Security+ SYO-601 exam is comprised of 90 questions and is graded on a scale of 100-900, with 750 being the passing score. The examination will take place over the span of 90 minutes. Those who fail their first attempt can immediately attempt the exam for a second time, though a waiting period of 14 days applies between a failed second attempt and a third attempt.

Your certification is valid for three years from the date of passing your exam. There are no specific pre-requisites to undertake this exam, though students are recommended to have at least two years of experience in IT administration (with a focus on security) and a CompTIA Network+ certification.


How much does a CompTIA certification cost?

Those who undertake this course will receive a free exam voucher. Your voucher is valid for one (1) year from the date of purchasing your course. If you do not book your exam within a year of purchase, you will need to buy another per its actual price.


Is a training course in CompTIA Security+ worth it?

With cyber crimes rising by the year, cyber security professionals are in higher demand than ever. In fact, government statistics report that the Australia needs at least 17,000 more workers in the IT security field by 2026, in order to bridge the growing skills gap. There's therefore never been a better time to forge a career path as a cyber security professional, and with the credibility of a CompTIA Security+ certification, you'll effectively boost your chances in the job market. You'll learn the ins and outs of network security and architecture, along with the in-demand tools and technologies for setting best security practices, protocols, and incident response procedures.

Not only will training for a CompTIA certification arm you with the necessary expertise to succeed in the security field, it also verifies your skills under a reputable, globally-recognised framework. This grants you the competitive edge required to stand out amongst your peers and gain the attention of potential employers.

Security certifications under CompTIA are also known for attracting large salaries, with the qualification drawing an average of $84k AUD per year in Australia (according to Payscale).


How do I become a certified CompTIA Security+ specialist?

Undertaking this CompTIA Security+ training course is a valuable stepping stone for those looking to enter the cyber security field for the first time, or seeking to advance their current security careers. You'll gain a deeper insight into the critical knowledge areas required of any cyber security professional, these including common threats/vulnerabilities, network architecture, solution implementation, compliance, and incident response. Additionally, you'll be training under globally-recognised standards, helping you stand out in the job market among potential employers.

Upon completion of your course, you will have built the skills to pursue CompTIA Security+ certification, further verifying your skills in the industry as a credible security professional.

The clear information and professionalism I experienced in the early stages of researching what course to do was outstanding. The enrollment process was drama free and the learning platform (Canvas) is user-friendly. Only in Week 2 of Dip of Counselling but I am loving it. Thank you Upskilled.


5 star

I Just finished a diploma in counselling and can say that as I hadn't studied for over 20 years, I was very intimidated and nervous. My trainer Ronnie was amazing from the beginning at making me always feel well supported with great feedback. he gave me the confidence I need to get through the course. student support was also great. I enjoyed studying with Upskilled.
