CertNexus Cyber Secure Coder

On this accelerated 2-day Cyber Secure Coder (CSC) course, you'll learn how to identify and remedy software security breaches and vulnerabilities - 40% faster than traditional training. 

Become a Cyber Secure Coder and build secure architecture for your software, helping your business grow and keep internal data protected.

You'll be immersed in the curriculum through Firebrand's unique Lecture | Lab | Review technique, which allows you learn and retain information faster.

Your expert instructor will introduce tools and tactics used to manage cyber security risks, teaching you to understand and integrate technologies from a range of different vendors and how to combat the security risks involved. You'll gain a new, specialised set of skills working with a variety of software, Python, HTML and more.

On this all-inclusive accelerated course, you'll learn how to:

  • Identify the need for new security in software
  • Eliminate vulnerabilities by using a Security by Design approach
  • Implement protections for user data
  • Apply various tests to uncover and correct security defects and maintain current software

With these skills, you'll be a valuable asset - enabling your business to keep up with demands for connectivity and application development by ensuring software and applications are safe from increasingly severe cyber threats.

During this course, you'll not only build on your current skill set, but also prepare for and sit the CertNexus Cyber Secure Coder exam (CSC-110), covered by your Certification Guarantee.

This course is designed for software developers, testers and architects. However, feel free to enrol if you have interest in furthering your learning and developing more skills in these areas.

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online CSC courses
  2. You'll be CSC certified in just 2 days. With us, you’ll be CSC trained in record time
  3. Our CSC course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  4. Pass CSC first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  5. You’ll learn more. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
  6. You’ll learn CSC faster. Chances are, you’ll have a different learning style to those around you. We combine visual, auditory and tactile styles to deliver the material in a way that ensures you will learn faster and more easily
  7. You’ll be studying CSC with the best. We’ve been named in Training Industry’s “Top 20 IT Training Companies of the Year” every year since 2010. As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified 108394 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business


Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.

Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.

Firebrand Training provides instruction to meet every learning need:

  • Intensive group instruction
  • One-on-one instruction attention
  • Hands-on labs
  • Lab partner and group exercises
  • Question and answer drills
  • Independent study

This information has been provided as a helpful tool for candidates considering training. Courses that include certification come with a certification guarantee. Pass first time or train again for free (just pay for accommodation and exams on your return). We do not make any guarantees about personal successes or benefits of obtaining certification. Benefits of certification determined through studies do not guarantee any particular personal successes.
