CND Certified Network Defender EC-Council Official Training

On this accelerated EC-Council Certified Network Defender v2 course, you will develop your understanding of network security technologies and operations.

In just 4 days, you’ll learn about the tools, technologies and techniques needed to defend and strengthen your network against a new age of hackers. You’ll also learn valuable skills like how to:

  • Establish network security policies and procedures
  • Set up mobile and IoT device security
  • Determine cloud and wireless security

At the end of this accelerated course, you’ll sit the EC-Council Certified Network Defender (CND) 312-38 exam, and achieve your EC-Council Certified Network Defender v2 certification.

As an Accredited Training Partner (ATP) you’ll get access to official courseware, exams and be trained by certified instructors. Firebrand’s Lecture | Lab | Review methodology means you’ll achieve your certification in record time and be back in the office.


The CND v2 is ideal for all cybersecurity roles and anyone looking to build a career in cybersecurity, especially those working in one of the following roles:

  • Network administrator/engineer
  • Network security administrator/engineer/analyst
  • Cybersecurity engineer
  • Security analyst
  • Network defence technician
  • Security operator


Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online courses
  2. You'll be certified fast. With us, you’ll be trained in record time
  3. Our course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams**, accommodation* and meals*. No hidden extras.
  4. Pass 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
