Overview

On this accelerated CompTIA Network Security Professional (CNSP) course, you'll learn how to troubleshoot security incidents, manage network vulnerabilities, and protect your business' applications and systems.

In just 9 days, you'll combine theory and practice from CompTIA Security+, Pentest+ and CySA+.

Through the CompTIA Security+, you'll learn about the infrastructure and operational security via building knowledge on risk analysis and mitigation.

You'll build on your security knowledge with Pentest+:

  • Developing up-to-date penetration testing skills
  • Customise assessment frameworks
  • Report penetration test findings
  • Communicate recommended strategies.

Through CySA+ you'll focus on how to configure threat detection tools, perform data analysis and interpret the results to identify vulnerabilities, threats and risks to an organisation.

At the end of your course, you'll sit exams SY0-401, CS1-001 and PTO-001, and achieve the Security+, Pentest+ and CySa+ certifications.

You'll get access to official courseware and learn from certified CompTIA instructors, as Firebrand are a CompTIA Platinum Partner.

Through Firebrand's Lecture | Lab | Review methodology, you'll become a CompTIA Network Security Professional at twice the speed and achieve CompTIA's Stackable Certification.


CompTIA's Stackable Certifications


The Stackable certifications act as a badge that identifies your achievement of multiple CompTIA certifications. The collection of these certifications prove you have the knowledge, competence and experience required for a specific role; in this case, a CompTIA Network Security Professional (CNSP).

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 in just 9 days. 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
  6. You’ll learn 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 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 111,679 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business
