On this accelerated SABSA - Chartered Security Architect – Foundation Certificate (SCF) course, you’ll learn how to design, deliver and manage enterprise security architectures. You’ll build knowledge on all aspects of enterprise security via the SABSA method to support your business’ scalability.

In just 4 days, you’ll get trained in SABSA’s Institute’s official starting point for developing Security Architecture Competencies. You’ll focus on:

  • The SABSA method, its frameworks, concepts, models and techniques
  • Security needs of your business

At the end of your course, you’ll sit 2 exams for the F1 and F2, and achieve your certification. Through Firebrand’s Lecture | Lab | Review methodology, you’ll get access to official courseware, certified instructors, and train in a distraction-free environment.  

Six reasons why you should sit Firebrand's introduction to the SABSA Framework

  1. You'll be trained in just 4 days.
  2. Our course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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 104,996 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business
  6. You'll do more than study Firebrand's courseware. We use practical exercises to make sure you can apply your new knowledge to the work environment. Our instructors use demonstrations and real-world experience to keep the day interesting and engaging
