Training Vision Institute is partnering with EC-Council to provide an Advanced Diploma in Cyber Security, as part of the 2021 in-demand skill sets required in the workforce. The collaboration aims to promote a quality and in-depth cybersecurity course and elevate the very popular industry in Singapore. Singapore’s Smart Nation initiative, plus the growing need to go digital because of COVID-19, have increased the demand for cybersecurity professionals who can effectively protect Singapore from disruptive cyber attacks.
Learners who complete the Advanced Diploma in Cyber Security will receive three cybersecurity certifications from EC-Council alongside the Training Vision Institute diploma.
“It is an important collaboration to put Singaporeans ahead in the South East Asia (SEA) region for the need for cybersecurity experts with its global recognition. Training Vision Institute (TVI) is proud to be a training partner of EC-Council in Singapore and offer these certifications as part of SSG supported courses. The collaboration aims to ensure that every TVI learner will become a cybersecurity expert and build a career in this very exciting field,” said Branson Lee, HOD Pracademy of Technology.
“This is an important industry-academia collaboration led by Wissen, to bring EC-Council cybersecurity certifications to the students at Training Vision Institute. The partnership will benefit the students by allowing them to earn specialized skills in cybersecurity and acquire leading positions in the growing cybersecurity industry in Singapore. The collaboration will also bring greater opportunities for EC-Council help in filling the talent gap in Singapore,” said Sean Lim, Chief Operating Officer, EC-Council.
The EC-Council cybersecurity certifications are as follows:
Certified Application Security Engineer (CASE) – Tests the critical security skills and knowledge that are required throughout a typical software development life cycle, focusing on the importance of the implementation of secure methodologies and practices in today’s insecure operating environment. CASE is developed to prepare students to effectively join the workforce as software professionals who are able to create secure applications.
Certified Network Defender (CND) – Based on the cybersecurity education framework and work role task analysis presented by the National Initiative of Cybersecurity Education (NICE), CND provides learners with a comprehensive approach to deal with modern security and network issues. This course is also mapped to the Department of Defense (DoD) roles such as system/network administrators, cybersecurity engineer, and network defense technician.
Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) – Renowned as the most trusted ethical hacking certification and recommended by employers globally, CEH is the most desired information security certification. CEH will teach learners the latest commercial-grade hacking tools, techniques, and methodologies used by hackers and information security professionals to lawfully hack an organization.
