"Getting a cybersecurity course is a really huge advantage as it is really in demand. And on top of that, you will also learn about Certified Ethical Hacker and Certified Network Defender which, apart from only textbooks to read, and they also provide items for you to practice. This can prepare you further. If you're looking for a good career puff, join Training Vision and take up this cybersecurity course."

Muhammad Syazan Bin Abdulla
Learner, Advanced Diploma in Cybersecurity

“I did some research and found that Training Vision provided basic but more in-depth training in cybersecurity. I like the fact that we have face-to-face classes. It encouraged discussions that cannot be done easily during online sessions. I don’t mind the career switch. After finishing this course, I do look forward to joining something related to cybersecurity so that I can practice on it.”
