Hackers SM Farm

South Eastern Regional College (SERC) is recruiting candidates for an intensive Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) qualification, fully funded under the Department for Economy’s Skills Intervention Programme, commencing June 7.

Certified Ethical Hacker v11 will be delivered online by SERC, the first NI College of FE to become an Academic Partner and Accredited Training Centre with E-Council, the world’s leading provider of technical cyber security certifications.

Richard Sittlington, Curriculum Man-ager and CEH at SERC, said: “The CEH credential is the most trusted certification, recommended by employers globally, and is recognised as the standard within the information security community.

“To beat a malicious hacker, information security professionals need to think like a hacker, and this course will introduce the latest hacking techniques, tools and exploits so that the CEH is better positioned to set up security infrastructure and defend against future attacks in what is becoming an increasingly important area of IT expertise.”

The course comprises six full days of teaching on Monday and Thursday, 9am-5pm, from Monday, June 7 through to Thursday, June 24.

Candidates will be required to undertake self-directed learning during July in preparation for a final examination in August.

This is a specialised qualification and applicants must have a minimum Level 4 IT qualification to be eligible.

Beverley Harrison, Director of Further Education, Department for Economy, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for someone to fast track and pick up a highly sought-after qualification under the Skills Intervention Programme aimed at reskilling people who have been furloughed, made redundant or have had their employment opportunities affected by Covid-19.

“It will help prepare candidates for the return to their current employment or facilitate a move to new employment – both options are necessary to rebuild the Northern Ireland economy.”
