Producing competent cyber operators capable of solving high-value problems can cost up to $500,000 USD per person in training, equipment, and mentoring. Furthermore, it would usually take such a person 5 to 10 years of professional experience to acquire the ways of working and ways of thinking required to succeed in the field.
The vast majority of cyber training and certifications are theoretical. Students must remember concepts from books to pass Multiple-Choice-Question Tests (MCQs). In some cases, students are allowed to bring their books to the exam. Some of them cheat by paying a professional to take the exam in their place.
MCSI's Online Learning Platform is 95% more cost-effective and we achieve results in 2 years that otherwise would take 10. Our Institute guarantees these results because it is not possible for students to cheat on our platform.
