    Hi All,

    I am looking for some advice. I have recently been looking at a career change and i have decided to look into the possibility of getting into cyber security. I have been in touch with a company called Robust IT Training who have suggested a package that they offer. I have very limited knowledge of these courses and if what they are offering is value for money or not. I have basic computer knowledge having studied PC maintenance at college about 10 years ago but not ending up in the IT industry.

    Below is the package they have recommended i would really appreciate some feedback on this package and if you think it would be worth it.

    MTA Networking Fundamentals
    MTA Server Fundamentals
    CompTIA Network+
    CompTIA Security+
    CEH v10

    All together the cost of this package is just under £3,000 which is a big investment.

    Thanks in advance and i look forward to hearing your opinions.

    My advice is to self study for these certifications. It's doable and you will save a lot of money.

    Ditto. They may very well be a reputatable company but you can self study for all of those for a fraction of the cost. £300 for study materials then exam costs (guestimates but you get the idea). Save you a fortune and you can ask us for help and advice. Does take more discipline but where there's a will there's a way. Many of us on here are self taught and very successful

    Yeah, you can get all that for free, plus I think you would be wise to work your way up to the security aspect of IT by looking at a helpdesk role if you can get one, then move on after about a year or 2 etc.

    Certifications: BSc computing and information systems
    WIP: 70-680

    What the others have said and also I would not say that is the best certificate path for entry level of security either.

    What part of security do you want to work in?
    Certifications: A few.
