CompTIA Security+ Course

The SECURITY+ course equips participants with practical “Hands-on” skills relevant to the workplace and the theory required for certification


The CompTIA SECURITY+ Course is designed to provide trainees with the baseline skills necessary to perform core security IT functions.

Duration and Schedule

The course runs over 5 days… The next course commencing on Friday 13th September at 10.00 am.

A payment of €100 secures your place on your chosen course. The balance of the course fees of €700 can be paid shortly before course commencement.

Online Virtual Classroom – how it works?

The course will be delivered through blended training consisting of 5 Online Virtual Classroom sessions. During the Online Virtual Classroom sessions, you will have a live video feed you’re your instructor talking to you, doing practical live demonstrations and facilitating your participation with them in the live interactive Lab through the Online Platform.

Labs Overview: -

The experience you gain from our virtual live labs accelerates skills development and is unlike any other online training – it is live (not simulated). While, in today's world, that might currently be a distant dream, you can still gain hands-on practical work experience using our live technology instead.

Through individual logins, the labs provide access to real hardware through the Online Platform to: -

  • Carry out many different IT tasks
  • Develop and Practice Skills required in the real world of Technical IT
  • Build your Skill Levels and Confidence
  • Practice your Digital and IT skills within a safe, live-lab environment.
  • Provide step-by-step exercises to complete each module

In preparation for this, we plan to have a quick informal online meeting a few days before course commencement for about an hour just to make sure that people get connected properly, let you know what the online virtual classroom and interactive labs will be like and go through any questions you may have. To join the virtual sessions, you will need a PC/Laptop or Tablet with an internet connection. Joining instructions (login IDs, etc) will be sent before the Informal Induction session.
