Do I need any experience?
All you need is an open mind. You don’t need experience. You don’t need to have been to university. All you need to have is curiosity, competent IT skills and a willingness to learn new things. Maybe you want a new direction? Maybe you want to upskill? Maybe you want a raise or promotion in your current role? Click Start gives you the head start you need.
How do I get started?
Most of our courses will be run on IBM’s online ‘Skillsbuild’ platform. They are all free and most are fully remote. We have selected the best of IBM’s digital skills training courses to help you find the right course for you.
The courses you can choose from include Security Operations Pathway, Cyber Security Consulting Pathway, Network Security Pathway, and the Penetration Testing Pathway.
The course is currently underway.
How much is it?
If you meet the eligibility criteria, then it’s completely free. And no, there’s no catch. These courses are delivered by the University of Abertay in partnership with IBM in order to fill the UK’s digital skills gap. They are part of the Click Start programme, which is developed by the IoC and funded by Nominet.
Do I get a qualification?
At the end of your short course, you’ll receive a certificate of completion from the University of Abertay.
Depending on the course you chose, you may be able to undertake further qualifications, such as the COMPTIA PenTest+ Certification.
Am I eligible?
Salute My Job is designed to support the Armed Forces community. The aim is to give you specialist skills and qualifications that will open-up new opportunities. Or give you better pay. Or simply help you do what you want to do in life.
Specific entry requirements depend on whether you are applying for the Security Operations, Cyber Security Consulting, or Network Security courses. However, all courses are only open to ex-servicemen and women and their partners.
