What makes us different
The common challenge for cyber talent is the lack of practical experience. Most of cybersecurity training programs are lecture-based. While students can memorize course materials to pass an exam, they rarely apply their knowledge to complete an end-to-end project. In other words, they are not job ready.
We are not just another school or training shop. Our mission is to develop the next-gen talent through the challenge-based learning and team collaboration.
Our Learning-DNS model
- Learning by Doing
- Learning by Networking
- Learning by Sharing
In short, we empower you to achieve the best ROI for your career development!
What industry experts say about our program
President, Cyber Defence Corp
"I have had the opportunity to be a judge for the team presentations in the Cloud Security Experiential Learning Program. I was impressed by the cloud architectures each team built and the level of detail students provided to justify their designs. This is not just another online class; learn, design, build and test your solution while having seasoned SMEs to answer questions."
Security and Cloud Thought Leader
"I attended a few of the sessions at a personal capacity and I was very impressed with the quality of the course and the contents. It truly gives an edge to the students from a theory and practical perspective especially the team projects and competition at the end of the course. Would highly recommend this course for anyone who wants to work in IT Security."
"Cloud security is one of the most sought-after skill set in today's market globally. The experiential learning course provides not only the concepts and fundamentals, but also the hands-on part and practical skills."
What learners say about our program
"It has been a truly invaluable learning experience for me. The collaborative learning approach was very effective and the challenges at the end of every lesson gave me practical experience on cloud.I definitely recommend the Cloud Learning experiential program. Agile learning at its best!"
Quality Engineering Analyst, RBC
"The Cloud Security Experiential Learning Course is a pioneer in the field of innovative practical cyber-security training in the non-academic sphere. As someone who wished to search for a foothold in the cyber-security universe, without prior hands-on experience, this course has given me the opportunity to enhance my experience via a challenging project, detailed coursework and engaged teaching."
Technical Business Analyst, Scotiabank
"The Cloud Security Experiential Learning program helped me cross the bridge between technical learning and hands-on experience so that I could feel empowered and have more impactful conversations, viewing the cloud and platform security from the customers' point of view. It helped me to see cloud security firsthand rather than as bolted on. I understand far better than ever before how to be a part of a full-scale cloud security solution."
Regional Sales Manager, Trend Micro
"The program was truly experiential and challenging and gave me the opportunity to up-level my technical as well as non-technical skills such as team working and leadership skills. Knowing many professionals in the cloud field and having access to the hands-on labs for a year, are excellent assets from this program that will definitely change my work life!"
Ellie Soroush, CISSP
"This was a truly impactful program. Challenge-based learning and team collaboration were effective and unique ways of ensuring mastery of rather complex concepts. I was able to sharpen my technical and soft skills. Moreover, the final project stretched me intellectually and allowed me to consolidate all the cloud concepts learned. It is a high-value program and I would definitely recommend it."
Graduate, Bachelor’s Cognitive Science and Philosophy, University of Toronto
"Enrolling the Cloud Security Experiential Learning program was one of the best decisions I made during #CovidLockdown. The detailed online resources combined with the team discussions held after each session made the difference. The practical project along with a judging panel was a great way to put everything we learned together and get the proper feedback from the top cloud experts in the industry."
