New Cyber Security Apprenticeship launched by FIT

A new Cyber Security Apprenticeship has been launched by Fastrack to Information Technology (FIT) and registration is now open!

Apprentices will complete the apprenticeship programme which is two years in duration, to gain an Advanced Certificate in Cybersecurity at Level 6 in the National Framework of Qualifications.

The FIT Cybersecurity Apprenticeship is the third in a series that have been developed by FIT and delivered in partnership with Educating and Training Boards. The initial two in software development and network engineering are already up and running in Dublin and Cork and expanding rapidly.

FIT’s Cybersecurity Apprenticeship is undergoing national validation and is scheduled for delivery across Ireland from March 2019.

Applicants must be 18 years or older with the eligibility to work and live in Ireland. FIT warmly welcome applications from all genders, and from candidates who may have a physical or hidden disability.

Apprentices will spend the first 6 months in full-time training, and the next 12 months working with their employer for 3 days per week with 2 days of college. The final 6 months will be spent working with their employer 4 days per week with 1 day in college finalising their certification.
