Details of the Programs

Brief Recap - How the Programs Work

As we previously explained, our programs are, in essence, very simple and are made up of three components:

  1. The Apprentice (You)
  2. NC-Expert
  3. The Employer

These three elements constantly interact and work together. NC-Expert will help the apprentice find a suitable job (if they do not already have one) and will train them in the technical knowledge required to achieve certifications. The employer will provide the apprentice with on-the-job training and experience which is so essential to gaining a solid foundation. And the apprentice will provide the desire and effort to succeed.

The Apprenticeship Programs

CyberSecurity Support Technician Program

In this program, all apprentices will undertake the same Associate level (year 1) training and will sit the same exams. This enables cohorts to be created, in which apprentices can form study groups and a support network for each other. It is expected that the apprentices will proceed, together, through the Associate and Professional level (year 2) training and examinations.

If the apprentice decides to exit the program at the end of year 1, they will have gained a good foundation in technology and would be able to secure employment using the skills and certifications gained during year 1 training.

Upon successful completion of the Professional level (year 2), apprentices can choose to either graduate from the program, or can elect to remain in the program for the Master level (year 3) in which the bar will again be raised for the training and certification exams.

The Master level is aimed at apprentices (who will now have achieved full employment) who are, ultimately, looking to achieve a VP, Director, or C-level Executive career depending on their individual experience.

Example industry certifications to be gained during year 1:
CompTIA Administrator Plus (A+)
CompTIA Network Plus (N+)
Cisco-Certified Entry Network Technician (CCENT)
CWNP Certified Wireless Technology Specialist (CWTS)*
CWNP Certified Wireless Network Administrator (CWNA)
EC-Council Certified Network Defender (CND)
Cisco CCNA Routing & Switching

Note: Courses listed are not in specific order and additional technical and/or soft-skills courses may be provided.

Information Technology Infrastructure Engineer Program //or// Network Engineer Program

In these two programs, which are almost identical, all candidates will undertake the same Foundation year (year 1) training and will sit the same exams during their first year. Upon successful completion of the Foundation year, candidates will be invited to select their option for their Specialization year (year 2).

If the apprentice decides to exit either of these programs at the end of year 1, they will have gained a good foundation in technology and would be able to secure employment using the skills and certifications gained during year 1 training.

The Specialization year focuses on the specific technology selected and provides more advanced certification training in those technologies and graduation from the program is achieved following successful completion of the year 2 program.

Example industry certifications to be gained during year 1:
Cisco-Certified Entry Network Technician - CCENT
CWNP Certified Wireless Network Administrator - CWNA
Cisco CCNA Routing & Switching
Cisco CCNA Wireless
CompTIA Security Plus - S+
EC-Council Certified Network Defender - CND
Cisco CCNA Cyber Ops
Cisco CCNA Cloud

Note: Courses listed are not in specific order and additional technical and/or soft-skills courses may be provided. Multiple classes and/or examination passes may be required to earn one certification (i.e., Cisco CCNP level certifications).

S+ is not included in the Network Engineer Program

Important Note for all Programs: NC-Expert reserves the right to amend programs and substitute courses/certifications where necessary in order to make sure the Apprentice has the most relevant and/or employer-desired portfolio possible, by time of graduation.
