My school is right now offering a "Cyber Security" course that specialization in the topic. The class description advertises a certification advantageous in the sector known together "Security Pro". 

Link here: http://www.testout.com/home/it-certification-training/purchasing/labsim-isbns

I would like to know if everyone has any kind of experience v this company, "Test Out" or any of your programs, and I would prefer to understand if this class would be beneficial to study. I"m not too certain what the course will be like, together things are still being collection up v the school, therefore I"m in search of information before I"m enrolled permanently. 

Thank girlfriend for any type of input.

I chose to "Live Chat" through them due to the fact that I had nothing rather to do.

This attach might aid you know the "Security Pro" better.

You are watching: Security pro certification

P.S- lock teach the really basics under the "Security Pro". I would rename it together "Security Padawan" or probably go as far as calling the "Security Intermediate". Not "Security Pro"

From what ns read, their computer Pro and Network Pro room based off A+ and Network+. I"m walking to assume their protection Pro is based off Sec+. 

Now if it were me, I"d just acquire the Sec+. However you may want to download the exam missions for the Sec+ and compare them to the ingredient for their Sec Pro. You might use it as a prep class for the Sec+.

I simply finished a class at my regional branch college, the food itself to be useful, and also the exam wasn"t terrible... Now I"m curious why it"s bring away "Testout" so long to obtain me a copy of the certification... It"s been around a month and also a half now.

Start through Security+, GSEC, GPEN, CISSP. This should be plenty to begin with. In fact- friend can already start learning. Create a lab- 2 or much more devices, VMs, switches(optional). Produce a DMZ and research how to find vulnerabilities on a operation System, Network, internet Application security and also so on.

I have never heard that it, the page you linked shows the it is ready for the SY0-401 though, which is the brand-new CompTIA Security+ exam.

If it to be me, I would skip the class and also self-study because that the Security+ instead. The CompTIA ingredient is certain entry-level, you"ll be just fine.

Good luck!

If that the exact same as Sec+ i would simply go with that for the basic fact it is much more widely known.

Security+ is a good starting place, market recognised etc.

See more: Amc Dine-In Holly Springs 9

The Cisco Certs are great but you need to have the CCNA together a starter, and a much more network (tcp-ip/switch) related rather than going additional up the protocol start and also physical/algorithms etc

CISSP you require 4 years commercial protection experience (and a relavent degree) or 5 years experience if no degree
