About the course

CAPSLOCK Cyber Security Bootcamp
Provided by CAPSLOCK
 
Introduction
 
The CAPSLOCK Cyber Security Bootcamps are intensive and rigorous retraining courses, designed to fully re-skill adult learners into qualified cyber professionals in as little at 4 months. There are no up-front costs involved as we use Income Share Agreements (more on this later). And no, you don’t need existing cyber knowledge to apply. This makes our courses ideal for cyber security beginners, but they are also suitable for IT professionals looking to up-skill.
 
The education is delivered live online by industry professionals, via a revolutionary curriculum built around in-demand job roles and employer needs. The idea is to combine the academic rigour of a master’s degree with the speed and practicality of a bootcamp, allowing learners to enter the cyber security industry with high quality cyber knowledge and experience.
 
Curriculum and Learner Experience 
 
During your time on the CAPSLOCK course, you will attend over 400 hours of live, instructor-led tuition and have full access to our digital campus and virtual cyber labs. You have the option to attend the live classes on a full-time basis which takes 16 weeks (Mon-Friday, 09:30-14:30), or part-time which takes 26 weeks (evenings and Saturdays). The curriculum was built by the former lecturers who developed the cyber security master’s degree for the University of Bradford. Topics on the course cover technical skills like ethical hacking and cloud security, as well as “softer” skills like compliance and governance. 
 
Certifications
 
The course also includes 4 well-respected and highly sought-after cyber qualifications: CompTIA Security+, ISO 27000 Foundation, CISMP and CSSK. It’s an all-in-one package that helps you re-train in cyber and gain industry recognised certifications. You will also have the opportunity to interview with our employment partners such as BT, Lloyds Bank, and Dell, who are keen to look at CAPSLOCK graduates.
 
INCOME SHARE AGREEMENTS AND TUITION OPTIONS
 
And the best bit? You don’t have to pay for any of it up-front. Rather than charging learners a tuition fee, we use the Income Share Agreement (ISA) model. You simply pay back 15% of your monthly income for 36 months after the course, but only once you are earning over £27,000 a year. ISAs are not classed as personal debt. They always stay affordable, and re-payments are paused if your income drops below £27,000. You’ll never pay back more than £19,000. The Financial Conduct Authority have backed CAPSLOCK to pilot this model in 2021.  There are other funding options too, such as a student loan. You also have the option to pay up front if you can. The up-front fee is £10,000.
 
Removing financial barriers by using ISAs mean that anyone can apply to CAPSLOCK. You don’t need a degree, A-levels, or specific cyber experience, and you don’t need to fork out large fees up-front. We simply want applicants who are passionate about technology, willing to learn, and motivated to change their career.
