Module 1 provides essential foundation knowledge in computer networking concepts which is required to be successful for progressing onto further modules of the Cyber Foundation Pathway
The Defence Cyber School (DCS) is offering a blended approach to the delivery of the Cyber Foundation Pathway (CFP) Module 1. This gives students increased flexibility to customise their learning experience.
There are three study options available depending on how you wish to learn:
Self-study online learning: The course content will be made available online through the DLE and is to be used in conjunction with the CFPM1 wiki. Students will work through the content (solo) at their own pace and schedule.
Students wishing to opt for self-study should contact Defence Cyber School via ‘Ask about this course’ making sure to include the service number linked to your DLE account.
Instructor led remote classroom (online): Building on the course materials available online for self-study, this course includes instructor led remote classroom learning. You can expect daily instructor led demonstrations on concepts and toolsets, instructor teaching sessions, group exercises and quizzes; all with the ability to talk to and ask questions of the instructors throughout each day of the module. This course is run via an Adobe Connect online classroom. You can apply via the ‘Apply Now’ button above and selecting dates highlighted as remote delivery.
Classroom based learning: This is a residential option returning to the more traditional way of face-to-face teaching. All the module content will be instructor taught using DCS classroom facilities; whiteboard, DCS network and PowerPoint. This will be conducted at the Defence Academy. You can apply via the ‘Apply Now’ button above and selecting dates highlighted as classroom delivery.
