About this course

In light of current events the Defence Cyber School is working hard to enable delivering this Cyber Foundation Pathway Module remotely via the Defence Learning Environment (DLE). This is not yet available for M6 but please check back for dates.
Once established, the courses will run on the planned dates as an instructor supported remote learning package via DLE, audio and text chat sessions. 
Please note we are currently unable to offer the M6 exam.

This course is part of the Cyber Foundation Pathway, building on the technical skills learned in modules 1 to 5 and combining them all to attack and defend networks. You will take part in a series of network scenarios, discovering weaknesses and vulnerabilities and exploiting them to gain access to systems and services.
