Best of all, Cerco's FastTrack is FREE to attend.

On successful completion of your FastTrack training, we will onboard you as a Field Engineer and look to place you out to work with our employment partners.
Our employment partners operate in numerous sectors and offer a variety of roles. Typical roles include: Break-Fix engineering, EPOS Installation and 1st line support.
At this stage we will invite you to join Fortinet's NSE training and certification program which constitutes the first phase of Cradle to Cyber.
The first stage of Cradle to Cyber will see you complete Fortinet Certified Fundamentals.
This is carried out online and is designed to fit comfortably alongside your employment.
In addition, we will provide some valuable research materials that will compliment your training with Fortinet.
We will continually assess your progress with Fortinet’s Certified Fundamentals and after a period of time will invite you to extend your training into stage 2 through Fortinet Certified Associate. Typically, this can be after 6 months of working for us.
With Fortinet Certified Fundamentals and Fortinet Certified Associate under your belt, we will look to develop your training further with Fortinet Certified Professional.
As a Cerco Cradle to Cyber trainee we will fully fund your training at this stage.
At this stage focus will switch to more advanced contract opportunities that are more relevant to Cyber Security. These roles could include; Network engineering, Data analysis or 2nd Line Support.
Note: Our employment partners may stipulate additional training. If necessary we are able to offer additional training, via our trusted training partner, to include certifications from CompTIA, ITIL, ISACA and Microsoft.
