How long it takes to become a cyber security expert, can depend on a few things, such as:
- How much you already know about IT.
- What type of cyber security certification you’re studying toward.
- How many hours you’re dedicating toward your studies each week.
Some cyber security courses take longer to complete than others. There are cyber security course packages aimed at beginners that lead to recognised and well-respected certifications. These course packages can be completed within 12 months providing you can dedicate around 10-12 hours per week to your studies.
