CCT: Certified Cybersecurity Technician

Short Description

The Certified Cybersecurity Technician (C|CT) is an entry-level cybersecurity program created by EC-Council, the creator of the Certified Ethical Hacker (C|EH) certification, to address the global demand for a qualified cybersecurity workforce. EC-Council developed the C|CT to provide individuals starting their careers in IT and cybersecurity with a certification that validates their hands-on technical skills. To equip individuals with the skills they need to pursue and develop their careers as cybersecurity specialists, consultants, network engineers, IT administrators, and more.

Full Description

C|CT’s Key Offerings:

 Strong Foundational Coverage
The C|CT certification provides total foundational cybersecurity domain coverage with key concepts in each domain combined with practical hands-on labs and critical thinking challenges producing world-class cyber security technologists.

 Live Range Experience
Other popular programs rely on simulation and interactivity as practical-based assessment, the C|CT program is delivered on a live Cyber Range utilizing live targets and real attack systems for a truly immersive, real-life practice and assessment platform.

 Capture the Flag
The C|CT certification offers capture the flag (CTF) style critical thinking challenges to accompany each lab exercise putting knowledge into practice and providing a proven record of skill demonstration. Candidates completing the C|CT program will earn the C|CT certification and have a proven track record of performing the tasks required in a live Cyber Range, proving to employers their ability to perform critical job duties.

 Multiple Certifications
The course outline of the C|CT program goes above and beyond some of the more common entry-level cybersecurity programs, such as the Security+, in a completely hands-on cyber range environment instead of simulations to ensure cybersecurity skills development. We believe that candidates who successfully attain the C|CT certification will attain other leading cybersecurity certifications, including Security+, without further training

 Most Affordable
Despite the unique design of the heavily hands-on course and its uses of real-world cyber range capability, the certification is one of the most affordable in the world!
