Certificate in Cyber Security Intake In South Africa

Certificate in Cyber Security – Online*
(*resident exam terms apply)

The very popular Certificate in Cyber Security offered by the Centre for Cyber Security in the Academy for Computer Science and Software Engineering of the University of Johannesburg will be available from July this year in an online mode.

This makes it possible for any person, anywhere in the world, to register for this Certificate and complete it totally online, including an online examination*.

However, as this is the first time this Certificate will be offered in this way, an examination restriction* will hold for this first offering starting in July . This *restriction will require any student who registers and completes the modules in an online mode, to take the 5 module examinations physically at the University of Johannesburg on the specified examination dates. This means that such students will have to travel to the Auckland Park campus of the University in Auckland Park, Johannesburg, to write and complete the examinations.

We plan that from the beginning of 2020 , this restriction will fall away, and students will be able to complete the examination online from any place. Final arrangements of dates and logistics for writing the examinations online are still being finalized. Online students will be able to contact the Course Coordinator by email to ask questions about the course material – such questions will be directed to the module experts if necessary. The course and study material are specified and provided on the course website – three modules require a prescribed text book.

The ‘Courses’ tab at www.cybersecurity.org.za provides the structure, content and examinations dates of all 5 modules making up the Certificate in Cyber Security (see July (Second) Intake for examination dates). Students completing the examinations and assignments successfully, will receive an official Certificate in Cyber Security from the University of Johannesburg.
