SANS Institute to host 3rd Bahrain Cyber Reskilling Program

SANS Institute, the global leader in cybersecurity training and certifications, has just opened the third edition of its Cyber Reskilling Program in Bahrain, in partnership with The Labour Fund (Tamkeen).  The registration window is open now and closes on the 19th of June 2023.

The SANS Cyber Reskilling Program aims to identify, educate, and rapidly reskill individuals in just eight weeks, with comprehensive foundational training from the world’s leading industry experts. Participants will undertake three SANS courses and achieve two GIAC certifications – the industry-renowned GSEC and GCIH. Once they have completed the program, successful graduates are well suited for a range of entry-level cybersecurity roles in security analyst teams, junior penetration testing, forensics, management & policy, and junior incident response.

Ned Baltagi, Managing Director META at SANS Institute commented: “This program truly bolsters students with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in the cybersecurity field, ensuring graduates are highly prepared and ready to make an impact.”

The program benefits cybersecurity employers in the region, too. Previous graduates of the Cyber Reskilling Program have secured roles at established companies such as CTM360, Citibank, Gulf Air, Beyon Cyber, Y.K Almoayyed and Sons, and Zendata. Potential employers that partner with SANS Institute on the Cyber Reskilling Program have the opportunity to gain priority access to emerging Bahraini cybersecurity talent as well as to a host of networking sessions with SANS Certified Instructors and industry-leading cybersecurity specialists.

Baltagi added: “Employers benefit from access to our dedicated, specialist recruiter, who works with employers to connect them to the right ‘reskilled’ candidate, for their organisational needs.”
