What makes CPA unique

Cyber Prep Academy (CPA) provides practical hands-on training, that delivers both short courses and a core 12-week programme, designed to assist ICT professionals to build their proficiency, and experience across all major Cyber Security domains and technologies. Cyber Prep Academy delivers hands-on, real world training, focusing on practical experience in preference to theory.


What it is…

Cyber Prep Academy is a finishing school for students and junior ICT professionals who wish to commence or advance their career in Cyber Security. We provide a hands-on practical experience enabling students to learn the technologies and processes that exist in the working world.

What it is not…

Although we work with Unitec, Cyber Prep Academy is not a substitute for a tertiary qualification. We are fortunate in New Zealand to have a broad range of excellent educational providers. We value these organisations and are mindful of their important contribution to making New Zealand a safer place through Cyber and Info Sec education and learning.
