Certified Secure Computer User (CSCU)
At A Glance
The Certified Secure Computer User course provides students with the fundamental knowledge about cyber security, and the main threats to data security. Students are equipped with the basic expertise that helps them keep their devices and data secure in daily life – whether it is for work, study, or home. Students will learn how to keep their information secure in both online and offline environments.
Courseware provided in partnership with EC-Council.
To achieve the CSCU Micro-Credential, course participants have 60 calendar days to challenge the CSCU exam via EC-Council, and to submit a copy of their exam certificate to LifelongLearning@mitt.ca. Extensions for writing the exam and/or providing the exam certificate will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and may be subject to an administration fee of $100.
Students should be aware that if they persue an occupation in cyber security they should be able to successfully pass a criminal record check at the organization they wish to work for.
