Is CSSRL's training methodology different from conventional courses?

Image
CSSRL is a cyber security workforce development company which provides various cyber security training programs to bridge the skill gap between academics and the industry requirements today. These training programs are available in regular classroom as well as virtual classroom mode. 
Earlier in 2017, we published a blog on  Why CSSRL's Virtual classroom methodology is different from typical "online courses" . But over a period of time, based on the queries of many prospective trainees, we realised that a significant section of that perceive us as someone conducting conventional training courses.

What CSSRL looks for while hiring Security Evangelists

Image
CSSRL, being a Cyber Security Workforce Development company offers various training programs to bridge the gap between the current academics and the workforce requirement by the IT industry at large. For providing this training, which is mainly focused on practical hands-on as well as basic concepts in various domains, CSSRL employs Security Evangelists who can guide the enrolled trainees.

We receive a lot of job applications, from applicants willing to become trainers / evangelists at CSSRL, some willing to offer their services on part time basis, while some who have cleared certification exams or having teaching experience in an engineering college.

To deliver our training methodology, CSSRL hires only committed full time trainers, who have chosen Security Evangelism as The career for them.

Those who are passionate for training, mentoring and creatin…
