Coaching

I offer coaching services for people seeking to achieve certain internet security certifications.  I have attained and can coach people seeking one of these certifications:

  • Cisco Certified Network Associate
  • Cisco CyberOps Associate
  • CompTIA Security+
  • ISACA Certified Information Security Manager (CISM)
  • ISC2 CISSP

If you are seeking a certification but concerned you won’t be able to pass the assessment; I’m available as a coach. Coaching is where I assess your knowledge  and prescribe the work and you do the work, ask me questions and take more assessments.  Doing that work will help you achieve you goal of becoming certified.

A coaching engagement starts by us meeting and you sharing your goals, your own assessment of your skill level, and agreeing to allow me to assess your skill level.  I will develop and administer an assessment that will allow both of use to know where you stand.

At that point you and I will agree to a schedule that starts on a set date and ends with your achieving that certification.  As part of the assessment I’ll ask how many hours a week you can work towards that certification.  We will meet either weekly or biweekly and together we will assess your progress.

At each meeting we will review material that I prepared for you to study. That material might be my own notes, sections of books I’ll ask you to read, and assessments that I’ll ask you to complete.

I reserve the privilege of checking in on you at any time between meetings.  Especially if I’m concerned that you are not making good progress.

When we meet we will review any questions that you might have about any of the material or assessment questions and if needed set up additional meetings.
