Kelowna, BC (PRWEB) November 20, 2013
Centre for Arts and Technology is pleased to announce that on Monday December 2, it will be offering a Network Security Insight Workshop designed to introduce people to opportunities in training for careers in network security. The workshop will be led by renowned network security expert Muhammad Zubair, Department Head of the Network Security Specialist Program at Centre for Arts and Technology’s Kelowna Campus.
Also kicking off on Monday will be an online challenge that will run for five days, concluding on Friday December 6. The challenge will be a fun interactive “whodunnit” experience in which participants will be distributed clues and tasked with solving a tech-themed mystery. Like the workshop, the challenge is designed as an introductory experience for people wanting to learn more about network security, and is meant to appeal to everyone from high school students (17 and older) to professionals looking to broaden their skills and training.
No previous education or experience in network security are required to participate in either the workshop or the challenge and both are meant to be a fun way to find out more and kick-start careers in network security. The Centre for Arts and Technology is offering these challenges at no cost.
Participants of both the workshop and the online challenge will have the opportunity to earn scholarships for the Network Security programs offered at Centre for Arts and Technology Kelowna in January 2014. 1st Place - $5,000 scholarship, 2nd Place - $3,500 scholarship, 3rd Place - $2,000 scholarship.
