Fortinet makes 24 security courses free Featured

Fortinet has identified 24 "advanced security" courses from amongst its wide training offer to provide for free to anyone who wishes to undertake them.

Topics include "Secure SD-WAN, public cloud security and secure access." These courses were previously free for Fortinet's partners, but now are available to anyone.

John Maddison, EVP of products and CMO at Fortinet, said, "The current reality has forced many organisations to face rapid change and new risks as they've transitioned to remote workforce models.

"IT teams are under pressure to effectively secure their organisations, in very dynamic environments which require broad security skillsets.

"As both a technology company and a learning organisation, we are making our entire online, self-paced catalogue of advanced training courses available for free so that any IT professional can expand timely knowledge and skills on-demand as needed to effectively protect their organisations."

According to the company, "the courses will be free for the remainder of 2020 to help address the rapidly evolving needs of organisations securing highly distributed and remote workforces. These courses also provide students and anyone looking to start a career in cybersecurity the opportunity to learn new skills or upskill."

"By learning about Fortinet technologies, such as FortiGate, FortiNAC and FortiManager, training participants will acquire an array of skills to defend any network against threats. Recorded lab demos for these courses will be available for on-demand viewing and supplemented with regularly scheduled live sessions with Fortinet Certified Trainers. During these live sessions, trainers will be available to demo labs and conduct Q&A sessions. Anyone interested in getting started with Fortinet's free training courses can visit here." 

Since these courses cannot replace the actual hands-on training that a classroom setting will provide, most lab sessions have been video recorded, although the company has promised that "recorded lab demos will be supplemented with regularly scheduled live sessions with Fortinet Certified Trainers who will demo labs and conduct Q&A sessions".
