In order to become certified in one of the two Darktrace paths, Cyber Engineer or Cyber Analyst, you must take the appropriate modules, as outlined in the diagram. Note that the Threat Visualizer Parts 1 and 2 provide foundational knowledge and are essential to both paths.
By attending the public classes, you will have the opportunity to complete attendance tests following the webinars. On the completion of each course test, you will be able to proceed towards certification. Material can be reviewed on-demand via the instructional eLearning videos and revising from the comprehensive training manuals can equip you further to sit the appropriate examination.
Both certifications require you to undertake two examinations. In each case you will first need to pass the theory element, which consists of multiple-choice style questions. Successful candidates will then be expected to display their practical skills in our hands-on lab environment. All exams are proctored by a Darktrace instructor and can be registered for via the Customer Portal.
