Training Advancement Agenda
Making Cybersecurity Training and Career Opportunities Accessible to Everyone
Training Advancement Agenda (TAA) and the Cybersecurity Skills Gap
Fortinet’s commitment to solving the world’s biggest cybersecurity challenges extends beyond technology to include learning. We continue to make significant progress in helping close the skills gap through our globally recognized NSE Training Institute programs and the Training Advancement Agenda (TAA). By increasing access to critical training, developing cybersecurity career pathways, and connecting individuals to employers, the NSE Training Institute is making big strides in advancing our TAA efforts.
NSE Training Institute and TAA
The Fortinet NSE Training Institute has grown globally to serve all IT and security professionals, as well as individuals interesting in entering the cybersecurity field. Since its inception, the NSE Training Institute has evolved to offer an eight level certification program combined with nearly 400 hours of supporting training curriculum.
The NSE Training Institute’s many programs contribute to our TAA by helping us extend our global reach, enabling us to bring training, certification, and resources to individuals in their local languages, helping support diversity and inclusion, and providing opportunities for employment to all populations.
