I recently completed the BTEC 5 in Cyber Investigations and found the entire experience delightful.

The level of detail and information delivered by the very knowledgeable trainers was second to none. The training team are available for additional support when needed and happy to answer any questions throughout the training. After completing the course I feel confident to use the new skills and knowledge I acquired which I am already seeing positively impacting my current role. I would highly recommend the course, tutors and La Touche Training if you are looking to develop your skills and understanding of Cyber Investigations.
