Charles Sturt University is hosting a free six-week online training course to help students prepare for the Certified Information Systems Security Professional certification.
The IT Masters course which starts next Wednesday was claimed to be comparable to paid offerings worth almost $4000.
Students will be asked to do up to 12 hours of study between webinars in the lead up to a timed open book CISSP practise exam.
IT Masters chief executive Martin Hale said most students would need to do further study to be ready for the CISSP exam.
“The CISSP certification exam is one of the toughest in the industry," Martin said in a statement.
"250 questions over six hours and you need to get at least 70 percent to pass so you really need to make sure you are prepared.”
The course run by Dr Craig Wright will offer free reference materials but students were recommended to buy additional text books.
Students gaining their CISSP certification will gain a credit towards IT security degrees at Charles Sturt University.
The 90 minute weekly webinars run from 12:30 to 2pm AEST each Wednesday.
