Thanks paper82. How about the below ones from SP & TP? Tks!

(w)ww.tp.edu.sg/courses/part-time-courses/industry/ict-and-media/specialist-diploma-in-information-security-and-forensics#tab2

(w)ww.sp.edu.sg/pace/courses/course-type/part-time-and-post-diplomas/specialist-diploma-in-cyber-security-management

Am actually more incline towards a more hands on cert.
Hi aeth3r ,

TP is technical but not for beginner level . What they teach you only can apply 60% in assignment and exam . The rest you need to research your self . This course more for advance student . This course u need to know scripting .If you dont have basic skill better dont join else you will suffer.

SP is technical but teaching method is noob friendly . What they teach 80% you can apply in exam and assignment . Suitable for those who know little bit of linux , Network and VM experience . If dont have background also can try ,just finish all the exercise and assignment will enough you to pass. For me i think Stress-less and enjoyable .

SP also have another 2.5years cyber sec course which i think more all rounded .( i will recommend this course if you have extra time to spend )

https://www.sp.edu.sg/pace/courses/c...cyber-security)


Summary :
If you want to go management route : NYP
If you want to go technical but from Beginner : SP
If you want to go technical but advance a bit : TP

If you really want hand-ons and knowledge . Poly only can provide fundamental . you also can self study like take OSCP which i recommend you at least have 20 HTB experience /20 vulhub experience before take up this course. Their training material is not user friendly and you need to have a lot of research and try harder spirit .

You also can go for eLearnSecurity PTS -> PTP : i highly recommend cause their training material is top notch . At least not easy give up and have fun and most important you gain knowledge .

Thank you for your time & breakdown of each.

I actually competed PTS and enrolled in PTP but am concerned that their cert isnít as well recognised in SG hence would like to take additional local poly cert to supplement it since I did not have any local deg/poly dip anyways.

OSCP would be e ultimate goal, but not now for sure.

Guess Iíve to decide between NYP or TP. Haha.

Hi aeth3r,

Sad that Singapore is not recognized eLearnSecurity Cert yet .
i think SP and TP is not suitable for u If you already enrolled PTP.
SP = PTS level
TP = may be PTS ++ but not PTP level yet .
NYP = CISSP prep

But if you just want to get a cert then just can go ahead and choose one nearby your house and stress-less one . Then you can put more time on PTP > OSCP .

One thing good about NYP security cert you can apply AISP member ( Singapore infoc sec) if im not remember wrongly .

Thanks paper82.

If thatís the case, I think NYP is the best for complementing with PTP as I will get to touch on diff domains, like governance and such.
