The training of trainers for the cybersecurity program is being conducted at Kutaisi International University (KIU). Taking place from July 24 to August 5, this course equips trainers with knowledge about the fundamentals of cybersecurity as well as training and teaching methods. The training is being carried out by a team of international experts and experienced trainers. Upon successfully completing the program, graduates will be offered employment opportunities as trainers at Kutaisi International University."
The project is funded by the USAID Industry-led Skills Development Program, aimed at establishing a comprehensive cyber security training program at KIU and developing a highly skilled workforce in the field of cyber security.
The partnership between USAID and KIU is focused on a shared objective: reducing unemployment. This joint support from both foreign and Georgian partner organizations strengthens KIU's project efforts. As a result, the project involves developing three separate levels of short-term cybersecurity courses. These courses will be available to more than 400 young participants, covering a range of subjects including Cyber Security Fundamentals, Certified Ethical Hacker, and Practical Ethical Hacking Course.
KIU will provide international certification vouchers for graduates who successfully complete the program. To achieve this, the university is collaborating with the US-based International Council of Electronic Commerce Consultants (EC-Council), the world's largest cybersecurity technical certification organization, operating across 145 countries.
