The training path of the Power Grid pilot was based on the successful delivery of twelve training modules. These modules made up the FORESIGHT Power Grid training curricula and were organized into three levels (Beginner, Intermediate and Advance).
After the successful completion of P1-P5 modules a trainee is entitled to Cybersecurity Awareness for the Power Grid domain (CAP) Certification.
After a trainee acquires the CAP certification, he/she can enroll to Intermediate level Training Modules. Following the successful completion of P6-P9 modules, a trainee is entitled to Intermediate Cybersecurity for the Power Grid domain (ICP) Certification, and he/she can enroll in the advanced training curriculum.
Following the successful completion of P10-P12 modules, a trainee is entitled to Cybersecurity Professional for the Power Grid domain (CPP) Certification.
The training schedule of the Power Grid pilot was performed over two weeks. During the first week, the training delivery of the P1 – P7 components was conducted, corresponding to the beginner level certification and the delivery of two modules from the intermediate level certificate. In the second week, the remaining of the intermediate training curricula was taught. The power Grid training curriculum concluded with the advanced hands-on exercises on the Cyber Range.
After completing the related modules of the Power Grid pilot, the participants submitted a module-specific feedback form, that was used to evaluate the material and the training methods that were implemented. Five of the registered users managed to successfully complete all the related modules of the full Power Grid training path reaching to the Cybersecurity Professional (CPP) advanced-level certificate.
