$40,000 of free training

How our CFTP training boosted businesses to battle back from Covid-19

Helping businesses adapt to the increased demand for secure remote working and workflow automation

As COVID-19 took a hold on the world, businesses everywhere were forced to switch their offices for home studies, and their board meetings for zoom calls. Behind the scenes, we recognised the growing need for secure file transfer and business process automation. So we embarked upon a plan to give away our Certified File Transfer Professional (CFTP) training programme, completely free of charge.

Over 136 engineers signed up and completed the course – which equates to over $40,000 of free training!

Thanks to this offer, a huge group of employees have been able to continue developing their careers in lockdown, and are now better equipped to tackle the lingering economic challenges of COVID-19.

Managing Director James Lewis says, “I am delighted with the success of this promotion and the positive impact it will have on so many businesses, both now and in the future.”

Although the course is no longer available for free, there are still a whole host of reasons why the CFTP is a fantastic investment for IT professionals wanting to learn new skills or certify their knowledge:

1. The CFTP certifies your existing file transfer knowledge

CPD accreditation means the learning value and structure of the course meets the rigorous standards of the CPD Certification Service. Users who pass the exam will be be able to add the course to their CPD record, recognising their knowledge of file transfer.

Secure and managed file transfer is becoming an increasingly important component in IT infrastructure. Knowledge gained from the CFTP helps organisations address GDPR and PCI-DSS compliance, plus FIPS 140-2 certification, HIPAA, SOX and GLBA. That’s why the course has proved popular with finance, insurance, consulting and many other sectors. Participants also learn how the technology improves business efficiency, freeing up resources, streamlining business operations and reducing human error.

“The secure transfer of files and personally identifiable data needs to be done correctly,” explained James. “Our aim for CFTP is to give IT professionals the file transfer training they need to implement secure file transfer into their organisations whilst giving a professional certification to the learner. With an understanding of the technology, CFTP qualified staff help organisations to stay compliant, improve efficiency and save time.”

The course is delivered online through downloadable study resources and video lessons, ending with an online open book exam. It takes users through file transfer concepts, basic and advanced protocols, accelerated file transfer, file sync & share, encryption and more.

“Pro2col are independent data transfer and file sharing specialists and I’ve made no secret of my aim for us to be the best at what we do, worldwide,” James said. “This acquisition is an exciting step for Pro2col and the CFTP programme. To be responsible for training file transfer engineers across the world is testament to the knowledge and expertise of our technical consultants.”
