Lanre O
Security Analyst

I joined Smart Learning in April/May last year.I got involved as much as I could because it was a new terrain for me. I started applying for jobs, had quite a decent number of interviews and so were the rejections at different stages. As time went on I was beginning to lose hope especially after much prayer and hard work, interview preps etc. Promotion at my work place made it more difficult as my interest was fading fast. Just as I was about to finally give up, God showed up! Honestly it was on...

Blessing B
Data Privacy Analyst

I made up my mind to transition into the cybersecurity space and in early 2020, I trained with Wale and his team and the journey to jump-in started with excitement. While I was on my previous job, I was looking out for opportunities, sometimes rigorously, sometimes very relaxed. I sought support from Wale, who never hesitated to offer guidance (even during late hours), only to always be met with "unfortunately, bla bla bla". Fast forward to this year, 2023. In May, after a few rejections again, ...

I completed a basic IT course in June of 2022. Finding a job after that was a challenge. I decided to focus on acquiring more knowledge. While on one of my many quests for the best videos on TPRM and ISO 27001, I found an informative recording from SmartLearning taught by Ngozi which confirmed that I knew nothing about ISO 27001. I opted to join the November session. This is the best decision I have made so far towards my IT career. The hands-on projects were the best part of these sessions; the...

I want to first thank God and the team at Smartlearning. God has just blessed me with a contract infosec BA role. The interview was a chat as the interviewer loved my knowledge of security controls and access management. All which I learned from Wale during my GDPR training.

I joined the group mid 2017. At the time I was in an employment situation that was unfulfilling in many ways, but after a referral from a friend I decided to take a leap of faith and see what SmartLearning could offer me in terms of a career change. I then attended the GDPR training webinars and took part in some of the practical project work and during this, I decided to leave my job and dedicate myself full time to learning as much as possible in cyber security. Having come from a non-IT backg...

My sincere appreciation goes to Wale and Tunde for their guidance and encouragement during my training with Smartlearning.It was challenging transiting from nursing to IT.

I joined Smart Learning in April/May last year.I got involved as much as I could because it was a new terrain for me. I started applying for jobs, had quite a decent number of interviews and so were the rejections at different stages. As time went on I was beginning to lose hope especially after much prayer and hard work, interview preps etc. Promotion at my work place made it more difficult as my interest was fading fast. Just as I was about to finally give up, God showed up! Honestly it was on...

I later went to do my CC exam and passed. I also landed a Network Security Architecture role with a Bank leading a major network segmentation project to enabl...

After signing the contract I was told I was no longer needed because the company didn’t have lots of projects coming. I felt shattered. I picked myself up and started re applyi...

I made up my mind to transition into the cybersecurity space and in early 2020, I trained with Wale and his team and the journey to jump-in started with excitement. While I was on my previous job, I was looking out for opportunities, sometimes rigorously, sometimes very relaxed. I sought support from Wale, who never hesitated to offer guidance (even during late hours), only to always be met with "unfortunately, bla bla bla". Fast forward to this year, 2023. In May, after a few rejections again, ...
