How does TechVets work with Immersive Labs to provide cyber security training?

TechVets training partnership with Immersive Labs has pushed forward an initiative called Cyber Million, which provides gamified, hands-on learning.

The cybersecurity sector is grappling with a significant talent gap. It’s estimated that around 3.4 million security positions are unfilled, with conventional recruitment methods proving inadequate.

Cyber Million aims to address this shortage by breaking down entry barriers for job seekers, enhancing access to career opportunities, and identifying untapped talent. This program shifts away from conventional recruitment strategies, prioritising a skills-based approach to hiring.

Through Cyber Million, qualifying individuals are able to freely access resources to help identify new talent based on skills rather than degrees or certifications. This allows for people to be judged solely on talent and potential rather than experience or qualification, which is perfect for people looking to jumpstart a cyber security career after military service.

Plus, if you’re an employer, Immersive Labs enterprise customers and sponsors can advertise jobs through their web-based platform to hire without bias, helping to increase diversity within their organisations. More information can be found on
