I was wondering what it would take to be accepted into formal training for ComboFix and malware removal. I work for a university at a help desk where we help students repair their computers for free (small fee included with tuition). We go through over 3,000 computers a semester in our Walk-In along with several thousand phone calls and in hall appointments. This would be a great opportunity to bring back knowledge to our office and improve our student workers abilities.

Thanks in advance,
shauder

It's not just ComboFix that is taught. That is just one fraction of the skill set that comprises a Malware Removal Team Members training.

Awesome I appreciate the link!

Thanks!

Due to the self paced nature of training and limitation of number of Instructors, it is impossible to predict with any accuracy when slots will open.

Thank you for the prompt replies. I have two last questions I promise!

How are the pass codes handed out?

Is there any sort of notification system for when slots open?

If space is unavailable here at BC, malware removal training is also offered at other Unite Schools.

How are the pass codes handed out?

Pass codes are a mechanism to bypass the automated application procedure for admissions. It is the exception to the normal process and managed by the Study Hall Admin. If this is done, it is via a PM here on the forum and between the Study Hall Admin and potential trainee.

Is there any sort of notification system for when slots open?

At this time there is not a notification system in place. The logistics and management of such a system and the fact we have a worldwide membership negate the potential effectiveness and fairness one would expect from it.
