Learner instructions for the ICT Ignite Cyber program

Updated over a week ago

ICT Ignite Cyber is an exclusive program for currently registered participants of the Lighthouse Labs Cybersecurity bootcamp through the Upskill Canada project.

1. The Lighthouse Labs Team will send you a short sign up form to complete.

2. You will then be matched with a cyber security employer project. ICT Ignite Cyber learners will collaborate on employer projects in teams of up to 5. Each learner will have an individual workspace on the Riipen platform.

3. Each team member will receive an email inviting you to set up your Riipen account and join the ICT Ignite portal. Complete the below fields and click ‘’Create account”.

4. Once in the ICT Ignite portal, you will be able to view the details of your team’s project. First, you need to formally agree to the ICT Ignite Cyber Terms and Conditions. Digitally sign the program T&Cs and you will then be prompted to accept your invitation to join your team.

5. Clicking on your initials avatar in the top right corner, you can edit your learner profile. Add your pronouns (optional), location, and choose up to 5 categories that interest you (ex: Web Development, Product Management, UX/UI design, etc.) You can further personalize your profile by including a photo, your bio, and uploading your resume. This will be shared with employers when you are working on their project.

6. Once your profile is set up, select “My projects” from the left navigation, and click on your team.

7. You’re now all set to begin working on your ICT Ignite Cyber employer project! Click “Start project” and send a welcome message to the employer.
