At last, with the hell week, we have put an end to the 10th week. Before participating in the training, I read all I found on the internet regarding this training, I listened to all the reportages and Read all of the Cyber Struggle’s tweets. Nevertheless, I did not manage to learn a lot about what is going on in the inside. But moving from the commentaries of the graduates and what is been told regarding Cyber Struggle, I decided this is the program I had been searching for and I open the application form to apply. I remember the clock was hitting 3 when I pressed the send button after filling the form.
The course began and 10 weeks passed in the blink of an eye. But our experiences will never fade away. Each weekend will be a unique experience. You will forget the meaning of the word ” I do not know.” You will learn to learn in here. Given assignments might be about the subjects you did not even heard of. But you will find a way to do it.
After coming here, all you need to do is stop showing resistance. Everything will be much better after you stop questioning the given assignments and let yourself into the stream. The effort and time you will be putting into your assignments are completely up to you. You can be done after writing a page or tens of pages. When the hell week arrives, The thing that will grant you with success will be the effort you had given until the moment.
Field practices can not be told, but can only be lived in a real sense. You will understand how necessary of a virtue it is to be able to be a team, take an initiative and be brave. This course will be always progressing from hard to harder. The previous day will be your easiest day. And the last field applications will be designed to put you through the hardest but if you succeed in being a team, it will be your easiest day.
When you check the weekly assignments at the end of the course, you will realize the amount of change that has taken place within. You are gonna write so many writings and articles that you will also be amazed when you look at all the work you had done. You will miss the intensity of the course within a day after its finish. You must forget the classical education system as you come here.
No one will be telling you what command is using to do what. You will be told of a task and a goal. And all you will be supposed to do is focusing the task ahead with your unit. You will learn how does an incident does occur at the most unexpected times. Your phone will be ringing at the most unexpected moments. As you go to a toilet for only 2 minutes, Your phone will ring. As you just drift into sleep or as you turn off your laptop and get prepared to hit the road, your phone will ring. And then, here goes the incident. It is essential for you to read the manifestos and the open letters of the graduates that take place on the website of Cyber Struggle. Everything that is being told is real. The things that are shared on social media accounts are just a little slice of the real experience that you are going to live.
Be assured, regardless of how much effort you are putting in here, the team behind the strings are working multiple times more than you for your behalf. You will slowly see this as the weeks progress. When you are asked of making a decision, I would suggest you to pick vanilla stick, it is not to be forgotten easily:)
