Cyber2 Program

In recent years, demand for Cyber Security Defense and Offense professionals, and Ethical Hackers has surged, and there are not enough skilled workers to fill all the open positions in the field. There are currently over one million unfilled jobs in Cyber Security around the world – and that number is growing fast.

Our goal is to build the Cyber workforce the US needs to keep our businesses, government, and personal information safe from criminal hackers. The goal of this course is to prepare you, whether you have some basic technical knowledge or none, to join the workforce as a certified Cyber Security and Pen Testing expert. We consulted industry thought leaders and HR managers to pinpoint the gaps in Cyber skills, knowledge, and the certifications that make Cyber Professionals stand out to top employers. Then, we designed a curriculum that meets and exceeds their demands.

Program Outline:

This specialized double program combines both the Cyber Security Professional and Ethical Hacking programs for a total of 680 academic hours. Students who opt for this accelerated program are automatically enrolled in the Cyber Security Ethical Hacking program upon successful completion of the Cyber Security Professional track, and will receive a 25% discount on tuition for the Ethical Hacking program.

The Cyber2 program is designed for students with no prior professional background in IT or Cyber Security who want to fast-track a career in Offensive Cyber Security, Penetration Testing, and Ethical Hacking.
