Are you a military veteran ready to turn cybersecurity into job security? If so, our new cybersecurity training and certification program may be for you!
NEW SKILLS FOR A NEW FIGHT is a cybersecurity training and certification program, focused on preparing students for a specific, high-demand job role. This intensive 40-week long full-time on-campus program offers free tuition, fees, books and certification vouchers.
This program is designed for students with a basic background of knowledge and experience with IT concepts that are considering educational options at the undergraduate level. Students that have already achieved an undergraduate or graduate degree, however, are welcome to apply.
Upon successful completion of the program, graduates will be trained and ready to serve as entry level Incident Responders in a Security Operations Center with transferable credit to finish a full undergraduate degree online or part-time (if desired).
It is recommended that applicants for the pilot cohort have mathematical preparation equivalent to that obtained from courses in Algebra through pre-Calculus; knowledge of basic IT concepts (e.g., networks, computer architecture, programming) or related experience acquired through military service in career fields such as administration, intelligence, engineering, communications or other technical disciplines; and an understanding of basic logic such as formulating Boolean queries.
The center has received limited funding to support military veterans for the initial pilot. Veterans interested must complete the necessary application for consideration.
