Career Path with Opportunity!
Cyber Security is in Demand
Companies are already hunting for security personnel and the growth isn’t supposed to stop any time soon. Current projections predict 6 million jobs will be available globally in 2019 with an expected shortfall of 1.5 million.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the most recent median pay for an Information Security Analyst is *$88,890 per year. The upper 10% earned more than *$140,000 per year! * Salary.com
Certifications that Matter
The CEH certification is one of the top 10 paying IT certifications.
In this course, students will be introduced to entry-level cyber security concepts. This course assumes the student has already completed CompTIA A+ and Network+ certification courses or that the student has an equivalent working knowledge of computer and network principles. In this course, students will implement, monitor, and troubleshoot infrastructure, application, information, and operation security. This phase will prepare students for the current CompTIA Security+ certification examination (SY0-501) if they choose to pursue it. The Security+ certification is the gold-standard for entry-level Information Security jobs.
EC-Council Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH)
Our EC-Council CEH course will help you master ethical hacking methodology that can be used in any penetration testing or ethical hacking situation. This course will immerse you into the hacker mindset so that you can learn what attack-vectors hackers commonly use, how those vectors are exploited, and most importantly, how they think. Knowing these things will make you invaluable in discovering an organizations weaknesses and coming up with defense strategies to protect sensitive information. This course will have several hands-on-labs allowing you to put concepts to the test. Students will also have the opportunity to build their own personal hacking device using a Raspberry Pi and Kali Linux.
CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP)
Yes – temporarily. Due to COVID-19 courses can be taken remotely through December 21, 2020. After this date, all courses must be taken at our training center in Meridian, Idaho. Many out-of-state Veterans move to Idaho during the training program. There are affordable housing solutions close to our training center.
Depending on eligibility, your benefits will pay for books, labs, and training. Our three-month accelerated Cyber Analyst program will use six months of benefits. Please contact us for more information.
