Certificate in Cybersecurity

Overview

This program provides candidates with the skills, knowledge and credentials required to successfully begin a career in the fields of Information Technology and Cybersecurity.  This program was designed by UMBC Training Centers in collaboration with senior executives and technical staff from the Department of Defense, leading Government Contractors, and Fortune 500 companies.

There is a shortage of IT professionals with the skills, certifications, and problem solving abilities necessary to meet the nation's Cyber Defense challenge. And this shortage is expected to persist for years. This represents a tremendous career opportunity for motivated individuals with the right skills and certifications.

To earn the Certificate in Cybersecurity, students must complete the following three courses:

Students may take the CCNA and CEH certification exams at UMBC Training Centers' on-site Pearson VUE Testing Center. CEH is a DoD 8570 certification (required for many Government Cyber positions), and CCNA is among the most highly regarded industry technical certifications.

Tuition includes course materials, 2 certification exams, and 1 year audit privilege.

Audience

This program is suitable for individuals seeking to enter the fields of Information Technology and Cybersecurity, or those are already in the field who desire rigorous education and training.

This program prepares students for employment with government agencies, government contractors and commercial enterprises in the Mid-Atlantic region. This Certificate program is offered in response to industry’s need for qualified employees with the right certifications and problem solving skills to be effective in system support, computer network operations (CNO) and computer network defense (CND). While Cyber is the primary focus, this program provides excellent preparation for work in any commercial or civilian IT organization.
