pathways into Cybersecurity
We’ve developed a cybersecurity certificate pathway to align with NIST’s NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework. First, we start off with the Certificate in Cyber Foundations, which starts students off with training to prepare for three fundamental CompTIA certifications: A+, Network+, and Security+. Next, our instructors build on your foundational knowledge in the Certificate in Cyber Operations with intermediate courses in programming, Windows command line, and Linux administration. Our final bundle, the Certificate in Cybersecurity, prepares you with advanced cybersecurity courses in penetration testing and malware analysis. Our flagship training, the Certified Cyber Analyst/Operator program, takes students through all three Certificates to prepare students of any experience level for a career in cybersecurity.
Certified Cyber Analyst/Operator
The Certified Cyber Analyst/Operator program is an intensive, hands-on training program designed to prepare individuals for careers in cybersecurity. The program combines our three core cyber certificate programs.
Certificate in Cyber Foundations
This program provides candidates with the skills, knowledge and credentials required to successfully begin a career in the field of Information Technology. 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.
Certificate in Cyber Operations
The Certificate in Cyber Operations prepares students for a career in cybersecurity analysis, network defense, vulnerability assessment or penetration testing.
Certificate in Cybersecurity
There is a severe shortage of information technology professionals with the credentials and capabilities needed to meet the nation’s many cybersecurity challenges. This shortage is expected to persist for years, representing a tremendous career opportunity for IT professionals who possess the aptitude and the passion to succeed in the field of cybersecurity.
