UMBC Training Centers announced new Cybersecurity Academy certificate programs that provide highly-focused skills training and practical experience to address the cyber workforce training needs of the military, the intelligence community, federal civilian agencies, and the commercial sector in the Mid-Atlantic region. The Cybersecurity Academy includes four non-credit certificate programs: Cyber Foundations, Cybersecurity, Cyber Development and Cyber Operations. These certificate programs combine multiple skills training and hands-on problem solving guided by expert instructors to create high-impact learning. The skills mastered in the programs prepare participants with immediate, on-the-job effectiveness to tackle real-world situations.
The Certificate in Cyber Operations program starts June 24 and features a rigorous curriculum that delivers a focused set of skills reinforced by multiple industry certifications, including CompTIA Network+, CompTIA Security+, Cisco Certified Network Associate and Certified Ethical Hacker. This program is closely aligned with the recent National Institute of Standards and Technology release of the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education framework.
A webinar to educate participants on the new Certificate in Cyber Operations is scheduled for May 15 from 12- 1 p.m. Register for the webinar.
