Our Cybersecurity Training Programs

It is widely recognized that there is a large and growing gap between cybersecurity jobs and qualified personnel to fill them. A quote from Cybercrime Magazine states, "Global cybersecurity job vacancies grew by 350 percent, from one million openings in 2013 to 3.5 million in 2021. The number of unfilled jobs leveled off in 2022, and remains at 3.5 million in 2023, with more than 750,000 of those positions in the U.S. (Cybersecurity Ventures, 2023)." Additionally, approximately 200,000 active-duty service members exit the military each year returning to civilian life (Transition Assistance Program, 2023). By supporting and training these transitioning service members, both supports the transition process and contributes to closing the cybersecurity jobs gap. offers a comprehensive 4 to 6-month boot-camp designed for transitioning active-duty personnel with minimal or no cyber background. Using problem-based learning methods, our program immerses and  these service members in authentic cybersecurity challenges, hands-on or experiential learning, and just-in-time learning. Our approach employs a cognitive apprenticeship approach combined with continuous workforce developmentmodel equipping them with pivotal cybersecurity expertise, making them market-ready. Through tailor-made learning activities, service members gain the proficiency and assurance to delve into contemporary cybersecurity concepts and relay threat updates to high-level officials. Moreover, we provide them with personalized mentorship, ensuring a smooth shift to civilian roles.

Within the program, Veterans not only train to attain cybersecurity knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSAs) aligned with the NICE Framework but are mentored and coached in resume writing, job searching (USA Jobs, Veteran preference programs and industry), interviewing, and the hiring process. Veterans are also mentored in establishing a business social media presence; developing e-Portfolios; and creating, growing and maintaining their professional networks. This occurs through connecting with supporting cybersecurity personnel, attending conferences, and introducing themselves and asking questions of guest speakers from the industry.

Currently, we have completed 11 cohorts and have graduated 33 Veterans from our program. The primary success metric is based on employment upon completion. Of those that completed there is a 96% overall employment rate with 92% employed within cybersecurity.
