Boot Camp for Non-tech Professionals

Gain the Skills to Pursue Cybersecurity Education

 

The cybersecurity field represents exciting career opportunities: zero unemployment, higher pay, and a job growth rate faster than any occupation.

In fact, the high demand for cybersecurity professionals has employers aggressively pursuing talent from non-tech fields. However, if you’re a non-technical professional, you might feel a bit hesitant to consider a cyber career because you don’t have a technical background.

To get you ready to pursue cybersecurity education, we have created a 40-hour boot camp to help you build the technical skills needed to take the first step to transition into cybersecurity.

Our online Boot Camp for Non-tech Professionals allows you to move at your own pace while balancing life and other work obligations. The course is asynchronous with the ability to meet on a periodic basis with your instructor to review course material, homework assignments, and answer any questions you might have.

Skills You’ll Learn to Get You Ready for Cybersecurity Education:

During this boot camp, you will:

- Learn the basics of computer networking and how the internet works

- Utilize virtualization software to manage different operating systems

- Navigate through different Linux systems and commands

- Use the terminal and command line interface
