Cyber Boot Camp

Are you highly technical? Do you enjoy diving into the nitty-gritty details of coding and software to catch flaws and fix them? Do you want to discover how to break into systems legally and ethically and create countermeasures for vulnerabilities before cyber criminals can take advantage of them? 

We designed our Cyber Boot Camp pathway for those interested in software security, software development, and penetration testing. Software security training can lead to a more secure infrastructure and fewer flaws for attackers to exploit; in fact, developers who get coaching from cybersecurity experts fix 88% more coding flaws.  

Cyber Boot Camp also provides a path toward studying for challenging industry certifications like the Offensive Security Certified Professional (OSCP), GIAC Penetration Tester (GPEN), and GIAC Web Application Penetration Tester (GWAPT) through hands-on experience in network security, exploiting software vulnerabilities, and penetration testing.  

Become a penetration tester, an ethical hacker, or a security software developer through our Cyber Boot Camp micro-credential.  

CYBER BOOT CAMP MICRO-CREDENTIAL                                               TUITION FEE: $5,500

 The micro-credential would be paid for in increments as courses are taken. Courses can also be taken individually (tuition fees listed below).
