Cybersecurity is one of the most in-demand global fields today. We’re committed to equipping you with the fundamental skills you need to make an impact while providing unparalleled support and resources before, during, and after your boot camp.
The economic impact of cyber crime is growing: In 2020, the average cost to businesses affected by a data breach in the United States was $8.64 million, up 32% from 2015, and nearly double the global average.1
You can help protect organizations and populations — and change your entire career trajectory. As the world grows more connected and automated (and therefore, more vulnerable), the demand for cybersecurity specialists is on the rise. Information security is one of the fastest-growing fields,2 and No. 6 on Glassdoor’s Top 50 Jobs in America.3
We know how important certification is for our students. That’s why we chose CompTIA as a partner to provide you with a complimentary CertMaster test prep tool and an exam voucher to take the CompTIA certification exam of your choice: Security+, Network+, Linux+, Server+, or Cloud+.
While the boot camp itself does not provide test preparation, a portion of the final module is dedicated to helping you learn and leverage the CertMaster Test Prep Tool for the Security+ exam and some CEH content to get you started.

“I learned more in the boot camp than I did working more than 10 years in the industry. I got the opportunity to meet new people who became my virtual family, and the instructional team was excellent.” Sheila S.
“Coming from zero background in IT, I am still astonished at how much I learned in just 6 months. I got my first interview before I even graduated and they hired me! Now, I'm starting my role as a system administrator just one month after graduating.” Tiffany D.
““I definitely learned a lot! I was working in an unrelated field, and the training I received enabled me to get a job in the IT field. That was my goal coming into the program, and I feel that I achieved that goal.” Seth J.
“Career Services was very helpful in providing comments, suggestions, and general feedback with my resume, LinkedIn, and GitHub.” Courtney T.
