The Cybersecurity Professional Bootcamp employs a comprehensive learning model that will provide you with valuable experience and give students all the tools necessary to get started in the field immediately upon graduation. Students will have access to simulation labs that model true-to-life scenarios to help provide a practical understanding of the information and how to apply it in the workplace.
30-Hour Introductory Course | 370-Hour Extended Program
In the Computer Networking course, learners will cover the basics of computer networks, including topologies, protocols, network designs, and devices. This will form a foundation for learners to later study and sit for the CompTIA Network+ exam* after completing the Network Security course.
Almost everything happens on a network, either locally or on the internet. Learners will leave the Network Security course with the skills to design, suggest, and implement controls to build secure networks from design to post-implementation. The curriculum focuses on enabling you to achieve technical positions by giving you the digital skillset needed to appeal most to potential employers.
After this course, learners will be prepared to begin studying for the CompTIA Security+ exam*.
After this course, learners will be prepared to finish studying for the EC-Council CEH(Certified Ethical Hacker) certification exam*.
After this course, learners will be prepared to finish studying for the EC-Council CSA (Certified SOC Analyst) certification exam*.
Upon completion of the program, learners will have the reports, code, and designs from their projects to form a portfolio that they can show prospective employers.

During the two 2-week breaks that are built into the Cybersecurity Professional Bootcamp, learners will have a chance to take non-mandatory asynchronous lessons for certification-prep. The CyWar platform also hosts study guides, question banks, “Cyberpedia,” and challenges that will help learners practice and ace their exams.
We recommend that learners seek one certification during each phase, according to their individual career goals.
Linux LPI Essentials
The Linux LPI Essentials exam verifies knowledge of the open-source Linux operating system and practical knowledge of various open-source applications. The exam measures the ability to manage users and groups, as well as a candidate’s competency with Linux command line, permissions, security, basic networking configuration, and administration.
AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner
The AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner certification exam should be considered by individuals with knowledge of AWS Cloud and its infrastructure. Experience with security and compliance aspects of the platform will be a crucial requirement for passing the examination and proving your competency to potential employers.
The CompTIA Network+ certification exam requires you to know how to configure, manage, and troubleshoot a variety of network devices. The exam also expects cyber professionals to be familiar with emerging technologies such as mobile, cloud, communication, and virtualization technologies.
EC-Council CND - Certified Network Defender
The Certified Network Defender certification should be considered by learners who want to become Network Administrators who are trained in protecting, detecting, and responding to the threats on the network.
The CompTIA Security+ is the next step up from the CompTIA Network+ and is considered an entry-level cybersecurity certification. The CompTIA Security+ exam tests the candidate’s skill set over a range of disciplines, such as systems, networks, security administration, and penetration testing.
EC-Council CSA - Certified SOC Analyst
The Certified SOC Analyst certification is the first step to joining a security operations center (SOC). It is engineered for current and aspiring Tier I and Tier II SOC analysts to achieve proficiency in performing entry-level and intermediate-level operations.
EC-Council CEH - Certified Ethical Hacker
The Certified Ethical Hacker certification is intended for learners who want to work in the specific network security discipline of Ethical Hacking from a vendor-neutral perspective.
(ISC)² SSCP – Systems Security Certified Practitioner**
For students who achieved 1 year of experience—Post-Program Completion. The (ISC)² SSCP certification is ideal for those with proven technical and practical, hands-on security knowledge.
