sample IT & Cybersecurity Curriculum

Typical Entry-Level Certifications

CompTIA A+ certification is an internationally recognized, vendor-neutral certification that many employers consider a prerequisite for entry-level IT employment. A+ certification signifies that the individual is capable of performing tasks such as installation, configuration and troubleshooting of common PC systems.

Upon successful completion of this course, students will learn:

  • Identify the hardware components of personal computers and mobile digital devices.
  • Identify networking and security fundamentals.
  • Install, configure, and troubleshoot display devices.
  • Install and configure peripheral components.
  • Manage system components.
  • Manage data storage.
  • Identify the hardware and software requirements for client environment configurations.
  • Identify network technologies.
  • Install and configure networking capabilities.
  • Support mobile digital devices.
  • Support printers and multifunction devices.

None. Recommended Knowledge: Basic knowledge of computer hardware and operating systems

This course is intended for entry-level computer support professionals with a basic knowledge of computer hardware, software and operating systems who wish to prepare for the CompTIA Network+ Exam. It is also suitable for those who wish to increase their knowledge and understanding of networking concepts and acquire the required skills to prepare for a career in network support or administration.

Upon successful completion of this course, students will learn:

  • Basics of networking theory, concepts and networking methods
  • Basics of networking data delivery
  • Networking media, cabling and hardware
  • Networking protocols and the OSI model
  • Networking Operating Systems
  • TCP/IP fundamentals
  • Networking security, including preventing and responding to incidents

None. It is highly recommended to achieve A+ Certification first.

CompTIA Security+ training provides an excellent introduction to the security field and is typically a better entry point than jumping right into an advanced security program. With Security+, you’ll build a solid foundation of knowledge that you can build upon—helping you advance your career in the months and years to come.

This course is intended for students wishing to prepare for the CompTIA Security+ Certification Exam. The qualification is aimed primarily at networking professionals, but because security is vital to all levels and job roles within an organization, it will also benefit PC support analysts, application developers and senior managers in accounting, sales, product development and marketing.

Upon successful completion of this course, students will learn to:

  • Identify the fundamental concepts of computer security
  • Identify security threats and vulnerabilities
  • Manage data, application, and host security
  • Implement network security
  • Identify and implement access control and account management security measures
  • Manage certificates
  • Identify and implement compliance and operational security measures
  • Manage risk
  • Troubleshoot and manage security incidents
  • Plan for business continuity and disaster recovery

None, but CompTIA A+ and Network+ certifications, or equivalent knowledge, and six to nine months experience in networking, including configuring security parameters, are strongly recommended.

The CCNA Routing and Switching validates the ability to install, configure, operate, and troubleshoot medium-size routed and switched networks.

This is a certification program for entry-level network engineers that helps maximize your investment in foundational networking knowledge and increase the value of your employer’s network.

The job roles best suited to the material in this course are:

  • Network Specialists
  • Network Administrators
  • Network Support Engineers

Job placement is not an afterthought.

What Past Veterans Are Saying

I found this place online, and like probably every other Veteran out there, I was skeptical. I got a phone call from a gentleman named Zohaib Valliani, and I just want to say that this gentleman went above and beyond for me! He's made himself readily accessible with ANY questions I may have had, didn't once sound impersonal with me, sent me a letter that I was able to present (which I needed for a legal matter) stating EXACTLY what my next mission in life I'm about to endeavor in, walked me through EVERY step of the process, AND God willing found me a great GREAT source of income so that I could focus myself entirely on my schooling without having to worry about how I'd be able to pay my bills! Through Zohaib's tireless efforts I'm getting into a coding course that will FINALLY give me a career, not just another dead end JOB! For the 1st time in a VERY long time, my future no longer feels so bleak because of this great opportunity at a second chance I've been given, and plan on taking full advantage of. I HIGHLY recommend Zohaib Valliani to ANYONE that's tired of working these repetitive 9 to 5 jobs where they're not happy and are unfulfilled! I'm a US Navy Veteran, and this is NOT a sales pitch, this is a REAL conversation I'm having with any of my fellow Veterans out there that may have lost their sense of direction and could use a little guidance out to sea in the storm we call life, pick up the phone and ask for Zohaib Valliani. You won't regret it. Thank you so much Zohaib for helping me to find my new heading in life! This organization is very lucky to have you.

I am an OIF/OEF combat veteran. I contacted VTF a few months ago after seeing an ad on facebook. Nicolas at VTF contacted me in a short amount of time. I am currently enrolled in THE Coding Dojo, a coding boot camp that has a very good reputation in the field. I am just starting classes, but I can't say how happy I am to be pursuing the career I have wanted to pursue since I first time I booted up a game on the commodore 64 as a young child. Nicholas has been helpful throughout my entire enrollment process and contacts me regularly to make sure that everything is working out. I will add to this review after I finish the coding boot camp, and again after I find my first job in the field. Right now, I feel like this is my chance at a new lease on life career wise.

Today, I had the pleasure of speaking with ZOHAIB VALLIANI admissions adviser for veterans transition mission. Truly genuine guy!! Clearly explain everything I needed to know and how to complete my first steps towards a exciting new career! By the end of the call Zohaib had goosebumps on my arms pumped up and ready to start the 14wks bootcamp come January 26th. I feel everyone should try coding, for it's the future we must keep up with and the only way to do that is to learn how to properly communicate with technology through coding.. Give Zohaib Valliani a call you will not regret it!!
