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.

Prerequisites
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:

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

Prerequisites
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.

Cisco Certified Network Associate Security (CCNA Security) validates associate-level knowledge and skills required to secure Cisco networks.

With a CCNA Security certification, a network professional demonstrates the skills required to develop a security infrastructure, recognize threats and vulnerabilities to networks, and mitigate security threats. The CCNA Security curriculum emphasizes core security technologies, the installation, troubleshooting and monitoring of network devices to maintain integrity, confidentiality and availability of data and devices, and competency in the technologies that Cisco uses in its security structure.

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

  • Network Engineer
  • Security Analyst
  • Network Administrator

Job placement is not an afterthought.

From day one, you will work with a professional career specialist to help:
