Cyber Security Training
The Northern Virginia Technology Council has identified five kinds of jobs that are hard-to-fill: big data and analytics; cybersecurity and privacy; data center and cloud infrastructure; network systems and programming and software development. Cyber security professionals are highly in demand. A study recently released stated that the U.S. has 500,000 unfilled cyber jobs due to lack of qualified candidates. The DC Metro Area is ranked number one in the U.S. for cyber jobs and on an average cybersecurity professionals make an average annual salary of $120K!
For aspiring cyber security professionals without IT experience, knowledge or degree, CompTIA recommends to start with prerequisite courses like CompTIA A+ training and CompTIA Network+ before embarking in your cyber security training. After successfully getting A+ and Network+, ImpactTek recommends to apply for help desk jobs and then start your cyber security training with CompTIA Security+.
We created our cyber program to bridge the gap between demand and qualified candidates. We have developed a 6-month hands-on cybersecurity practical training program with job placement to give our students the knowledge, skills and tools needed to be successful in the fast growing and high paying cyber field.
The 6-month program consists of four courses:
1, CompTIA Security+ training
2. Network Vulnerabilities and Cyber tools or CEH training
3 CompTIA Linux+ training
4. Splunk Core User training, Splunk Power User training, Splunk Admin training and Splunk Architect training.
In the program students receive over 70 hands-on labs and will do projects that will simulate real IT environments. Students will learn how to secure applications, network, and devices, perform threat analysis, and respond with appropriate mitigation techniques, Trojan’s backdoors and countermeasures, and cybersecurity tools.
The cyber security training is offered both in virtual live instructor-led and in-person. CompTIA Security+ training in Annandale VA and Cyber Security training in Fairfax and Manassas.
Below are the details of our program.
