(BEDFORD) – Ivy Tech Community College is partnering with Radius Indiana to offer a certification cybersecurity training program at the StoneGate Arts & Education Center in downtown Bedford.
Ivy Tech’s cybersecurity training will begin in March and will be offered in 8-week courses during the day, 8-week evening courses and one-week boot camps.
The first cybersecurity boot camp will kick off March 8th and aims to prepare participants to earn their CompTIA Security+ certification, an entry-level workforce credential for some cybersecurity positions.
Students who successfully pass CompTIA Security+ can earn four Ivy Tech college credits to apply toward earning a credential.
Participants who have not already earned a college degree could be eligible to earn a tuition-free Ivy Tech certification in cybersecurity, paid for by the Workforce Ready Grant through Next Level Jobs Indiana.
“We are pleased that Ivy Tech and Bedford are such reliable and effective partners in this initiative to meet the labor needs of local businesses and governments, Crane and its many contractors have a focus on the field of cybersecurity, and regional employment in this field will continue to grow. Ivy Tech’s cybersecurity lab is a big part of the pipeline that will supply the labor force our region needs,” said Jeff Quyle, president and chief executive officer of Radius Indiana.
