Have You Ever Wished You Could Get College Credit for IT Training?
In recent years, Cyber Security has grown into a high-demand profession with a magnitude of job opportunities to follow. This seems like a dream come true for cyber security teams, right? Not entirely....
Although many IT cyber security positions are available, there are a limited amount of individuals sufficiently trained to fill the role. Mike Chapple, Senior Director for IT service Delivery at the University of Notre Dame, puts the gap in perspective between individuals who are qualified by training and open positions in the field:
“If every single adult in the state of Arizona quit their jobs today and trained to become an information security professional, the industry would still be short about 200,000 qualified individuals."
Talk about a shortage!
The shortage of skilled individuals have obviously put a massive strain on the IT security industry over recent years. The desperate demand shows the importance of this industry's existence as it involves keeping computer systems and information protected from numerous cyber threats and attacks worldwide.
Because of the skill shortage, more training options have surfaced and thanks to widespread access to the internet, aspiring IT security professionals can now obtain qualified instruction and a variety of specialized certifications online. And now, ABTU has teamed with Cyber Training 365 to offer additional opportunities for students to transfer this cutting-edge IT training and knowledge into bonafide college credits.
