New ASU Cybersecurity Boot Camp Tackling Skills Gap

Arizona State University

Arizona State University's Continuing & Professional Education has partnered with Trilogy Education to launch a new cybersecurity boot camp geared toward adult learners. The ASU Cybersecurity Boot Camp will "teach the applied technical skills to fill the growing demand for cybersecurity talent in Phoenix," according to a news announcement.

The part-time, face-to-face program spans 24 weeks and covers topics in IT, networking and modern information security, including the use of industry tools such as Wireshark, Kali Linux, Metasploit and Nessus. The course also addresses skills needed for certifications such as CompTIA Security+, CompTIA Network+ and CEH.

"The demand for cybersecurity professionals is growing rapidly and the skills these professionals need are changing just as fast," said Darcy Richardson, director of continuing & professional education for EdPlus at Arizona State University, in a statement. "The ASU Cybersecurity Boot Camp will teach students a range of important technologies and give them the tools to stay one step ahead in a space that is constantly evolving to adapt to new threats."

Students who complete the program receive a Certificate in Cybersecurity from ASU's Continuing & Professional Education. Support services include career-planning help, portfolio reviews and recruiting assistance.
