Veterans, Are You Interested In Free Cybersecurity Training?

As a Veteran, did you know you have access to free cybersecurity training on the Federal Virtual Training Environment (FedVTE)?  The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) wants to help Veterans transition to their next mission: a rewarding cybersecurity career. DHS teamed up with Hire Our Heroes to provide U.S. Veterans with access to FedVTE.  FedVTE provides free cybersecurity training to U.S. federal, state, local, tribal and territorial government employees, along with U.S. Military Personnel and Veterans.

FedVTE contains over 60 courses ranging from beginner to advanced, including popular cybersecurity certification preparation courses like Security +, Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH), and Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP). Along with certification prep courses, FedVTE offers training on a variety of introductory topics including 101 Coding, 101 Critical Infrastructure Protection, and 101 Reverse Engineering.
