Course Description

The C|CT certification provides total foundational cybersecurity domain coverage with key concepts in each domain combined with practical hands-on labs and critical thinking challenges producing world-class cyber security technologists. The course outline of the C|CT program goes above and beyond some of the more common entry-level cybersecurity programs, such as the Security+, in a completely hands-on cyber range environment instead of simulations to ensure cybersecurity skills development.
