“We can take someone from the gates of a military base to their first job in cybersecurity in six months."

SecureSet Academy today announced that it has been approved for GI Bill funds. With the global demand for cybersecurity professionals expected to rise to six million by 2019 (with a projected shortfall of 1.5 million), this represents a major opportunity for Colorado Springs veterans who want to enter a high-demand post-military career field.

SecureSet Academy — the only comprehensive, accelerated cybersecurity education program in the US — is kicking off Bootcamp Prep courses at its new Colorado Springs campus on Sat., Jan 7, 2017. Students who complete Bootcamp Prep are guaranteed admission into the Academy’s CORE Technical Bootcamp Program, a 36-week evening course launching Jan. 30, 2017. CORE classes are limited to 25 students.

“The traditional evolution of a cybersecurity career path — getting certifications on the job and/or committing to four-year degrees — isn’t fast enough to meet the demand,” said Bret Fund, founder of SecureSet Academy. “We can take someone from the gates of a military base to their first job in cybersecurity in six months. Currently, 100% of our students have received job offers, usually before they even complete the CORE program.”

Veterans interested in learning more about the cybersecurity field, training requirements, salary and the nature of the work are encouraged to contact Martha Laughman (martha[at]secureset[dot]com or 800.445.0024, ext. 718).
