Our Integrated Learning Model
For all of our programs, we have developed a unique integrated learning model that optimizes skills training and promotes deep understanding of the material. We based this model on our extensive experience delivering outcome-based training and with the input and insight of the top practitioners and instructors in each field.
The model consists of four crucial elements required for deep learning:
The Cybersecurity Foundational Professional Certificate Program is comprised of the following modules:
The Program Kickoff serves as a crucial introductory event for participants, providing them with a valuable opportunity to connect with their program coach. During this session, participants will not only establish a rapport with their coach but also gain a clear understanding of the desired outcomes aligned with their organization's goals.
The Knowledge & Skills Assessment is used to assess cyber skills and knowledge. The results of these KSA's will be used by instructors and coaches to identify participant opportunities for improvement during module deliveries and coaching sessions. The pre-program KSA will establish a baseline to compare against the post-program KSA, which will show competency gained during the program.
There are five coaching sessions between five modules. The purpose of these coaching sessions is to review the prior modules, solidify the learning and discuss steps involved in obtaining professional certifications. The coach’s role is to support participants in implementing and adopting the actions discussed during the coaching sessions.
