Government Training Courses and Initiatives

Many of our public schedule courses map to various government initiatives, such as the ones outlined below:

8570 CoursesAKA the Information Assurance Workforce Improvement Program. This directive is aimed at establishing standards for IA personnel in terms of achieving specific IT and security certifications within a defined time frame. The certifications required depend on the individual’s job functions, but the most popular include CompTIA’s A+, Network+ and Security+ certifications and the EC-Council CEH and (ISC)²’s CISSP.

View the baseline certification requirements and the IAT privileged access requirements on our 8570.01M Certification Fact Sheet.

 

NICE FrameworkThis framework recently developed by the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) concentrates on developing a standardized lexicon and understanding of work related  to cybersecurity. The end goal of the NICE Framework is to “educate, recruit, train, develop  and retain a highly-qualified workforce.”

  • Manage their employees’ certifications and organize the proper training as needed for each employee based on the organization’s requirements.
  • Plan and manage a continuing education program in order to maintain the certifications employees earn.
  • Organize the pre-delivery and distribution of study materials.
  • Assess students to ensure they meet the pre-requisites for courses they need to attend and to ensure they have successfully consumed the information presented in order to be successful on their certification exams.

And we hope we can make your training programs run more efficiently and effectively as well!

Government Education Programs

We understand that training can be expensive if your company isn’t picking up the bill. That’s why we offer information on several programs in place to help ease the pain. If you have any questions regarding accepted payment methods, please contact a Training and Certification Consultant at 301-258-8200.

 

Post 9/11 GI Bill

Post 9/11 GI Bill

The Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC) only permits institutions such as 4-year colleges to accept this bill. That being said, we can’t accept the GI Bill as payment for training, however you can seek reimbursement for the cost of the exam voucher. To learn more about the policies and how you can leverage your Post 9/11 GI Bill, read this blog post.
