We estimate you will successfully complete the course within 6 months if you devote at least 10-15 hours/week. You can aim to complete the course in less time if you are ready to devote more time per week to complete the curriculum materials, and are driven and disciplined with managing your study schedule.
We work with industry experts to determine the most relevant topics in cybersecurity, and find the best resources on each topic (e.g. videos, tutorials, and lectures).

Note that many of the videos and resources in the curriculum are not created in-house by us. Instead, we find and curate the best resources available on the subject. Think of us as a college professor who creates a syllabus by combining the best textbook chapters, articles, papers, and projects (instead of teaching from only their own textbook).

We believe that the curated curriculum is our unique strength. By standing on the shoulders of giants, we’re able to update the curriculum frequently, and always teach the latest tools and technologies.
You’ll have support from:
  • Your mentor: A cybersecurity expert will provide weekly 1:1 guidance and accountability in a 30-minute call.

  • And finally, your classmates: You can form study groups, get feedback, and work on projects together! We have an active online community that you’ll receive lifetime access to.
We will provide a certificate of completion to all students who complete the course and receive mentor approval on their final project(s). You can display your certificate on LinkedIn via our integration, or add to your resume.
All of our courses are entirely online. All you need is an Internet connection.
Our admissions process will screen for a foundational knowledge of programming and security concepts.

This cybersecurity bootcamp is ideal for people with technical (e.g. IT or Computer Science) or entry-level security backgrounds.
