Our Cybersecurity Apprenticeship Program is a unique, job-oriented program where students will learn only market relevant training. It is employer-backed with the ideal outcome being that each student has the best possible chance of being hired by one of our employer partners. Sollers College is the ONLY higher education institution in New Jersey or New York to offer this program.
Students will gain in-depth knowledge and understanding of the new threats, technologies, regulations, standards, and practices within the information security space. Students will also learn about the concepts behind business continuity planning and the legal and regulatory issues that pertain to information security in a global context. They will tackle the human side of security, from establishing secure hiring practices and job descriptions to developing an employee infrastructure.
In addition to the in-depth classroom hours you will be spending on learning these skills and more, this program also includes a paid apprenticeship with our company partners!
