Workforce Development offers new cyber security program

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (June 25, 2013) – In response to industry demands, Tallahassee Community College’s Division of Workforce Development is offering a new cyber security program. Provided through a partnership with InfoSec Learning, the program consists of open-enrollment online courses that examine the landscape, key terms and concepts that a security professional needs to know regarding the many layers of information systems security.
 
TCC’s online courses deliver fundamental IT security principles and real-world applications, tools and techniques used in today’s workforce for careers in IT security, cyber security and information assurance.
 
The Information Systems Security & Assurance curriculum includes applied labs delivered in a first-of-its kind cloud computing environment for a fully immersive mock IT infrastructure enabling hands-on experiential learning. 
 
Instructors/facilitators are current practitioners in the field with the top-level certifications in cyber security, and are available to students during the online learning experience. Upon passing each course, students will receive a certificate of completion to acknowledge their new skills.
 
According to the 2013-14 Targeted Occupations List (TOL) published by Workforce Florida many IT/cyber security fields will have a positive increase in the total number of annual openings in Gadsden, Leon, and Wakulla counties.  These include, but are not limited to:  computer programmers, computer support specialists, computer systems analysts, and software/application developers. The predicted annual percent growth for these occupations range from .47% to 1.58%.
 
The Statewide TOL for 2013-14 lists a total of 637 annual job openings in these areas.  Additionally, 5 local employers provided letters of support to TCC Workforce Development for a cyber security program.  Local employers indicated that they would hire individuals with cyber security training as appropriate for their organization.
