About the Program
Cybersecurity is a growing field that spans across all industries. It is also a culture – a constantly evolving and expanding niche – specially suited to life-long learners, problem-solvers, critical thinkers, and collaborators. To help fill the need for qualified cybersecurity professionals, City Colleges of Chicago offers a cybersecurity boot camp to people looking to take their IT career to the next level. This boot camp provides both expert instruction and the materials necessary for students to pass the CompTIA Security+ certification exam, a broad, foundational cybersecurity certification.
