Just launched, the STEP Cybersecurity Registered Apprenticeship Program matches apprenticeship candidates with Virginia companies who need to supplement their own cybersecurity workforce with individuals who are eager to enter this career path. The program combines a one-year apprenticeship program with in-depth competency-based, online cybersecurity training. The Virginia Department of Labor & Industry recognized CivilianCyber as the only approved full Registered Apprenticeship program for cybersecurity in the state.
CivilianCyber has partnered with Virginia’s Commonwealth Cyber Initiative (CCI) and others to create a cybersecurity talent identification and development pipeline to address the growing shortage of trained cybersecurity workers across the Commonwealth. The STEP Registered Apprenticeship Program provides a 12-month cybersecurity apprenticeship with a local company and fully paid, accredited training to a group of candidates that demonstrate and aptitude and desire to begin a career in cybersecurity career aptitude.
