White Mountains Community College (WMCC) has announced an updated, fully online certificate program in IT Cybersecurity. WMCC is partnering with CompTIA, the industry leading trade association and certification body, to provide the latest in cybersecurity training. In addition to the WMCC certificate, students will be prepared for 5 different CompTIA certifications: the industry recognized CompTIA A+, Network+, Linux+, Security+ and CompTIA’s most in-depth security credential the Cybersecurity Analyst certification. Complete training, unlimited practice exams and one free certification exam are included with each course. The program requires no pre-requisite skills or knowledge and can be completed on whatever schedule is convenient for the student.

The certificate program is designed to equip students with the essential skills and knowledge required to be successful in the fast-paced and ever-evolving world of cybersecurity. With the help of CompTIA’s innovative technology, students will have access to a wide range of simulations and practical exercises that will allow them to develop their skills and gain valuable experience.  All courses are fully online with most using CompTIA’s industry-leading simulation architecture TestOut so students can work around their existing busy schedule. The program is available as both a one-year full-time path and a two-year part-time path, using 8-week intensive courses. The shorter courses allow students to take the four cybersecurity keystone courses (that build on each other) in 9 months for those looking for a fast-track professional certification.

Furthermore, students who successfully complete the certificate program will have the opportunity to seamlessly transfer to an associate degree program at neighboring Lakes Region Community College (LRCC) through our 1+1 agreement or continue with other four-year institutions. This will allow students to continue their education in a related field and potentially open new career opportunities. With this program, WMCC is helping to ensure that students in rural communities have access to high-quality educational programs that will prepare them for the demands of the modern workforce.  Enrollment for the program is already open.
