Cyber Workforce Academy

A project of the United States Cyber Academy

The SANS Cyber Workforce Academy is a three-to-four-month accelerated cybersecurity training program that provides jobseekers with advanced technical training, industry-recognized GIAC certifications and hands-on cyber defense and incident handling skills sought by local employers. This is a 100% scholarship-based program and students are not required to pay for training and certification they receive as part of the Academy.

SANS Cyber Workforce Academies are made possible by grants, sponsors and organizations looking to hire cybersecurity talent or help advance the field by bringing in new talent. Academy eligibility requirements and curricula will be based on the specific focus and needs of the sponsors.
