Craft and develop the skills and knowledge needed for lasting success.
CLASS-LLC developed this program because few opportunities exist to help new and emerging cybersecurity professionals develop the knowledge, skills, and abilities they need to enter the workforce and achieve success.
An intentionally different approach
CLASS-LLC developed this program because few opportunities exist to help new
and emerging cybersecurity professionals develop the knowledge, skills, and
abilities they need to enter the workforce and achieve success. Most workforce development programs either promote self-study or they promise that the right certification will open a door that leads to success and a six-figure income. The truth is that the greatest success results from a combination of relationships with the right people, dedicated support, and the ability to apply fundamental cybersecurity principles to real-world situations.

"The Cybersecurity Apprenticeship has many of the features that were available in my graduate program. The knowledge that I obtained from Keyaan’s Cyber Risk Management class and the certification courses that he taught provided an extra edge that optimized my success as a cybersecurity consultant."
Technology Risk Advisory Consultant
"I took a more traditional route and obtained both a Bachelor's degree and a Master's. I just wanted to get a foot in the door when I transitioned from IT to security. Because of programs like this, I had the confidence and courage to help create opportunities for people of color in cybersecurity by sharing news and professional guidance through the SecurityinColor.com blog."
Senior Cloud Security Consultant
"I tried college and only learned the basics. The conventional, expected, and normal approach doesn't always work. Instead of continuing with the degree, I worked with mentors, invested in self-study, and learned everything I could. The experience I gained made the difference and helped me stand out in my interviews"
