Cybersecurity is one of the most in-demand global fields today. We’re committed to equipping you with the fundamental skills you need to make an impact, while providing unparalleled support and resources before, during, and after your boot camp.
You can help protect organizations and populations — and change your entire career trajectory. As the world grows more connected and automated (and therefore, more vulnerable), the demand for cybersecurity professionals grows too. The number of job openings is expected to outnumber job seekers by 14% between 2019 and 2028.1
We know how important certification is for our learners; that’s why we chose CompTIA as a partner to provide you with a complimentary CertMaster test prep tool and an exam voucher to take the CompTIA certification exam of your choice: Security+, Network+, Linux+, Server+, or Cloud+.
While the boot camp itself does not provide test prep, a portion of the final module is dedicated to helping you learn and leverage the CertMaster Test Prep Tool for the Security+ exam and some CEH content to get you started.
In 24 weeks, University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies Cybersecurity Boot Camp will prepare you with the technical skills you need to protect digital environments.
