As a participant in the Academy you will:
- Remain in your current position and post of duty.
- Participate in a 3 month interactive training and development program which provides both virtual and on-site experiential learning.
Training assignments may include review and exposure to fictitious data collected from a variety of cyber defense tools (e.g., intrusion detection systems, alerts, firewalls, network traffic logs) to analyze events that occur within the environments for the purposes of mitigating threats.
Complete a multi-layered training curriculum over three months. The curriculum begins with a "cyber-essentials" course that includes up to 120 hours of modules, labs, and quizzes. The curriculum begins with a cyber-essentials course that begins with an onsite workshop, followed by four weeks of follow-on learning, exercises, and exams. Students then attend a "bootcamp" course live for six full days, followed by two weeks of study and a certification exam. The final course is another "bootcamp," followed by additional study and a final certification exam. Students who successfully pass the certification exam move on to the final course, which follows a similar timeline.
Complete extracurricular activities and exercises to enhance their learning and skills development, such as online programs, cyber competitions, and more.
Receive career mentorship and soft skills guidance to help strengthen candidates backgrounds in the cybersecurity field.
The program accounts for roughly 3 weeks of in class training in DC. The 3 weeks are incremental. Your current home agency would have to agree to cover all costs associated with the program including paying your salary and travel expenses for the 3 months while on the detail.
