Cybersecurity: Network+ and Security+ Exam Preparation
Why take an online course when you could prep with others in the PPCC network technology labs? These eight week courses help you to prepare for the CompTIA Network+ or Security+ exams, which are essential for IT professionals who want careers in cybersecurity.
The Network+ classes use CompTIA recommended course materials and labs. We've teamed up with SecureSet Academy, Colorado's cybersecurity bootcamp leaders. You will learn using SecureSet's advanced cyber lab and course materials.
