Our Differentiators

Building the elite cybersecurity corps that can hit the ground running day 1 on the job  — trained using real technologies, real networks, and real attacks — requires a commitment to our cyber code of conduct.

HONOR – self, community, country. It’s what America was founded on. We intend to arm our nation against growing digital threats.

EVERYONE – is eligible to elevate their earning potential and answer our nation’s critical call to defend the digital economy.

RESPECT – that it’s a learning process and students “get it” when they work the plan. Our support team is committed to their cause.

OUTCOMES – trainees get out what they put in, and with an 80%+ job placement rate, they transform their lives. Employers get prepared cyber pros who make an immediate impact, not just with job-ready skills and Security+ certification, but also with positive attitudes and appreciation to be doing such important work.

To say Mike's passionate about technology is an understatement. When he's not writing books or shooting videos on entry-level IT certifications, You'll find Mike on his livestream and as a contributing author.

Mike lives an idyllic bachelor life in downtown Houston TX. When he's not working he's playing with whatever latest technology intrigues him, building siege weapons (while dressed appropriately of course), doting on his grandkids or expanding his oenophile passions.
