At Phoenix Cyber Academy (PCA) we know that traditional paths to entering the exciting, interesting, and lucrative field of cyber security can be very expensive and time consuming. These are obvious barriers for entry to disadvantaged members of our community.
With more than 3 million open cyber security jobs we knew there had to be a better way to ensure motivated underprivileged individuals could obtain employable skills and certifications in a quick and affordable manner.
PCA has developed a standardized, repeatable, and short (4 week) cyber security vocational training program designed to educate students quickly so they have the foundational knowledge and industry-accepted certifications desired by employers who need to secure their organizations.
The program is designed to be free for disadvantaged members of our communities. Tuition and Living Wage scholarships for disadvantaged students are funded through donations and grants.
The program is open to the general public as well. Your tax-deductible paid tuition covers yourself and one student in need.
Students may attend the cyber security career accelerator program in-classroom (Mesa, Arizona) or remote (live, online). However, it’s very challenging for students to attend full time remotely. It’s just not the same experience so we encourage attending in person.
Our employer partnership program provides local employers prioritized access to our pipeline of qualified graduates. Partner program employers are also able to visit us on-site, review student progress reports, and conduct pre-graduation interviews.
We have partnered with industry-leading cyber security certification issuers to ensure the training we deliver is of high-quality and industry-accepted.
Our students graduate with the following professional certifications.
— PECB Certified ISO/IEC 27032 Foundation: Information Technology – Security
— EC-Council Certified Ethical Hacking Associate (EHA)
— EC-Council Certified Cyber Forensics Associate (CFA)
— PECB Certified ISO/IEC 27001 Foundation: Information Security Management
