With support from Boeing and the Scott Air Force Base Airman and Family Readiness Center, CyberUp has developed a pathway to help transitioning veterans begin a high paying career in cybersecurity. On May 19th, CyberUp will welcome up to 20 veterans into our inaugural Veteran LevelUp: Apprenticeship Program. The program targets veterans transitioning from active duty with 6 – 12 months left to their military commitment or active National Guard and Reservists. Participants will receive 6 months of free, virtual supported training by CyberUp. Their training will ramp up their technical and cybersecurity skills to CompTIA Security+. Upon completion of their training, veterans are eligible for apprenticeship placement services from CyberUp. Through placement at an employer partner of CyberUp, veterans will complete 2,000 hours as a paid apprentice and continue their technical skills training.
The next cohort is tentatively scheduled to start in January 2021.
