(ISC)², a non-profit association of certified cybersecurity professionals, has announced that capacity for more than 100 students is now available through December 2021 for the University of Mary Washington’s (UMW) (ISC)² Cybersecurity Certification Preparation Course.

The program is formatted for evening and weekend classes to provide high-quality cybersecurity education to working professionals who require schedule flexibility.

The UMW program is led by authorized (ISC)²-certified instructors, based on authorized (ISC)² course material and delivered in a 12-week, 40-hour non-credit course. It provides a thorough review of the (ISC)² Common Body of Knowledge (CBK), including the eight domains that the CISSP exam is based on.

Throughout the course, participants can read, discuss and complete exercises that will help them to identify areas where they need to focus more attention as they prepare for the exam.

Kimberly Young, Executive Director of Continuing and Professional Studies, UMW in Virginia, said: “The continued demand for our program has prompted new registration availability this year and demonstrates a strong return on our investment in the (ISC)² IAP program, funded by the state’s efforts to increase the cybersecurity talent pool in the region and spur on economic growth.”
