We provide students training plans and material to strengthen soft and hard cybersecurity skills. Through our program, students can acquire preliminary cybersecurity certifications that will allow them to get hands-on experience in the field. Certifications provide credibility both for the Free Cyber Clinic and the students when conducting our E.A.R. method for small businesses (see the Services page for more details).
Real World Experience
Once a student obtains their preliminary cybersecurity certification, they are able to enter the field and begin helping the community. When conducting our E.A.R method, students are able to apply what they have learned, interact with clients, and complete many of the same duties they will have as a future cybersecurity professional. With this, students are able to gain the real world experience they need to enter the cybersecurity industry.
The Free Cyber Clinic offers pipeline opportunities for our members to get internships or jobs based on the certifications and experience they gain while part of the clinic. In addition, the Free Cyber Clinic has partners in the industry that are more open to mentor and provide opportunities to Free Cyber Clinic members.
