Microsoft Learn continues to grow

Microsoft remains committed to provide the best-in-class training experiences by transitioning all courseware from the Skillpipe Reader to Microsoft Learn over the past year. Microsoft Official Course content will no longer be accessible from users’ bookshelves on Skillpipe as of December 31, 2023.  If you aren’t familiar with the Microsoft Learn platform, now is the time to check it out!

As part of the growth, the new Microsoft Applied Skills credential is now available on the Microsoft Learn platform. After attending training, prove that you have the skills required for specific projects, products, or real-world problems.

CompTIA CySA+ (CS0-003) revision now available

The CompTIA CySA+ is the world’s premier certification for cybersecurity analysts. CompTIA’s State of the Tech Workforce report shows that demand for skilled cybersecurity analysts will remain strong, with growth that’s expected to be 253% above the national rate over the next 10 years. The CySA+ certification is designed specifically for cybersecurity analysts and is globally recognized.

CompTIA recently changed the exam objectives and training content for CYSA+ to remain current with recent security trends. Through interviews with incident response managers and security operations center (SOC) managers to find the most relevant skills needed for cybersecurity analysts, the new course and exam takes into account recent cybersecurity attacks and threat patterns.

According to our instructor, Troy Stoneking, “CYSA+ CS0-003 is the most applicable version of CYSA+ I’ve ever seen. CompTIA has done very well in creating a version that aligns with both the day-to-day activities of a cybersecurity analyst, while also showing how to understand and respond to the most current threats to organizations.” 

Register for our February 19 – 23, 2024 CompTIA CySA+ class prior to December 30, 2023, and we will provide you with an exam voucher ($392 value) when we deliver your electronic materials!* 

"Everything I learned had real-life examples of what I experience in my work field on a day-to-day basis." – CompTIA CySA+ Student

* Does not apply to Diamond Day enrollments or any other discount. Exam vouchers are valid for 12 months from the date of purchase.
