Did you know that passing the CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CYSA+) exam also renews your CompTIA Security+ certification? While the CompTIA Security+ credential validates that you have baseline, entry-level skills, the CYSA+ focuses on defense through incident detection and response at the intermediate-skills level of the cybersecurity career path.
To find out more about the CYSA+ workforce certification course, join our next class scheduled February 4-8, 2019.
"I appreciated the virtual classroom! Helped me greatly."
The new Troubleshooting Windows Server 2016 Core Technologies course from Microsoft Learning covers a wide variety of troubleshooting scenarios that a network administrator might encounter in their work.

"Penny was awesome! I really enjoyed her instruction with this course."
Watch for new Microsoft certification tracks using the Job Task Analysis (JTA) identification of roles that are in the marketplace. They’re not necessarily Microsoft roles, but those that are industry-validated. The process analyzes tasks and skills that the learner needs to know to complete that job in that particular role. Microsoft Azure and Office 365 roles are the first to release with more roles to follow!
Reminder, all Microsoft Official Courses include a complimentary MCP exam voucher! ($165 value)
The Administering Cisco Unified Communication Manager and Connection (ACUCM w/AUC) course continues to be our most attended Cisco class at LRS Education Services. This course teaches the concepts of IP telephony based in system administration, including its function, features, and configuration. In addition, it provides administrators with the necessary skills to perform their day-to-day job functions using the Cisco Unity Connection system. This course includes supplemental learning assets including a video reference library and delta sessions as part of a 365-day learning experience!
"He was knowledgeable and presented the material, which is highly technical, in an understandable manner."
On April 16, 2018 the National Institute of Standards and Technology released the new version of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (NCSF). Based on feedback from experts on the front lines our NCSF courses have been updated and streamlined to remove content that wasn’t relevant in the marketplace. The changes allow us to focus on the NIST Risk Management Framework for the implementation and improvement of risk management within any organization! Although it wasn’t necessary, we made sure our staff completed certification in the new revision. Join one of our NCSF training courses to acquire the skills needed to address and manage cybersecurity risks in a cost-effective way based on YOUR business needs
