CyberNB and Lighthouse Labs Announce Launch of Cyber Bootcamp to Meet Growing Demand for Cybersecurity Talent

New 12-week virtual training program gives non-IT professionals in-demand

skills for careers in the booming cybersecurity industry    

CyberNB Inc. and Canadian tech education leader Lighthouse Labs are thrilled to announce the launch of Cyber Bootcamp, a new online training program that, in just 12 weeks, gives students with non-technical backgrounds the skills and training they need to launch a career in cybersecurity. Graduates will be qualified for roles such as a Cybersecurity Specialist or Technician, a SOC Analyst Level 1, or a Cybersecurity Incident Analyst or Responder. As part of the program, graduates will be matched with employers from across the country.

 

“As Canada’s top programming and coding bootcamp, Lighthouse Labs was a natural partner in this ground-breaking training program,” says Dillon Donahue, CyberNB’s Director of Workforce & Skills. “They’re a national leader in finding the best ways to train the next generation of tech workers, and we’re excited to apply their approach to cybersecurity training. “

 

Since 2013, Lighthouse Labs’s hands-on and accelerated coding bootcamps have launched the tech careers of over 1,500 graduates, with over 95% of job-seeking alumni finding work within six months in 2019.

 

“Partnering with CyberNB on the Cyber Bootcamp was a perfect fit for us,” says Jeremy Shaki, CEO of Lighthouse Labs. “Their focus on training the next generation of cybersecurity professionals aligns with our goals to empower students, launch careers, and contribute to the incredible growth of Canada's tech industry.”

 

Lighthouse Labs is currently offering fully remote learning, and the Cyber Bootcamp will be open to students across Canada. While open to anyone looking to pursue a career in the cybersecurity industry, the Cyber Bootcamp is a particularly excellent up-skilling option for recent graduates, exiting military personnel looking to transfer their security experience into the tech sector, and people looking to pivot in their careers.

 

Following an introductory self-study prep course on computer operations, students will be taken through a 12-week curriculum. Delivered through a mix of live online classrooms and self-guided learning, each week of the program features a different theme, including server administration, network security, threat modelling and analysis and incident response.

 

The program also has a strong workforce connection component. CyberNB is working with its partners and members across the country to promote its job-matching service to the industry. Following the program, CyberNB will provide graduates with career readiness and job placement services, matching students and employers to help to fill the jobs gap and launch many exciting new cybersecurity careers.

 

The job opportunities for graduates are extensive. There is a growing demand for cybersecurity talent, with over 6,000 open positions in Canada, and the talent shortfall continues to grow.

 

The first Cyber Bootcamp cohort will start on September 13, 2021. For more information on Cyber Bootcamp and how to apply, visit: https://cybernb.ca/CyberBootcamp.htm
