Cybersecurity + Ops
A 20-week program for anyone who wants to start their career in this high-demand industry. Our classes are instructor-led in a virtual classroom setting.
At Savvy Coders, we see the massive hiring demand in the field of Cybersecurity + Ops. Wanting to offer the best boot camp on the market, we partnered with Code Fellows to bring training in this growing field to the St. Louis area. Our program offers an in-depth look at Cybersecurity and Operations from the ground up. The course is taught by professionals in the Cyber community and is broken down into 4 units.
Our classes are instructor-led in a small, virtual classroom. This program is taught at an accelerated pace so that after just 20 weeks, students can tackle many of the basics needed to start them on a path towards a career in Cybersecurity. Every class will focus on what one needs to know (and nothing they don’t).
We want to help answer that increasing demand for Cybersecurity and Operations through helping our students out by any means necessary so that they are able to meet that demand after they graduate from Savvy Coders. We strive to help our students take control of their future, one month at a time.
If you are looking for a place to start…then this course is for you!
