Extra notes not on the program webpage:

  • The Security Certification Scholarship
    • Bad news: it does not include the cost of your certificaiton exam. (ICDT is considering a program to aid in this expense.)
    • Good news: it does not matter if you pass it, but you must attempt it.  
  • Security+ and CyberOps courses are offered on a fairly regular basis (nearly every 10 weeks). CEH and Cloud are not as consistent, but usually available every few cycles. 
  • ALL offerings are online, including research and summer programs.  
  • Language training/ proficiency is in Chinese. No other options are available for this program.
