According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, it’s estimated that the employment of information security analysts will grow 31% from 2019 to 2029. CompTIA Security+ is the first security certification IT professionals should earn. Sandhills Community College Continuing Education’s Technology division is offering an online CompTIA Security+ class in April.
This is a GEER Scholarship qualified class. The scholarship is based on need and will award up to $750 per student and can be used for tuition, fees, book, supplies, credentialing tests, transportation, childcare, and other components as deemed necessary. Find out more about this scholarship at sandhills.edu/available-funds-for-your-training.
“CompTIA Security+” will be held online. Online classes are taken from a computer or digital tablet. Sessions are presented live and students interact in real-time with the instructor and fellow classmates through the camera, microphone, or typing in a chat window.
“CompTIA Security+” establishes the core knowledge required of any cybersecurity role and provides a springboard to intermediate-level cybersecurity jobs. Security+ incorporates best practices in hands-on troubleshooting to ensure security professionals have practical security problem-solving skills. Cybersecurity professionals with Security+ know how to address security incidents – not just identify them. This class is a continuation of the IT Credentials and Cybersecurity track for the students who complete the A+ and Network+ courses or hold those two certifications or have equivalent knowledge and experience.
Held on Tuesdays-Thursdays, April 27-July 29 from 6-9 p.m., the online class CompTIA Security+ will cost $185 plus the $129 cost of software.
Seats are still available. To register, call Continuing Education at (910) 695-3980 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. All major credit cards are accepted. Pre-register at sandhills.edu/cereg.
Campus Health Precautions
For the continued safety and well-being of students, faculty, and staff, Sandhills Community College has installed additional hand sanitizing stations on campus and a deep cleaning is being carried out each evening using EPA-approved disinfectants and foggers. A campus-wide sanitizing wipe down of door pulls and light switches is done twice each weekday and the use of water fountains has been discontinued. Service desk shields have been installed in high traffic areas.
Additional Continuing Education classes will begin in May and plans for summer classes are currently being made. The summer semester flightPath will be mailed to all Moore and Hoke County homes in early May and will contain all Continuing Education classes.
Summer semester curriculum (college credit) classes are open to current, returning, and new students. Local students attending colleges outside of the area are welcome to take courses this summer at SCC. Credits can transfer back to the university, saving students time and money. New students can apply online, and an advisor will assist in registering for classes. Current or returning students may register using Self-Service or by meeting with their Advisor.
High school juniors and seniors can take SCC classes at no cost by enrolling in the Career and College Program (CCP). The program has 47 Career Technical pathways, 13 Continuing Education pathways and 54 college transfer courses.
