The Network Security Certificate provides a comprehensive overview of network security. You will gain knowledge and insight into the roles and responsibilities of the network security professional. This is an interactive program with plenty of opportunity for discussion, as well as practical exercises to reinforce learning. Upon completion of the program, you will be prepared to take CompTIA's Security + Certification Exam. Candidates are recommended to have two years experience in a networking role with preexisting knowledge of TCP/IP, experience in a security related role, Network+ or equivalent certification or have completed the Owens Community College Network Administration Certificate Program. Please contact the Chair of Information Systems for prerequisite waivers if required.
At this time, the Network and Systems Security Certificate does not qualify for federal financial aid, which includes grants, loans, and work-study. If cost is a barrier, please speak with an Owens advisor for additional information.
