Avg Rating:5.0 ( 6 reviews )

NexGenT is an immersive, military-grade cybersecurity bootcamp offering network engineering and advanced cybersecurity online and in-person at campuses in San Jose, California and Austin, Texas. NexGenT was founded by two veterans with the goal to train other veterans for the cybersecurity job market. Graduates of the NexGenT cybersecurity boocamp become NexGenT Cyber Security Associate (NCSA) certified. Graduates of the network engineering bootcamp receive certification as a Full Stack Network Associate (FSNA) certified, a Full Stack Networking Professional (FSNP), and Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA). Full-time and part-time programs are available. The part-time track caters to the needs of students who are completing the bootcamp while working full-time.

During the network engineering curriculum, students learn about IT architecture and networks using tools such as Cisco IOS Command Line, Cisco Packet Tracer, terminal emulators, packet sniffer, TFTP and FTP server/client, syslog servers and more. During the Cyber Security Advanced Training portion of the program, students will learn how to identify and analyze threats, about the fundamentals of cryptography, network security, secure protocols, and more. The bootcamp provides students with the opportunity to work on multiple labs. Students learn how to build networks that simulate full-scale, real-world networks. Within the cybersecurity training, students participate in 25 virtualized labs to identify and analyze threats to a system. Students explore tools such as Wireshark, metasploit, nmap, VPS, CVSS, CVE, IPSec, and more. Students have access to weekly, scheduled coaching and three mentoring sessions as well as a workbook containing supplemental material, program guides, labs, and homework.

There is a simple, online application for the Cybersecurity and the Network Engineer programs. After an application is submitted, an admissions team member calls the prospective student for an interview. NexGenT offers an Income Share Agreement to cover tuition. Once the bootcamp graduate is making a salary over $40,000, the graduate will owe 10% of their income to NexGenT until tuition is paid for. NexGenT aims to get all bootcamp graduates a job within 12 weeks of graduation.

      I enrolled in the Full Stack Network Engineer program which consisted of CCNA training and designing real-world deployments. I was a part of that program for about 6 months and they have weekly mentor calls which are very helpful. NexGenT has one of the best content for entry-level Network Engineers or people trying to break into IT. The instructors over there are amazing and almost all of them are in the IT industry for about 10 years. The best thing that I think sets NexGenT apart from other academies is their level of involvement in your career and a sense of belonging in their online community. Students try to help each other throughout the day and I've also had one of the instructors solve my doubt at about 2 am. All in all, it's a great learning academy and a sure-fire way to kickstart your career in IT.

      Wow, oh wow. Now, there are many educational institutions that can teach you material. In fact, you can teach yourself material online with little effort these days. But what most people lack is not an abundance of information and resources but instead a dedicated path. This path is very straight and narrow with NexGenT. Don't take what I said the wrong way. Straight and narrow simply means structured and intentional. NexGenT also does what other universities and online programs lack; Hands-on Training. The Cybersecurity course walks us through one module at a time, continuously building upon itself with live coachings and a cyber-range where we can practice our skills in a virtualized environment. The cyber range alone is a stand-out for NexGenT but the entire company as a whole does something that many organizations fail to do. NexGenT INVESTS in their students. Like the good father who teaches and disciplines his son, NexGenT is there to guide your every step and help you correct mistakes, not to mention set you up professionally regarding your future career. I HIGHLY recommend anyone that has been on the fence about getting into an online program (and even more so cybersecurity) reach out to NexGenT, Terry, Jacob, and all the team, and see how they can help you #levelup your life.

      First week in, and what can I say? One of the best decisions I have made in my life to further my career. I am currently enrolled in a 6 month CyberSecurity program covering the basics of networking, cryptography, and so much more. I highly suggest anyone looking into a career transition or some job security to check out what they have to offer at https://www.nexgent.com There are a couple different payment plans (including an Income Share Agreement - with no money down upfront) Cybersecurity is everywhere we look... Especially as our digital lives become increasingly more prevalent due to the pandemic & online data storage. The #NexGenT staff is incredibly passionate about the program and are great at getting you pumped to learn the material. Cybersecurity is here to stay. There is likely more sensitive data on your mobile-device/computer than in your entire household. If you lock your doors at night, why wouldn't the same concept apply to securing all your online data? Check the Bureau of Labor Statistics and other employment tracking websites for proof. Cyber positions have continued to grow in demand even as a result of the pandemic, layoffs, and unemployment rates. How many other industries can say the same? Their platform is easy to use & includes a well-staffed, knowledgeable Career Services Team to help you #LevelUp and not only get your foot in the door but to accomplish all your dreams, goals, and visions you have for your life.

      Got my current job because of my training with NexGenT!!

      I can't stress enough about how NexGenT's instructors make the course materials so easily understood. I've tried other Network Engineering courses from another online school and I wasn't able to learn. 

      Jacob Hess is a great instructor! I can't wait to skill up in their new cyber security program!

    Thanks!
