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.

        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!
