    Great Choice for Cyber!

    SecureSet Academy has amazing instructors who can take you from being a beginner in all things cyber to a proficient level. Thanks to SecureSet and its instructors I have had two high level job offers with well known cyber companies, all without prior experience in the field! I highly recommend SecureSet to anyone looking to go down the cyber career path.

    Great Experience!

    SecureSet Academy is a great resource in terms of academics, instructors, campus, and social scene. I transferred from my military to the civilian life while studying at SecureSet and it was definitely the right decision. A lot of direct practical experience with different software, Operating Systems, "hacking" tools, case study, and a lot of work, but manageable. It was definitelly an intense cyber bootcamp for a only 6 month period. Overall, great experience.

    Education and hands on experience all in one place!

    Coming up on just over a year working for great company I cannot help but be amazed on how graduating from the CORE program at SecureSet impacted my life! I would have never been able to land my perfect job without the help of SecureSet Academy. Not only did they help ease my transition from military life to civilian life, but they also gave me the tools needed to succeed. As an alumni from the first CORE class in Colorado Springs, I am incredibly proud of the progress made to furthe...

    Know what you are getting (HUNT graduate)

    I attended the HUNT program just over a year ago.  I am not going to give you the individual gripes that I personally have, as I do not believe that helps anyone.  Instead here are the pros and cons:

    Pros:
    If you are a veteran, you will be decently taken care of.  Especially if your GI Bill covers it in full. (However, I would STRONGLY suggest you either use your GI Bill to attend a college or just get your certifications through one of the many veteran programs available.  ...

    The Real Deal

    My experience at SecureSet Academy was phenomenal.   Even though I entered with only limited IT experience, SecureSet thoroughly provided me with the tools and training I needed to jumpstart a career in Cyber Security.   The full-time program is highly intense and challenging, packing a year's worth of accredited material into six months.  It is the real deal.

    Each of the teachers were venerable experts in their respective fields; individuals who are industry leaders even outside...

    A great experience

    SecureSet Academy was a great opportunity to be a part of.  The teachers there were not only experts in the field that they taught, but they took the time to not only teach you the theroy, but also the technical skills and made sure you understood each concept that was covered.  It is a great program to be a part of it you want to start a career in cyber security.

    Despite Negative Reviews

    I thought secureset was extremely helpful program. I received a well rounded education in cyber security, from hacking, to forensics, analysis, python, different Linux systems and gave me the basic fundamentals of network set up and trouble shooting. The GRC portion was a bit arbitrary and could use some looking at. Also many of the lesson plans need to be updated as there would be wrong steps to follow. That could be considered a good or bad thing as this requires people to problem solve ...

    Not worth it

    I agree with several other reviewers for this coding bootcamp, know before you pay. Many people that I have talked to who attended the CORE, PREP is better than the CORE Program, you're also spending less money 1,500 vs 20,000. If you are Civilian, then I would not recommend the Colorado Springs location, since it caters to mostly cleared military veterans or active personel. Plus, after graduation you simply get a Technicial Diploma and no certifications. Also, this term the graduation ce...

    Learned next to nothing

    We’ve just begun the ‘Capstone’ project, and I feel like I’ve learned next to nothing, as does everyone else in the class. The “labs” were written in broken English and often did not work, the servers and licensing for the programs  were broken and not available for most of the program and there’s so many unnecessary classes you’ll spend more time researching politics and philosophy than learning IT. The teachers are all smart and want to teach you but the entire thing is so rushed that yo...
