- Just Finished the Intro course- 6/2/2020MJIve always wanted a career In Cybersecurity and figured now would be the best time to transition from hospitality. I started out with the intro course, which is $500 and it’s okay, they discuss (not in much detail) a broad range of topics related to cybersecurity, introduce VMs and provide ISOs and exercises to get your feet wet. The intro course basically prepares you for what your going to do in the main course. You have to pass a test to be invited to the main course, but let’s be real I’m sure they want the $$ so I doubt if anyone really wanted to proceed to the full thing they would let them in.
Some things that were promised were not delivered during in the intro course. No virtual labs were offered even though they said they would be, they did not go into detail into a lot of exercises that were in the textbook. But they consistently said they will go through everything in the main course.
The total cost of the program is $15,500 and they push you trying to join VERY hard, which makes me skeptical, but it is UM and they do have a good reputation so I was willing to risk it l, and I begin the main course on June 8th. I’ll post a review after I’ve completed it.
- A very solid Investment in your future- 12/12/2019Alvaro J. Nino • Graduate • Course: Cyber Security Professional Bootcamp • Campus: Miami
Cyber Security is an area that is growing, and it needs qualified professionals. I wanted to reinvest in myself, to grow on the field i love. I looked at other programs, but i was not seeing that i could grow more from where i was in I.T.
I was atracted initially by the UM brand. The reality was better than that. The professors are in the industry, on real world tasks that reflect what is being taught in the classrooms, they live and breathe Cyber Security. I had the privilege to see students with little to no I.T. experience grow. They graduated with the skills needed to change their lives. They are now Cyber Security professionals, ready to provide the right level of skills and knowledge to protect, educate end users, and improve the level of I.T. Security a business needs on this day and age.
If you are on the fence about making the right choice, i can tell you that going to the UM Cyber Security program is the right choice.
The way that I approach my work now is always more interesting, and more challenging, because of what i learned at UM. I am now looking into so many other avenues of work because of that program, and i am now always eager to learn more.
- Best Choice I've Made in the Last 5 Years- 9/6/2019John • Graduate • Course: Cyber Security Professional Bootcamp • Campus: Miami
I originally signed up for the UM namesake but stayed for the in-depth lectures taught by invested instructors. I knew I wanted a career change and after attending UM's demo day, I decided cyber security was a $$-rewarding option that doesn't require the traditional college degree. I chose UM's program because it doesn't require any prior experience in tech and the people involved in admissions were super helpful and continued to support me throughout the entire program. I graduated last month with a standing job offer making more money than I've ever made in my life. If you're considering a career in tech, check out this Cyber Security program
