“So far this year, U.S. employers alone have posted more than 103,000 job openings for cybersecurity engineers and analysts, a 30-percent increase over the same period in 2017,” said Joe Padin, CompTIA Vice President for U.S. Federal and Education Certification.
“CompTIA is committed to raising awareness about the critical importance of cybersecurity; to build competencies and skills among cybersecurity professionals around the world; and to attract new candidates into the cybersecurity workforce,” Padin continued. “We’re pleased to work with Learning Tree as an important strategic partner in this effort.”
In support of Cybersecurity Awareness Month recognized worldwide, Learning Tree collaborated with industry-recognized organizations to reframe training as defined learning paths aimed at this talent deficit at all levels.
“As a top National Accredited Training Center (ATC) in partnership with EC-Council, Learning Tree is greatly expanding their cybersecurity training portfolio in further closing the skills gap for many organizations,” said Todd York, EC Council Partner Development Manager.
