More than 300,000 employees are needed to fill open cybersecurity jobs in the United States (Source).

Backed by Purdue’s world-class cybersecurity experts, the Cyber Education Network Training Resources (CENTR) provides a unique suite of education and workforce training that prepares employees for successful cybersecurity careers. CENTR training includes certification exam prep, bootcamp-style training and custom security courses.

The CENTR supports Purdue Cyber Apprenticeship Program (PCAP) to provide training for cybersecurity-specific certifications and badges.
