This certificate is designed to upgrade junior system administrator professional’s skills to begin a career as an Advanced Cyber Incident Responder in an enterprise environment. An Advanced Cyber Incident Responder (ACIR) performs a wide range of planning, investigation, analysis, research, documentation, reporting, recovery, and support tasks required to respond to a cyber incident. The ACIR may only be tasked to provide incident advice or have responsibility for completely restoring system functionality and data integrity. Students will complete ACIR 200, 210, 220, and 230 in a hybrid learning environment. Lectures, reading, exercises, and video demonstrations are all completed online. Students will typically spend 3 or more hours outside of the classroom doing online learning for every hour spent in the classroom. Students will spend their classroom time performing / demonstrating the hands-on skills that they learned online.
