In my last post, I talked about one of the many websites that provides training in exchange for CEUs. Continuing Education (Units?) are used to renew licenses or certifications, or are just good resume boosters. Oh yeah - and it's free!
There are some similar options that I'd like to share with you today as a follow-up! I'm not certain if these are redeemable for CEUs for your program, but certificates are also available. If the FEMA courses weren't really your vibe, here are some similar counterparts:
- Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Virtual Learning Portal has beginner and intermediate classes which take about few hours a piece. some of the topics may be familiar to seasoned practitioners, but introduce concepts a little further than noob level. Great training for those who need to understand larger security concerns, such as those in management positions.
- CISA also has a second free training portal called FEDeral Virtual Training Environment with a slew of free courses. 101 Coding for the Public, 101 Reverse Engineering, and Cloud Computing Security are a few of the choices they have available which students may find useful.
- The Center for Homeland Defense and Security (CHDS) Naval Postgradude School Self-Study Courses have many courses in homeland security, security, and terrorism. It's real DHS-y if you get what I mean, but the courses are interesting are deserved to be listed.
