Warrior to Cyber Warrior (W2CW) Gives Back on Veterans Day: Free Cyber Training and Certifications for Vets and Active Duty Military

Warrior to Cyber Warrior LogoArlington VA, November 10th, 2017 - In honor of Veterans Day, the non-profit Warrior to Cyber Warrior (W2CW) Foundation today announced a nationwide program to provide Veterans of the US Armed Forces with free cybersecurity training and certifications. This program builds on the success of W2CW’s 2016 Veterans Day certification offer. It expands the 2016 initiative to include free access to online training that equips Veterans with the skills they need to thrive as cyber professionals.

Made possible through a generous donation from the Lunarline School of Cybersecurity (SCS), this nationwide cybersecurity training and certification program has two components. First, all Veterans and Active Duty Military are entitled to take a free, one-day online course entitled Introduction to the Department of Defense (DoD) Risk Management Framework (RMF). This course will provide Veterans with an online overview of the DoD RMF, used by the DoD to manage and improve system security. Interested Veterans should email an expression of interest to VetsDay2017@w2cw.org to be put on the waiting list for course registration.

Additionally, all Veterans and Active Duty Military are entitled to take one Cyber Certified Expert (CCE) certification exam free of charge. The CCE program offers nearly three dozen certifications covering every conceivable cyber discipline. To register for a free certification simply visit the SCS website and follow the instructions provided for Veterans and Active Duty Military.

“As a service-disabled Veteran I’ve watched many of my fellow service men and women struggle to make the transition to civilian life,” said W2CW founding Board Member Waylon Krush. “We started W2CW to help Veterans secure high paying cyber careers. With this initiative, we hope to extend our training and certifications to all Veterans and Active Duty Military and expand the ranks of cyber warriors who have the skills needed to fight back against modern cybercrime.”
