About the Program
At IMPACT, we understand that as a working professional, your time is valuable. Our structured, self-paced learning activities are designed for busy adults and delivered asynchronously online, meaning you can get the training you need at times that are most convenient to you. Our competency-based training approach teaches specific, job-related skills that will prepare you to get ahead in your field. The innovative competency-based education model allows you to receive credits based on skills developed by your previous work experience.
The Vinod Chachra IMPACT Lab is currently focused on three main workforce development areas: cybersecurity, geospatial intelligence and education.
Courses & Requirements
The Cybersecurity Certificate program enables working adults to learn online, at their own pace, to master critical cybersecurity workplace competencies. The Cybersecurity Certificate Program is mapped directly to industry standards (e.g., NIST) and professional certifications (e.g., CompTIA Security+). The program also provides extensive hands-on experience in state-of-the-art virtualized remote labs. In addition, Radford University has been designated as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education by both the National Security Agency and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
