Cybersecurity Apprenticeship

Studies and statistics show that the Cybersecurity Workforce gap is expected to hit 2 million Worldwide over the next few years. The objective of this program is to address the cybersecurity workforce gap by preparing a non-traditional entry-level and junior-level workforce for careers in cybersecurity. Cybersecurity is a new and emerging apprenticeship occupation recognized by the United States Department of Labor (DOL) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

In 2018, Carter Enterprise Solutions, LLC was approved by the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation (DLLR) as a Registered Apprenticeship under the Maryland Apprenticeship and Training Program (MATP).

Our apprenticeship model was designed to attract new talent and cultivate a solid cybersecurity workforce that is competitive and prepared to help protect our Nation’s infrastructures. The program focuses on core competencies that highlight the knowledge, skills, abilities, and characteristics necessary to perform critical work tasks, specific functions, or operate in a Cybersecurity role or position. The course curriculums are designed to prepare candidates for cybersecurity disciplines that align with the NIST 800-181, National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education, Cybersecurity Workforce Framework (NICE Framework).

With this approval, our program became the 1st Cybersecurity-Specific Apprenticeship in the State of Maryland as well as the 14th Cybersecurity Apprenticeship recognized by DOL in the United States.
