Paragon Cyber Solutions Announces Cybersecurity Registered Apprenticeship Program
Tampa, FL, October 08, 2020 --( Paragon Cyber Solutions, LLC is proud to offer an approved competency-based cybersecurity apprenticeship program. Apprentices gain hand-on, real world experience from industry experts.

“The cybersecurity field lacks qualified staff,” says Courtney H. Jackson, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Paragon Cyber Solutions. “The interest in there; however, it’s very difficult for job seekers to obtain real-world, hands-on experience because employers typically require years of experience before offering a candidate a job opportunity. There are also cybersecurity students that complete degree programs with the expectation of employment only to find out that they must have real world experience in order to land their first cybersecurity role. How do they gain hands-on experience if no one will give them a chance? Our cybersecurity apprenticeship program is designed to bridge that gap by providing 2000 hours of hands-on experience working directly with our team, in addition to relevant classroom instruction by senior level staff, including a local PhD professor.”
