WHY US?

The Dojo Difference

A Coding Dojo Cybersecurity certification can make you stand out from other bootcamps’ grads and makes you mission-ready for a challenging and rewarding career on day one

Have a tactical advantage on day one with CySA+ certification.

Cybersecurity is a highly standardized field with a range of skills certifications. CompTIA Security+ is the bootcamp standard, but we take you further - adding the CySA+ certification. With both of these certifications on your resume, you lead the way for entry-level positions.

No professional experience requirements

Unlike other bootcamps that require work experience in IT or related field or a 4-year degree, we recognize that many Cyber professionals are self-taught. You prove your skills with an entrance exam instead of resume requirements.

Extensive hands-on training

Our Cybersecurity bootcamp features extensive offensive and defensive experience within our sandbox. Near the end of course, up to 75% of your time is spent in labs, attacking and defending against each other in Capture the Flag and other exercises. You’ll graduate mission-ready with an unparalleled informed perspective on cybersecurity and be ready to hit the ground running.

You've Got Questions We've Got Answers

  • Why should I join the Cybersecurity program with Coding Dojo?

    Our professional-grade program will give you the skills, insights, and information to build the foundation for your successful career in cybersecurity. Our cybersecurity instructors have decades of experience in the field, so you’ll get real-world, up-to-date instruction and guidance. The heavy emphasis on lab work means you’ll be learning by doing - deploying attacks and defending against others, identifying potential frontiers where attackers might strike, and more. Finally, Coding Dojo’s unmatched reputation for career success and support will ensure you’re ready at graduation to move into a successful and rewarding career.

  • What type of experience do I need?

    Unlike our other programs, Cybersecurity does require an entrance exam. 2-3 years of working experience in an IT role is also recommended, but not required. If you have previously graduated from one of our software development courses, you will be prepared to tackle the Cybersecurity curriculum, provided you pass the entrance exam.

  • What are the technical requirements to start the program?

    You’ll need a personal computer or laptop (either Windows or a Mac is fine). We recommend at least 30GB of HD space (40GB preferred) and 8GB of RAM minimum (16GB preferred). You’ll also need a stable internet connection, a modern web browser such as Firefox, Chrome, or Safari, and a webcam.

  • What is the entrance exam like?

    The entrance exam is comprised of 30 multiple choice questions on cybersecurity knowledge and logical thinking. Feel free to utilize online resources to complete the assessment. Please note, you must complete the entire exam in one sitting, so be sure you have a stable internet connection before starting. Finally, you will only be able to take the exam once per application.

  • What certifications will I be able to get after this program?

    You will be able to take the CompTIA Security+ exam in week 12 of the program and the CompTIA CySA+ in week 24. The curriculum will also provide material to help prepare you to take CASP+, PenTest+, ECSA and GSEC - however, these additional certifications are not covered in the cost of tuition, and may require additional study and previous experience in a cybersecurity or IT field.

  • Do you cover the cost of the certifications?

    Yes! The cost of the CompTIA Security+ and CySA+ certifications are covered in the cost of your tuition. Should you wish to take any additional certifications, you’ll need to pay for those yourself.

  • How many people will be in class? Will instructors be able to answer my questions?

    Our Cybersecurity program is currently capped at 24 students. Our instructors always have office hours, and are only teaching 1 or 2 classes at a time to make sure they can answer your questions.

  • I can’t pay during the program; what are my options to defer payment?

    We offer a range of financing options. Schedule a call with Admissions to discuss the right financing options for you!

  • What happens if it’s too difficult for me and I have to drop out?

    If you find yourself struggling, reach out to both your instructor and the student support team. Together, we will do our absolute best to keep you on track and feeling confident about the material.
