Frequently Asked Questions
Can I join the program even if I have no cybersecurity experience?
Yes, students can join and succeed in this program even without prior cybersecurity experience. It is helpful, but not required, to have some IT experience and fundamental knowledge. If you are new to the field, please keep in mind that there may be more work for you to do to keep up with the program. However, we will give you all the resources you need throughout the course.
What exactly does this program entail?
The bulk of this program covers the Core User curriculum for Splunk, as well as a portion of Power User and Admin topics. While graduates will be well-prepared to take the Core User Splunk exam after completing the course, ECA is not a certification prep program. The focus of this course is on providing real-world training situations and experience to our students.
Are payment plans available?
Yes, we offer a payment plan option that allows you to spread out payments over 4 months. You'll be able to use a "buy now, pay later" plan using a company like After Pay and Klarna.
How does the course work?
Students will have guided detail videos when throughout the week when we are not in class. The videos will go over the lesson plans and labs that will explained in further depth during the virtual classes. Classes will be interactive, and you are encouraged to share your opinions on the various Cyber topics that will be discussed. For anyone that is not able to make it for the virtual class the classes will be recorded.
How do I know if I'm a good fit?
Great question. We look for students who are eager to upskill in Splunk and SIEM technologies to advance their cybersecurity careers. Before being accepted into the program, we send out a survey and complete 1-on-1 screening to ensure all students are positioned for success.
