Our Integrated Learning Model

For all of our programs, we have developed a unique integrated learning model that optimizes skills training and promotes deep understanding of the material. We based this model on our extensive experience delivering outcome-based training and with the input and insight of the top practitioners and instructors in each field.

The model consists of four crucial elements required for deep learning:


Each program begins and ends with an assessment, which is critical to ensuring that every student achieves their learning objectives. Our pre-program assessment identifies the strengths and weaknesses of each student to allow instructors and coaches to personalize their teaching interactions to meet participants where they are. Our post-program assessment allows us to assess and understand student progress and identify any areas where the student may need additional support.


At the core of each program is in-depth instructor-led training offered both in person and virtually to accommodate all student needs. In either case, students benefit from live lessons and interactions with experienced instructors with significant real-world experience in their areas of expertise, as well as with their fellow classmates. This training ranges from 5 to 7 full courses, depending on the program, each of which address a fundamental topic of the program’s area of focus.


The group coaching we offer in between each course is where some of the most important learning of our programs happens. With one dedicated coach throughout the program, students have the opportunity to regularly reflect on what they have learned, ask follow-up questions, dialogue with peers, and dig deep into the material to ensure a complete understanding.


Collaboration is a powerful element of our integrated learning model that maximizes deep learning by sharing experiences, knowledge, and tools among students (and instructors). This sharing of information creates a multiplier effect that not only improves learning outcomes but also provides opportunities to practice accountability, cooperation, communication, and more generally to expand one’s emotional intelligence and relationship management.

The Cybersecurity Foundational Professional Certificate Program is comprised of the following modules:

The Program Kickoff serves as a crucial introductory event for participants, providing them with a valuable opportunity to connect with their program coach. During this session, participants will not only establish a rapport with their coach but also gain a clear understanding of the desired outcomes aligned with their organization's goals. 

The Knowledge & Skills Assessment is used to assess cyber skills and knowledge. The results of these KSA's will be used by instructors and coaches to identify participant opportunities for improvement during module deliveries and coaching sessions. The pre-program KSA will establish a baseline to compare against the post-program KSA, which will show competency gained during the program. 

There are five coaching sessions between five modules. The purpose of these coaching sessions is to review the prior modules, solidify the learning and discuss steps involved in obtaining professional certifications. The coach’s role is to support participants in implementing and adopting the actions discussed during the coaching sessions.
