It’s one thing to see a problem — and another to act quickly and solve it.
Proper training in the midst of a crisis is critical when it comes to saving lives. No one knows that better than you.
But proper training is just as critical in the boardroom, classroom, and courtroom as it is on the scene of a crisis, when it comes to leading those who save lives. And those who lead effectively can make the difference between disaster and a positive ending when the pressure is on.
The skills you’ve cultivated as a First Responder — thinking on your feet, seeing what others miss, putting the important pieces together — make you a valuable asset to any response team. Furthering your education will only broaden that skillset, expanding your opportunities to bring greater value and save the day.
Liberty University has been designated a National Security Agency and Department of Homeland Security Center of Academic Excellence for Cyber Defense Education (NSA/DHS CAE-CDE) for the Bachelor of Science in Information Technology with Data Networking and Security specialization.*
Additionally, if you’ve received FBINAA training, we can help you turn that experience into college credit!
*Liberty plans to submit other cybersecurity programs for this designation over the next two years.
