In partnership with edX
Cybersecurity is one of the most in-demand global fields today. We’re committed to equipping you with the fundamental skills you need to make an impact while providing unparalleled support and resources before, during, and after your boot camp.
The economic impact of cyber crime is growing: In 2020, the average cost to businesses affected by a data breach in the United States was $8.64 million, up 32% from 2015, and nearly double the global average.1
You can help protect organizations and populations—and change your entire career trajectory. As the world grows more connected and automated (and therefore, more vulnerable), the demand for cybersecurity specialists is on the rise. Information security is a fast-growing field2 and one of Glassdoor’s Top 50 Jobs in America for 2022.3
We know how important certification is for our participants; that’s why we chose CompTIA as a partner to provide you with a complimentary CertMaster test prep tool and an exam voucher to take the CompTIA certification exam of your choice: Security+, Network+, Linux+, Server+, or Cloud+.
While the boot camp itself does not provide test preparation, a portion of the final module is dedicated to helping you learn and leverage the CertMaster Test Prep Tool for the Security+ exam, and provides basic CEH content to get you started.

“The boot camp confirmed my interest in the field, gave me confidence in my ability to learn challenging new material, and provided a great knowledge foundation to launch my career transition.” Micah B.
“My advisor did a great job getting my resume in fighting shape … During our biweekly meetings, his feedback and strategies were instrumental in my job-hunting success. I would recommend a boot camp to anyone solely based on the value derived from Career Services." Kyle K.
“I needed a way to gain new skills quickly and this seemed to be a good option. In the end, it helped [me] to gain the skills I needed and more.” Taylor N.
Continuing and Professional Education (CPE) connects the University of Oregon with regional communities to enable learning outside of the traditional university setting. Working in partnership with UO schools and colleges, selected vendors, and national credentialing associations, we serve more than 5,000 participants annually.
Through Continuing and Professional Education, individuals can access professional development, lifelong learning, and community engagement opportunities that will allow them to grow and thrive without being an admitted participant at the UO.
Continuing and Professional Education programs are self-support and fee-based; they do not use state dollars. CPE reports to the Division of Participant Services and Enrollment Management.
This non-degree program is offered through the University of Oregon Continuing and Professional Education in partnership with edX.
