Cohorts

Experience 16-weeks of immersive and hands-on cybersecurity training. Students are expected to spend a total of 20 hours per week on Evolve Academy studies. Students watch pre-recorded lectures and lab tutorials before coming to class, which allows more time to focus on practical skills learned through labs. The first 30 minutes of class sessions are spent addressing student questions, reviewing key concepts and discussing how they apply in a real work environment. Then, students work in smaller teams on the labs and the real work apprenticeship project with instructor and TA support.

IN-PERSON Bootcamp
Cohort meets Monday - Thursday from 6:00pm to 9:00pm CT, and every other Saturday from 10:00am to 3:00pm CT.

REMOTE Bootcamp
Cohort meets live-online through video conference Monday - Thursday from 7:00pm to 9:00pm CT, and every other Saturday from 10:00am to 3:00pm CT.
