My desire to work with technology in an education setting has produced a 20+ year career as a post-secondary technology educator. Many student successes, challenging opportunities and working with great education professionals in positive learning environments has made time fly.
Cyber security professionals are not created in nine months of training, but over years of hands-on application, research and experience. AmCC seeks to develop a community for IT professionals to find pertinent information, access to experienced professionals and contribute through tutoring and mentoring.
My career as a technology educator began with The Chubb Institute which then became Anthem Institute in North Brunswick New Jersey. As Senior Instructor, Program Manager and acting Director of Education, I was exposed to many teaching styles across technology and health programs. I also served as an instructor at ITT and recently Brookdale Community College for their STEM program.
I have successfully passed Certified Ethical Hacker, Security Plus, Network Plus, Server Plus, A Plus, many Microsoft certifications and the HiTrust certification.
My position as a SIEM administrator provided real world experience to share with students. This also exposed the significant deficit of qualified cyber security professionals and the need to elevate IT professionals to Cyber Security Professionals in America.
AmCC offers IT professionals and newbies the resources to successfully pass IT certifications.
