Why MasterClass?

The Most Robust

The MasterClass Network Defender Program Program includes 2 industry recognized courses:

  • Certified Network Defender (CND)
  • Ethical Hacking Core Skills (EHCS)

Network defense is one of the most critical tasks in Cybersecurity and the Network Defender MasterClass series is designed to not only train you in the tools and skills needed in order to defend your network, but build your foundation in the operating systems, protocols, and techniques of a network defender.

Other programs drop you into a class and expect you to sink or swim, but the Network Defender MasterClass guides you through building the core skills that the Cybersecurity industry demands, leading to more than a Certification. Through hands-on experience and training in UNIX, Linux, Windows, TCP/IP, the command line, and full industry leading Network Defense instruction, you’ll have the confidence to walk into an interview and walk out with a job.
