IT professionals in the Fredericksburg area will soon be able to train for one of the industry’s most sought-after cybersecurity certifications without having to leave the region.

UMW is leading a consortium of local governments and educational entities to offer a noncredit prep program for the CISSP – Certified Information Systems Security Professionals – exam. The program, unique in the area, is supported by a grant from the statewide economic development initiative GO Virginia; King George County; and the Fredericksburg and Stafford County economic development authorities.

The CISSP prep course will begin in winter 2020, and registration is now open. Classes are scheduled to take place at UMW’s Stafford County and Dahlgren campuses.
