Cyber Security

Why PCC?

Pueblo Community college provides a dedicated lab for all security and forensic classes in the cybersecurity program. It is separate from the school network, allowing us to run programs that would not be allowed on a system network. 

Our CIS faculty includes a certified Cyber Security Education Consortium instructor and all instructors are trained in material that aligns with the National Training Standards approved by the Committee on National Security Systems for NSTISSI 4011, CNSSI 4012, CNSSI 4013E and CNSSI 4014E.

In addition to an Associate of Applied Science degree in Networking Cybersecurity, PCC offers the following certificates:

  • Cyber Defense (28 credits)
  • Forensic Computing (23)
  • Information Assurance Basic (19)
  • Networking Mini (13)
  • Security Mini (15)
CAE: Centers of Academic Excellence in Cybersecurity - Community

The National Security Agency and Department of Homeland Security designated PCC a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education in 2017. This designation ensures that you are getting the best instruction available and offers your future employers the assurance that you are well qualified in the rapidly growing CIS industry.
