    Experienced Faculty
    Our CIS faculty include a Certified CSEC Instructor and are also trained in material that maps to the National Training Standards approved by the Committee on National Security Systems for NSTISSI 4011, CNSSI 4012, CNSSI 4013E, and CNSSI 4014E.

    Our Cutting Edge Facilities
    Pueblo Community college provides a dedicated lab for cyber security classes. This lab is GC121 and is located in the Gorsich Advanced Technology Center. The lab is used for all security classes and forensic classes. It is separate from the school network, which allows programs to run that would not be allowed on a system network. The lab can also be shared with Kids' College for robotics programming. Once a year, the lab is used to train firefighters on wild land fire and techniques.
