Cyber Security Fundamentals Course Professional Development

URI Provides Professional Development that prepares a certified teacher to deliver the Cyber Security Fundamentals course.

  • The PD makes no assumptions about the background of the teacher, except that they are willing to learn.
  • The PD includes all curricular materials necessary to teach the course.
  • The PD requires that teachers enroll in URI's CSC592 course for 4 Grad credits (Summer 2020 in-state Grad credit rate is $317/credit - approximately $1,268 total plus fees).
    • Registration for the CSC592 summer course in URI's ECampus will be available in the Spring.
    • If you do not have an ecampus username, follow the How to Register (for new students) instructions.
    • If you already have an ecampus username then you should be able to login to ecampus and enroll in the course.

RI educators successfully completing this PD will become eligible to offer this course for concurrent enrollment. See the Concurrent Enrollment Program for details on student requirements.

You must register for both the CSC592 class AND the PD training.
