BCR Cyber has developed its Training Pipeline Management program (“TPM”) by working with employers to train and place qualified BCR Cyber students in full-time entry-level IT/Cyber positions. Our programs focus on those new to the industry, often the unemployed or underemployed. BCR Cyber offers students multiple career pathways to employment, including; Internships, Apprenticeships and full-time Journeyman employment. BCR Cyber has developed a consortium of over 35 Strategic Industry Partners (“SIP”). The SIP meets regularly to provide direct input on the training that BCR Cyber develops and keeps BCR Cyber apprised of current industry placement requirements.
Interns generally work for an organization for three to six months, often part-time. Internships are provided hands-on real-world work experience. This allows the intern to experience a career and the employer the opportunity to evaluate the intern. Internships are often unpaid but can lead to follow on employment.
Apprenticeship programs provides the trainee with real-world work experience . Generally, an IT / cyber apprenticeship program is conducted over 12-24 months. An in-house mentor monitors the apprentice and provides guidance. As the apprentice progresses through the program, they complete established milestones and compensation is increased until reaching full journeyman level compensation at the end of the program.
Full Time Employment
Where appropriate, BCR Cyber works with its Strategic Industry Partners (“SIP”) to identify full-time positions for those completing BCR Cyber IT/Cyber training. BCR Cyber has placed over 1,000 individuals in IT / cyber-related positions.
