LifeJourney, Cyber Innovation Center Partner on Cyber-Infused Teacher PD

LifeJourney and The Cyber Innovation Center have partnered to release The Cyber Teacher, a cloud-based professional development and certification program designed to include cybersecurity material and IT skills in high school teacher training.

Features of the program include cyber-related lesson plans and resources, career guidance tools, "career awareness" mentorship modules, the opportunity to earn a cyber teacher certificate and a CompTIA CertMaster adaptive e-learning course.

"Equipping our nation's teachers with skills and tools they can employ to make their students more cyber-aware will fill a critical need for greater cybersecurity awareness," said Thomas Reilly, vice president of CompTIA Learning, in a prepared statement.
