    New NCC corporate member, Practice Labs, is offering NCC members access to its entire portfolio so they can select a hands-on lab environment and ‘get their hands dirty’. The labs are aligned with Cisco, CompTIA, ISC2, Microsoft, Oracle and VMware certification and give learners an opportunity to test their hands-on skills using actual hardware. Practice Labs CEO, Ricky Doyle, said: “We all learn from doing, but not every HE institution has the time or resources to build a safe lab environment to facilitate this, so we’ve done it for them. Simulations are limited in scope so our practice labs feature real hardware to prepare learners for the sort of situations they will come across in the workplace. This real-life work experience helps learners build their skills and increases their confidence, whether that’s for their day-to-day job or to help prepare them for certification.”

    NCC members will have free access to a practice lab of their choice until the end of February 2019. To take advantage of this exclusive offer click here.

    Community College Faculty - - You know who your “shining stars” are in your computer science or cybersecurity programs!  Take this opportunity to let your best students know about applying for a CyberCorps Scholarship for Service at The George Washington University. This scholarship works best for transfer students who are in Computer Science, but other related majors are not out of the question. Professor Shelly Heller (sheller@gwu.edu) is happy to chat with you or your students about the opportunity described below.

    GW CyberCorps: Scholarships for Service is now accepting applications for September 2019. If you are interested in pursuing a technical and/or policy degree in the field of cybersecurity, consider applying for a scholarship grant. Government funding provides full scholarships (tuition, books, stipend, and professional development allowance) for students to study cybersecurity at GW for up to three years. After completing their coursework, students will help protect the nation's information infrastructure by working as security experts in a government agency for at least the amount of time they have been supported by this program. Rising juniors, seniors, and graduate students who are U.S. citizens and have a GPA above 3.0 are eligible to apply. The application deadline is January 31, 2019. Visit GW CyberCorps for application and program information.
