IT Fundamentals Voucher Program
A collaboration of synED, CompTIA, Practice Labs and ITProTV brings an exceptional opportunity to community college and high school students to get their first industry recognized certification. This, coupled with cyber competition experience, gives students a head start on a career in IT and Cybersecurity.
CERTIFICATION CONCIERGE SERVICE
SynED’s concierge service is designed to augment your student success efforts. Many students fail to take industry certification exams after participating in exam preparation and training programs. We become a coach and cheerleader to help students find the confidence to take and pass their exams.
Team Competition learning
SynED’s experience in developing and hosting team competitions has given us the insight that students learn subject material faster, better and in a proficiency context. They are also immersed in an environment that cultivates key human traits that will serve them throughout their lives.
Digital Credential Design
The narrative of each student’s educational journey is a story that must be told, and digital credentials/badges can be instrumental in helping to tell that story.
Digital Credentials/Badges can represent the many credentials offered by your institution. Your program should be designed with your key objectives in mind while recognizing the needs of your students, faculty, employers and community.
picoCTF is a free computer security game targeted at middle and high school students. The game consists of a series of challenges centered around a unique storyline where participants must reverse engineer, break, hack, decrypt, or do whatever it takes to solve the challenge. The challenges are all set up with the intent of being hacked, making it an excellent, legal way to get hands-on experience.
