"At our school we started a Cyber Security Track for students to take. When looking for curriculum to offer students that not only helped cover what the state says they need to learn, we also looked for something that would help students get ready for a career. Using TestOut curriculum and having it aligned to Industry Standard Certifications allows us to offer a great curriculum for students as well as get them prepared to take certification tests. CyberDefense Pro is very good at helping students prepare for their certification tests and is well-aligned to help them prepare. Students enjoy the content and being able to work through it at their own pace."
