Tech high school in Washington DC provides cyber security certifications, making teens job ready
The McKinley Technology Education Campus of the Washington DC Public School system is offering a curriculum in cybersecurity, leading to industry certification, as part of high school. Melanie Wiscount is reported as the primary instructor. The link is here. And several area defense contractors say that employees who earn certification at the school are all ready for employment, which they could hold while attending college.
The school is located in NE Washington DC. I’ll get a specific campus picture soon. It is near the Rhode Island Ave. Metro on the Red Line and slightly east of North Capitol Street. I'll have to see if the Arlington Career Center, where I used to sub, does the same thing.
