Yes, the University of Oklahoma Outreach Cyber Bootcamp is beginner-friendly. It’s specifically designed for professionals who have no previous experience in cybersecurity. While some background knowledge is helpful, the only expectation is that students have general computer literacy skills in basics like efficiently using the internet/cloud and Windows.

The bootcamp helps prepare students to take the Security+, CySA exams. Students can expect to spend another ~15 hours studying before taking either exam. The price of taking these exams is not included in tuition.

There's no preparation required to succeed in the course, but we recommend familiarizing yourself with the industry and working through Cybersecurity 101.

Your time with our career success team will include everything from workshops to one-on-one office hours to phone chats before big interviews. And on top of all that, the team will be working behind the scenes to find openings that are right for you and staying up-to-date on the latest recruiting trends to make sure they prepare you for everything.

All students must have their own laptop (or desktop for 100% online classes). We recommend having 16 GB RAM and ~50-100 GB storage. Netbooks, thin clients and tablets are not permitted. Students can use Mac or Windows.

Please note that the Apple M1 processor is only supported for the Coding bootcamp at this time.

For students pursuing the Cyber bootcamp, the Apple M1 processor is not supported.
