Starting Training

Q: I'm interested. I'd like IT training or want to start a career in IT and/or Cybersecurity. What do I do?

A: Please get in touch.

Q: I'm interested, but I'm not sure if this is right for me. What do I do?

A: Please get in touch. Students are only accepted if the program or course is a good fit. There is no pressure whatsoever.

Information Technology (IT) vs. Cybersecurity

Q: What's the difference between IT and Cybersecurity? Are they the same thing?

A: Cybersecurity can be thought of as the part of IT that deals with protecting data and information. A career in IT can mean you are working with computers, networks, servers, databases, applications, and more. A career in cybersecurity can mean that you are protecting those things. They are very much related and overlap.

Although an effort is made to make a distinction on this website, if you only see the term "IT", that is referring to both IT and cybersecurity.

For IT Beginners

Q: I'm new. I want to start a career in IT. What do I do?

A: The IT Beginner to Job Program is designed for you. It provides all of the guidance and training needed to get a job in IT. Just get in touch and you'll be on your way.

Q: I'm a complete beginner and have no background in IT. Can I really get a job in IT?

A: Yes. Students who successfully complete the IT Beginner to Job Program are qualified for a job in IT and almost every student will get one. Feel free to read actual student testimonials.

Q: If almost every student will get a job in IT, will I be the one who doesn't?

A: Some students who are qualified may not get a job in IT because they have an issue preventing them from getting just about any professional job or for some reason they are not looking for a job in IT. If you have concerns you can bring them up before starting training. Students who want to work in IT will almost always get that opportunity if they successfully complete the program.

Q: How long will it take to get an IT job?

A: Students usually start working in IT in about 8 months from the time they start training if that is their goal. Some students will take longer so they can complete more training and take more classes. Some students want to start working quickly and will get an IT job around 5-6 months after beginning training.

Q: Will I be stuck at an entry level job forever?

A: The IT Beginner to Job Program provides all of the training needed to get you your first IT job. It also provides you with the training needed for a promotion. Students who get their first entry level job are immediately qualified for a promotion or a better job because of their training and most will advance to a better job within 6-18 months.

Q: How is it possible that Eddie Teaches IT takes less than one year when college takes 4 years?

A: With college, about 3 years are lost because of general education classes and long breaks between classes. More than half of college classes are general education classes unrelated to your major. That adds up to about 2 years. College also has long breaks between classes. 3 month summer breaks and 1 month winter breaks add up to another year lost.

A: Yes. If you feel stuck at your job or if you are not happy, you can learn something new or pursue a certification that will help you get the job and the pay that you want. Not sure what to take? Just get in touch. That can be figured out during a future meeting.

A: No. There is no rush, although there is some urgency since most students want to get through training and get a better job. The pace of training is a mix between fast enough where a lot is being learned every week, yet slow enough where students retain the knowledge. This can be considered a replacement for college. Instead of 4 years, training is cut down to a few months. Cutting down to one week or two weeks is usually too much. Also, students are never slowed down. They can get through training more quickly if they choose.

Certification Training
