    The full time Bootcamp - exclusive of the Prework - is comprised of 480 hours of best in class content, delivered 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, over 3 months. Keep in mind, we all learn at different speeds and you may find some topics require more or less time. As such, the platform will be available to you 24/7.
    At the beginning of each day, you will receive daily learning objectives from your facilitator. During the day, you will learn at your own pace on the Cybint Platform. At the end of the day, you will regroup with your cohort and facilitator for another session to consolidate the day’s learning.
    The instructor is the platform, which was developed by Cybint’s cybersecurity experts. Through the platform, you will access content as well as practice labs and scenarios. In addition, every cohort will be assigned a facilitator, who will be supporting your learning experience and ensuring no one is left behind. You will also have access to a human instructor who will lead lessons and respond to questions.
    In order for you to practice the skills you learn, the Bootcamp includes over 100 unique hands- on exercises that run in virtual machines. These are safe environments where you will be able to run different operating systems, access various tools without installing them on your computer, and practice confidently without putting your computer at risk.
    In the remote version of the Bootcamp, you will get together with your classmates and facilitator over video conference twice a day, once in the morning and once at the end of the day. During the day, you will be able to communicate with classmates and facilitators via messaging platform.
    Everything is browser-based so there is no need to install any app or software. We recommend using Chrome internet browser for best experience.
    In order to participate effectively in the Bootcamp, you will need a laptop able to run video conferencing. This includes an up-to- date operating system, a stable high-speed internet connection, and a working camera and microphone. For a more detailed list please refer to the Zoom System Requirements. In addition, a second screen is recommended for optimal experience.
