Statewide Cybersecurity Training Request Form

Funding from the Employment Advancement Right Now (EARN) Maryland program, a grant program administered by the Maryland Department of Labor, will be utilized to deliver cutting-edge cybersecurity training to State employees. In partnership with the Maryland Department of Labor and Maryland Department of Information Technology (DoIT), EARN grantee Baltimore Cyber Range LLC (Baltimore Cyber) will provide training to State employees.​

Training requests are only for State Employees at this time, with a minimum satisfactory PEP rating, and whose IT role has direct or indirect responsibility for maintaining cybersecurity within their departments. All training sessions will be conducted virtually.  All testing will be conducted in person. Training and testing is free for individuals selected to participate.

Training will be approximately four (4) weeks in length with four (4) hours per day and is anticipated to start in mid December 2022 for the first session and late January 2023 for the second session. 

The Advanced Incumbent Training session will train, test, and certify state employees who have more than five (5) years of IT experience for the Certified Information Security Systems Professional Certification (“CISSP"), an advanced International Information System Security Certification Consortium (“(ISC)²") certificate which is required for efforts involving the design and implementation of most government IT systems architectures. Training will be approximately five (5) weeks in length with two (2) hours per day and is anticipated to start in mid December 2022​ for the first session and late January 2023 for the second session.

 If chosen to participate in this training opportunity:
