Chippewa Valley Technical College has been named in a report as part of a White House strategy to increase the cyber workforce.

The White House’s National Cyber Workforce and Education Strategy Initial Stages of Implementation, released Tuesday, “charts a course for fostering White House-level coordination to meet cyber workforce demand,” according to the report.

It aims to identify and further create options for education where workers have access to jobs in cybersecurity within their communities. The report details the demand for cyber workers, workforce development and education. To meet the challenges of local, national and global cyber threats, the report aims to shine a light on cyber careers and to encourage the development of education in cybersecurity.

CVTC is named in the report as one of only six colleges in Wisconsin that has the designation of National Centers of Academic Excellence in Cybersecurity. The College received its designation in 2022. 

Josh Huhmann, IT-Network Specialist instructor with CVTC, said students in the IT-Network Specialist program learn about cybersecurity and how to identify vulnerabilities and secure an IT environment. Being recognized in a White House report is a feather in the cap of CVTC and the work it’s putting into the important field of cybersecurity.

In addition to the designation, in 2021, CVTC was approved to offer an Advanced Technical Certificate in cybersecurity to upskill those already working in the field.
