Biocertification launches biometric certification training and scholarships for students and recent grads

September 10, 2013 - 

Biocertification has announced a new program focused on working in the information technology security field for candidates looking to specialize in biometrics.

The program, “Certified Biometrics Security Professional Program for College Seniors and Graduates,” provides free access to biometrics and CompTIA Security+ training for qualified students and recent graduates. According to Biocertification.com, it is the very first vendor neutral biometric certification training provider in the world.

Biocertification says it’s currently selecting universities and colleges that offer computer science, MIS and IT security programs to participate and implement the training resources. Training scholarships are available to qualified college seniors and recent graduates as well as to U.S. veterans on a first-come-first-served basis. Application takes place online.      

The group’s “Certified Biometrics Security Engineer” program offers free training through its on-demand and blended training to qualified candidates. Specifically, these candidates will receive 4 weeks for the on-demand training package, exam prep tools and electronic course-ware. Biocertification also says students can also attend virtual live exam prep sessions, but will be responsible for their own certification exam fees for both Biocertification and CompTIA.

Biocertification has scheduled a 3-day bootcamp taking place December 9, 2013 in Las Vegas for a number of its certification and training programs. Learn more about that event here.
