TU, Academy of Computer Education partner to offer IT courses
Courses will address IT and cyber security workforce training needs
TOWSON, Md. – TU’s Extended Education and Online Learning (EEOL) unit and the Academy of Computer Education (ACE) are partnering to offer information technology training courses at Towson University starting mid-January. EEOL is a component of Towson University’s Division of Economic and Community Outreach.
This partnership will allow EEOL and ACE to address IT and cyber security workforce training needs to a larger community, including the government and defense contract communities of the Baltimore–Washington, D.C., metropolitan area.
ACE and TU will offer a Certified Network Defense Architect (CNDA) training course (http://www.trainace.com/courses/cnda.asp) and a Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator (CHFI) training course. These courses, which involve in-depth network intrusion detection and prevention concepts, are in very high demand in the cyber-security arena. This strategic alliance between TU and ACE will provide opportunities to coordinate and offer non-credit programs, such as Microsoft’s .NET and Sequel Server, at ACE’s Prince George’s County location, with the potential of offering additional IT programs.
The Academy of Computer Education (http://www.trainace.com) is a private career school nationally accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges of Technology and is approved by the Maryland Higher Education Commission. ACE’s current training focus is completely IT-related, with concentrations including CompTIA, Microsoft, Cisco and Security.

Additionally, EEOL—in partnership with TU’s Division of Academic Affairs—can provide credit-based programs, such as a Masters in AIT, to local companies. Visit http://www.towson.edu/outreach/ for more information on EEOL and the Division of Economic and Community Outreach.
