New IT learning and job opportunity in Baton Rouge
Become a Cybersecurity Analyst in just 15 months, at no cost to you. You will get paid while you train through this new apprenticeship opportunity sponsored by NexusLA and Apprenti.
Cybersecurity Analysts are in high demand in our area and companies such as Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana, EATEL, TraceSecurity, and General Informatics have already agreed to hire apprentices through this program (Apprenti). Apprenti is a new registered apprenticeship program to offer you a path and plan into the tech industry.
How it works
- Take the online assessment (https://apprenticareers.org/locations/louisiana/) and rank high enough to be invited to interview with staff. (If you want to be part of the first cohort you need to take the assessment before the end of October.)
- If you are selected, you’ll be placed into 3 months of full-time technical training (this period is unpaid!)
- Once you complete training, you will transition to paid on-the-job-training with companies such as Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana, EATEL, TraceSecurity, and General Informatics, for one year
- After graduating from your apprenticeship, you will have the opportunity and experience to qualify to be retained by your hiring company
You need to be over 18 with a high school diploma or equivalent and eligible to work in the U.S. (you do not need to be a U.S. citizen). Take the test at https://apprenticareers.org/locations/louisiana/ and see if you make it to the next round. If you don’t succeed the first time around, you can retake the test 3 more times.
