The core Cyber Defense program at Leeward CC is in the Information and Computer Science program (ICS). Embedded in this program is a Certificate of Achievement (CA) in Information Security and Certificate of Competence (CO) in Information Security. Both the CA and CO in Cyber Security are built on the knowledge unit requirements for a collegiate institution to be recognized as a CAE-CD. The program also features support for the following industry recognized certifications: A+, Network+, Security+, PenTest+, and Linux+.
In addition, our ICS program has an articulation agreement with the University of Hawai‘i at West O‘ahu (UHWO). Once Leeward CC ICS students receive their AS in ICS they can transfer to UHWO and complete the Bachelors of Applied Science in both IT and Information Security Assurance.
The ICS Program also has an articulation agreement with the UH Maui ABIT program.
