Transfer: Both the ITTP and the IT Model Curriculum for Transfer, on which it is based, are transferrable towards a Bachelor’s degree at National University and Western Governors University.
K-12 Funnel: The ITTP also aligns with efforts to increase cybersecurity education at the K-12 level through CyberPatriot and other cyber competitions. These events bring students from all walks of life together to learn how to keep networks safe against cyber threats.
