The Cyber Security Training Center (CSTC) located in Ft McCoy, WI provides high quality Information Assurance and Computer Network Defense training for Department of Defense (DoD) personnel.

Formerly a part of the Army Reserve Readiness Training Center, Ft McCoy, our location was the first mirror site established by the IA SIGCEN - Ft Gordon, GA. The first classroom and lab for the Systems Administrator / Network Manager Security Course was officially dedicated on February 5th, 2000. Currently we offer A+, Network+, Security+, CASP, CISSP, Network Manager's Security (NMSC) and Computer Network Defense (CNDC) training. Certified Ethical Hacking (C|EH) curriculum is integrated into the CNDC.

We offer 8570.1 compliance training and certification testing to various members of the DoD including Active Duty Military (all branches), Reservists, National Guard Members, Government Civilians and Contractors. For more information see our current course listing.
