ATLANTA (November 14, 2017) | Sen. Bruce Thompson (R–White) hosted the second meeting of the Senate Study Committee on Cyber Security Education on Thursday, November 9, at Chattahoochee Technical College’s North Metro Campus in Acworth.
“The development of cybertechnology is evident in every field,” said Sen. Thompson. “This study committee has helped reinforce my drive to educate future generations on the benefits of learning and understanding their abilities in the industry. I am confident that this study committee will encourage students to seek out learning opportunities, alongside some of the most qualified instructors at places like Chattahoochee Tech. I look forward to outlining our next steps as we wrap up with our final meeting this Friday.”
Members of the study committee were able to hear about Chattahoochee Tech’s Computer Information Systems Technology Program, which allows students to receive a degree and diploma in Cybersecurity. The hands-on courses offered through this program are also offered to Georgia high school students participating in Georgia’s Dual Enrollment Program. Sen. Thompson and members of the Senate Study Committee on Cyber Security Education hope to see programs similar to these offered more widely across the state of Georgia.
