    More About Merit Cybersecurity Courses
    The Michigan Cyber Range features a cybersecurity education experience based upon the National Institute of Standards and Technology National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE). The NICE framework organizes and presents the skills and work requirements that America’s cybersecurity workforce requires to support the National Preparedness Goals of detecting, mitigating, and defeating malicious actors and cyber-based threats. The framework engages all levels of the workforce, presenting essential concepts, techniques, and practices based on an individual’s function within the organization.

    The Michigan Cyber Range (MCR) heavily leverages Merit’s network to conduct classes that provide 17 CNSS accredited certificates on various aspects of cyber security. In addition to classes, the Range hosts a variety of exercises that train information technology or cyber security professionals. Finally, the MCR leases virtual infrastructure to organizations for their own classes, exercises, and testing. Many of these offerings make use of Alphaville, MCR’s virtual training environment.

    The Michigan Cyber Range addresses the shortage of relevant and accessible NSA/CNSS accredited training through maintaining innovative and strategic partnerships. Helping organizations navigate and comply with the changing federal legislation landscape is at the core of our curriculum selection. Notable cybersecurity training partnerships include, but are not limited to: ISC2, CompTIA, ISACA, EC-Council, Cyber World Institute and the Cloud Security Alliance.
    Our curriculum has you covered from end users all the way up to the cloud in every industry with easy-to-navigate road maps that help you select the right focus based on current and growing threats. Check back with us frequently as our course additions keep pace with the rapidly changing threat landscape.
