Fullerton College is a National Center of Academic Excellence for Cyber Defense
The Department of Homeland Security and the National Security Agency have designated Fullerton College’s Cybersecurity program as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense (CAE-CD).


Digital devices can be found in every kind of environment such as school, work, and home.  Those devices were once separate but are now connected using networks.  The Computer Information Systems Department has two networking certificates, the Networking Skills Certificate and the Networking Certificate.

The Networking Skills Certificate prepares the student for a career using computer networks in business. This includes skills in installing and managing Windows networks.  Please note that this certificate was approved by the NOCCCD Board of Trustees but not approved by State Chancellor’s Office. This certificate is not eligible for Financial Aid.

The Networking Certificate is designed to prepare students for a career using computer networks in business. Students receive hands-on instruction on how to operate, install, configure, troubleshoot, upgrade, and maintain computer networks as well as basic network security.
