Your day at Flatiron School
Our full-time Cybersecurity Analytics program is in session 5 days per week for 12 weeks and follows a block schedule. We employ a unique instructional architecture that maximizes instructor interaction and lab exercises. Our lab times let you engage in hands-on learning on key topics during lecture portions of the class. Most classes will meet twice a week. Each class is a half-day in length with a lunch break between classes. Throughout the Flatiron School programs, you’ll progress through longer “foundational” courses concurrent with shorter, domain-specific topics.
Below is an example of a day at Flatiron School:
Network Administration theory
Network Administration hands-on labs in the Cyber Range
Strategy & Analysis theory
Strategy & Analysis hands-on labs in the Cyber Range
You’ll end the day reviewing concepts and strategising the next steps for your personal projects.
