Develop Secure Software Talent through the CICESS
Offer apprenticeships to ICC’s Secure Software Program students and close your talent & security gaps.
The Central Illinois Center for Excellence in Secure Software (CICESS) is an apprenticeship program that was developed by local employers in partnership with Illinois Central College. This program is designed to decrease the skills gap associated with secure software development professionals in our region.
How does the program work?
The apprenticeship program combines on-the-job training and related classroom instruction under the supervision of a trade professional, helping an individual learn the practical and theoretical aspects of a highly skilled occupation.
