Build Real-World, Technical Cybersecurity Skills with a Full Year of Continuous, Hands-On Learning at a Tremendous Savings.

In Cybersecurity, There’s No Substitute for Real-World Experience.

That’s why we created the Cybersecurity Nexus (CSX) Virtual Cyber Academy – a comprehensive, real-world training solution designed to help you build real technical skills by learning to combat real threats in a live, dynamic network environment. Train whenever and wherever you want, with 24/7 access and a cloud-based learning platform.


Cyberthreats Evolve Quickly – And So Does CSX Training.

We’ll help you stay on top of current threats, and the latest tools and techniques to handle them, with unlimited access to our extensive library of practice labs and instructional, 16-hour courses. With continuous updates and the addition of new labs and courses throughout the year, you’ll not only have access to our existing catalog, but you'll have access to new courses and labs added within your subscription period. That equates to well over US $5,000 worth of training during the course of your 12-month subscription period - for as low as US $3,495.

Train for an Entire Year for Less Than the Cost Of a Typical Single, Week-Long Course.

A single, traditional 5-day training course from other leading training providers can cost as much as US $6,000, plus travel. The CSX Virtual Cyber Academy Self-Paced Training Subscription offers a full-year of unlimited, comprehensive training for much less.




Each Training Option Will Help You Build the Deep Technical Skills Required to Perform Successfully in Key Cybersecurity Positions:

Our growing library is continually updated to keep you relevant, and new volumes of labs are added quarterly. You’ll have access to all currently-available practice labs, as well as all new labs added during your subscription period. Labs range from beginner to advanced levels.
