Cyber Security Curriculum: Year 4: Ethics & Survey of Programming Languages Goals: Python, Ruby, and Perl Portfolios CEH Certification What can I do with that certification? A+: Low to medium job availability and employment attractiveness ($10.00 per hour starting pay) Network + (with A+): Medium to high job availability and attractiveness. Level 1A Technician and Level 1 Manager ($15.00) Security + (with previous certifications): High to very high job availability and attractiveness ($20 per hour) Linux+ (with previous certifications): High to very high job availability and attractiveness. ($25-30 per hour) CIEH (with previous certifications): Very high demand ($30-40 per hour; $120,00 per year after two years. This equates to $3.6 million over a 30 yr. career.) Consider This: Currently, it is estimated that there are 300,00 positions available for Certified Ethical Computer Hackers. If a person earns $120,oo in their 3rd year of employment, they can expect to make $7.6 million ($7,628,725.43) over 30 years, if they receive a 5% raise each year. If they invest 10% a year in a mutual fund yielding 12% return (the 40 year average), they will have 4.3 million in a retirement account; bringing their 30 year total earnings to nearly $12 million dollars ($12,000,000.”) Not to mention, companies will be paying these salaries to American workers and not outsourcing.
