Advanced Technical Intelligence Center partnering with the Auburn Research and Technology Foundation

AUBURN UNIVERSITY – The Auburn Research and Technology Foundation is partnering with the Advanced Technical Intelligence Center for Human Capital Development, ATIC, to offer a Cyber Analyst Training Program.

The eight-week training program combines training in critical thinking, briefing and writing skills with National Security Agency-approved Information Assurance courses.

Scheduled to begin Oct. 15, the program will be offered at Auburn University Regional Airport and is available to interested individuals throughout the region. Prior experience in cyber systems is not required.

“We are pleased to partner with ATIC as well as with faculty from the Auburn University Cyber Initiative to offer critical and timely training designed to prepare students for careers in cyber security analytics,” said John Weete, executive director of the Auburn Research and Technology Foundation. “ATIC has a long and successful history of addressing human capital and technological development needs within the U.S. Intelligence Community and related industries. To meet those needs, they partner with industry, government and academia to leverage their combined knowledge and technical capabilities.”

Through ATIC’s agreements with government customers, students enrolled in the program will be sponsored for a U.S. security clearance. As a result, students not only receive relevant education and training but those students who are granted a clearance by the government are more marketable and better prepared to quickly enter the Intelligence Community and Department of Defense-related workforce.

“ATIC’s mission is to train the intelligence workforce of the future and the partnership with the Auburn Research and Technology Foundation┬áprovides an opportunity to deliver essential skills to a growing cyber workforce,” said Chris Quillen, ATIC’s senior vice president and director of education and training.

Established in 2004, the Auburn Research and Technology Foundation is a university-affiliated, non-profit 501(c)3 corporation formed to support the mission of Auburn University, particularly in the areas of research and economic development.

Located in Beavercreek, Ohio, the Advanced Technical Intelligence Center for Human Capital Development is an independent, not-for-profit corporation established in 2006 to help fill critical human capital and technological shortfalls within the U.S. Intelligence Community and related industries.
