Apprenticeships Are changing cybersecurity

Paid apprenticeships are the biggest change in cybersecurity hiring, filling open positions in the 3.5M hiring gap.

We offer an end-to-end apprenticeship program paired with our powerful SaaS platform to help you scale hiring, fill your pipeline, and reduce risks.

Benefits

High Aptitude cohorts of all sizes

Use advanced aptitude analytics to provide the best candidates and streamline their training to your job readiness needs.

Built with Employers

We work directly with employers from different industries to build dynamic programs that fit your needs.

Diversity

Aptitude measurement reveals great candidates independent from prior experience, race, or gender. Free training and paid apprenticeships remove income gaps and reward ambition. Companies benefit from better teams and greater perspective.

Reskilling & Direct Hiring

The resources available for screening and managing apprentices can be used to identify employees that may be good candidates for reskilling into cybersecurity. For apprentices not hired by their sponsoring company, we offer direct hiring of those graduates.

Beyond written certifications

Traditional hiring and evaluation is often based on written certifications and interviews. RapidAscent aptitude testing and training provides real and verified task-driven results that both help to select highly qualified candidates and verify job ready skills.

Hiring With Reduced Cost and Risk

Traditional Hiring is time consuming, and costly with high churn.
Our innovative model allows you to save with more effective hiring and higher retention.
