Why should I take courses on information technology and cyber security?
Much of our nation depends on infrastructure that is controlled by computers and many of our daily activities are affected by computers. Computer security is not an individual concern. Our networks depend on the flow of information and on the integrity of the information we get from others. Addressing information assurance within a community helps ensure continued operations and minimal impact from cyber attacks.
How do I register for a course?
Register using this website. Navigate to the course or track listing of your choice and look for a registration link near the bottom of the page. On most courses, you will have the ability to see multiple course offerings by date. As the course draws near, you will receive an email containing logistical, parking, and driving directions.
How do I request a course for my community through FEMA (TEI/TO)? How much will it cost?
TEI/TO training partners provide training at low or no cost to the individual or the individual's agency. Please contact CIAS directly by calling 210.458.2185 or email Training@CIAStraining.com for more information.
Do you have group or military discounts?
Yes, we do! Please select the military discount as a fee option during your registration process.
How do I find logistic information on my course?
Each registered participant will receive an email containing the logistics of each class. Also, a link from our webpage will also provide you with all necessary information regarding that class (e.g., dates, location of facility, directions, parking instructions, dress code, etc.)
What if I have to cancel?
Please notify us as soon as possible if you need to cancel a class. You must cancel by contacting us in writing to withdraw from the course. Upon receiving your withdrawal, we will refund your tuition, minus a $10 processing fee. Failure to attend the course without prior notification will be considered a no show and will result in forfeiture of the full tuition of the class.
If the CIAS is forced to cancel any class for any reason, refunds for the class will either be granted at 100% of the tuition or applied to a future class offering.
Will any of these IT Security Professional courses apply to a degree program?
Do I have to be a student of the University to enroll in a class?
No. CIAS classes are non-academic courses and are open to the public, including UTSA students, current professionals, etc.
