A new model for education and employment

You don’t have to choose between going back to school and getting a job. Welcome to the next generation of distance learning.

In the Purdue Cyber Apprenticeship Program (P-CAP), you work for an employer that pays for your education while you gain paid industry experience and training. When you complete the program, you will have earned either an associate degree in IT or a Bachelor of Science degree in cybersecurity, and you will have opportunities to sit for various industry recognized certifications, earn other specialty certificates, and get a Purdue Leadership Academy certificate—all without student debt and while you’ve been earning a paycheck.

How it works:

P-CAP is a paradigm shift in education, addressing the needs of employers and adult learners. Currently there are three ways to access education and training – through a university (or community college), online, or an apprenticeship. The P-CAP program blends these three models together, creating a new way to earn-and-learn for the 21st century.
