Whether it’s the post-pandemic landscape requiring you go digital for CPE/CEU or you just want to learn more about cybersecurity, I’ve got you covered. Here are the courses I’ve gathered along with whether CPE certificates are available (and if so, the cost) and whether Open Badges are integrated.

Here’s a current listing of all free cybersecurity training over the web I’ve identified and whether they offer certificates for completion. If you have any you’d like to add, let me know! I’ll give you a shout-out.
