AT&T Employees: Become Future Ready With A Cybersecurity Badge Created Especially For You!

The AT&T Badge is an internal credential developed specifically for AT&T, through collaboration between AT&T cyber security professionals and the Champlain College Online cybersecurity program experts. This program is available only for employees of AT&T.

Created to meet the cybersecurity needs of AT&T, the Badges contain select courses from our Cybersecurity bachelor's degree and certificate programs; they are rigorous and there will be students in the classes who do not work for AT&T. If you decide to continue on from the badge to the Champlain College Online Cybersecurity certificate or bachelor's degree the courses will transfer seamlessly.

The AT&T Cybersecurity Badge program consists of three badges; the Fundamentals Badge, Advanced Badge. and the Gold Badge. These badges build upon each other, the Gold Badge is granted to those who complete both the Fundamentals and Advanced badges.

Getting Started

No matter what program you are interested in you must apply for admission, including for the AT&T Cybersecurity Badge programs. Because the admission requirements for the various program levels differ, students who wish to continue on from the Badge to a degree or certificate must also complete the application process for their new program of interest.

When applying to the badge program, please apply for the highest badge level you are considering pursuing. We have found that most students who apply for the Fundamentals Badge continue on for the Gold Badge. By applying for the Gold Badge you will not need to do anything after you complete the first two courses, your advisor will contact you about your next course(s) automatically. If you decide not to continue, simply let your advisor know and you will be removed from the Gold Badge.

Badge Prerequisite Requirements

Courses in the Cybersecurity Badge programs require certain prerequisite knowledge and must be demonstrated via review by the Champlain College Online Cybersecurity Program Chair. This includes consideration of prior work history via résumé, related industry certifications, and more. AT&T employees who do not demonstrate mastery of prerequisite course content must complete the additional courses prior to taking the required courses.

Financing The Badge

Students are responsible for payment of their courses; AT&T reimburses managers for badge program tuition following course completion, AT&T employees who are not managers should speak with their supervisor or check the HR OneStop tuition page for information regarding their reimbursement eligibility. Champlain College will bill students, regardless of reimbursement eligibility, before the start of the semester and students have the option to pay in full or in monthly installments. The standard Champlain College refund policy applies to badge programs as well as degree and certificate programs.
