Popular Programs at AT&T:


The AT&T Badge is an internal credential developed specifically for AT&T, through collaboration between AT&T security professionals and the Champlain College Online cybersecurity program experts. This program is available only to AT&T employees and is not an official Champlain College Online program.

Created to meet the cybersecurity needs of AT&T, the Badges are available only to AT&T employees but contain select courses from our Cybersecurity bachelor's degree and certificate program courses; 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.

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.

AT&T Cybersecurity Fundamentals Badge

AT&T employees will earn the AT&T Cybersecurity Fundamentals badge after successfully completing two courses: (CYBR 210 Foundations of Cybersecurity and CYBR 240 Networking & Security).

Pre-requisites include: CMIT-130, CMIT-135, and NETW-215 

AT&T Cybersecurity Advanced Badge

AT&T employees will earn the AT&T Cybersecurity Advanced badge after successfully completing four courses: (CYBR 310 Mobile Security,  CYBR 335 Ethical Hacking,  CYBR 410 Emerging Threats and Defenses, and  CYBR 420 Policy Analysis & Implementation).

Pre-requisites include:  CYBR 210

NOTE: Because CYBR 210 is a required prerequisite, students applying for the Advanced Badge should know they are only one course away (CYBR 240) from earning the Gold Badge, and may want to apply for that program instead.

AT&T Cybersecurity Gold Badge

AT&T employees will earn the AT&T Cybersecurity Gold Badge (certificate of course completion) after successful completion of all six courses included in the Fundamentals Badge and the Advanced Badge.  This Gold Badge (certificate of course completion) signifies completion of the requirements for both Badges, and will be awarded in addition to the other two Badges.

AT&T has selected three additional programs to promote to its employees as "Future Ready" programs: the undergraduate certificate in cybersecurity, the bachelor's degree in cybersecurity, and the bachelor's degree in computer information systems. While the courses from the badge program roll directly into the cybersecurity programs, all our undergraduate degree and certificate programs benefit from a generous transfer credit policy which shortens your time to completion.

Cybersecurity Undergraduate Certificate

Upon completion of the AT&T Cybersecurity Gold Badge you are only 2 courses away from earning your undergraduate certificate in cybersecurity from Champlain. The undergraduate certificate is a concentrated, carefully selected grouping of courses focused on specific cybersecurity skills. Certificates are regarded by employers and other colleges and universities as academic-level credentials. All AT&T employees are eligible to pursue the certificate with the benefit of the truED tuition savings; please visit your appropriate tuition page on HR OneStop for information on your tuition reimbursement benefits.

Bachelor's Degree in Cybersecurity

Upon completion of the Gold Badge, AT&T employees have the opportunity to earn their bachelor's degree in cybersecurity from Champlain College Online. Not only do you start with 18 credits under your belt from the badge, but Champlain will also review all your transcripts from prior college experience, professional certifications or trainings, military trainings, and more, to look for up to 90 additional credits you can transfer in toward your bachelor's degree in order to get you to completion faster! 

Note: All AT&T employees are eligible to pursue this degree with the benefit of the truED tuition savings; please visit your appropriate tuition page on HR OneStop for information on your tuition reimbursement benefits.

Bachelor's Degree In Computer Information Systems

This bachelor’s degree is for individuals interested in a career in IT and who want broader IT knowledge and skills. This program is available to AT&T employees at a preferred tuition rate at Champlain College Online. While there is no tSpace Badge pathway into this degree, Champlain offers a generous transfer credit policy that can not only help decrease the cost of the degree but also decrease your time to completion.

AT&T employees are eligible for preferred tuition through the truED Alliance. 

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. Speak to your supervisor or check HR OneStop for details. Or, see the Badge FAQs for more information.
