AT&T Cybersecurity Badge Opportunties

Meeting AT&T's Cybersecurity Needs

The following Badge opportunities are approved by AT&T for managers to receive tuition reimbursement; employees who are not managers should speak directly with your supervisor and/or refer to the appropriate HR OneStop tuition page to determine your reimbursement eligibility and process.

About Cybersecurity Badges

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 for AT&T employees.

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 BadgeAdvanced 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.
