Why Level Effect?

Glad you asked.


We have world-class instructors.

Our four instructors (who also built our courses) have nearly 40 years of combined, diversified cybersecurity experience. Some of their past roles include NSA cyber operators, cyber specialists at the Department of Defense (US Intelligence), and various roles in the private industry.

They’re here because they share a passion: to make cyberspace a safer place by educating the next generation of cybersecurity experts.

We have one of the best cybersecurity bootcamps in the world.

While there’s no shortage of cybersecurity bootcamps out there, few cut out the fluff and focus on what matters. We do.

Our bootcamp is hands-on, practical, and immersive. Instead of stringing together a bootcamp experience that covers more theory than practice, we offer a unique and impactful experience that empowers students to use the cyber skills they’re learning in real-world scenarios.

Plus–and not to brag–but our alumni consistently rate our bootcamp five stars across the board. And Course Report, a global authority for online education, ranked us as one of the best cybersecurity bootcamps in the world. It’s not bragging if it’s the truth, right?
