Missouri Dept of Education
McAfee Institute is now certified to operate with the Missouri Dept of Education as a proprietary school. The central focus of the Proprietary School Certification Program is consumer protection. This is accomplished through the establishment of standards for school operation and monitoring of those operations to ensure students are treated in a fair and equitable manner and receive education and training consistent with the published objectives of the instructional programs and the school.
Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Sponsor
The McAfee Institute is registered with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) as a sponsor of continuing professional education on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors. State boards of accountancy have final authority on the acceptance of individual courses for CPE credit. Complaints regarding registered sponsors may be submitted to the National Registry of CPE Sponsors through its website: www.NASBARegistry.org. NASBA and the National Registry of CPE Sponsors have been approved by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as a qualified accrediting organization for CPE Credits.
The National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE)
The National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) is a nationally coordinated effort including more than 20 federal departments and agencies, academia, and industry. The goals of this initiative are to 1) maintain a globally-competitive cybersecurity workforce; and, 2) broaden the pool of skilled workers able to support a cyber-secure nation. One of the most important aspects of cybersecurity workforce planning is identifying the workforce and numerous workload requirements that impact the nature of the work performed.
The Cybersecurity Workforce Framework provides a systematic way for educators, students, employers, employees, training providers, and policymakers to organize the way they think and talk about cybersecurity work and workforce requirements.
All McAfee Institute Board Certification programs have been mapped to the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) framework and recognized by the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Career& Studies (NICCS) by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
