WINNIPEG — Students at Sisler High School will soon learn cyber security as part of their curriculum.

Through the school’s Virtual Network and Cyber Security Centre, the courses will prepare students for in-demand careers in entry-level information technology, networking, cyber security and virtualization.

“This is a world-class program that equips Manitoba students with skills that are highly valued by the IT industry,” Premier Greg Selinger said. “We are investing in making it available to even more students so they can get the jobs of tomorrow right here at home.”

Students will also have access to dual credits through partnerships with Red River College and the University of Winnipeg for advanced placement and post-secondary credits.

There are currently 200 students registered in the program for 2015-16 school year.
