About the Carolina Cyber Center

A core of empowerment

Our passion is to empower our student’s learning journey. Founded by Montreat College, Carolina Cyber Center (C3) has access to some of the best, brightest, and most apt minds working to forge the next-generation workforce, the best cyber education in the region.

Hardened by experience

Our cybersecurity leaders, analysts, and instructors average over 25 years of hands-on industry IT and cybersecurity experience at Fortune 500 companies, international NGOs, regional non-profits, and government entities. Thus, your instructors bring the discipline, passion, and expertise to support your learning journey practically and efficiently.

Character is essential

Our industry partners tell us, “We need people of discipline, integrity, ethics, and character!” and we listened. Because we want to give you more than the baseline resume filler of certifications and technical training (which we do), we also focus on the professional and essential life skills that employers demand and that support a long, prosperous career in the industry. With C3, you will be more than job-ready; you become career-ready.
