About CCAP

Coastline College is seeking interested candidates that would like to learn about cybersecurity while working in an apprenticeship role. Prospective applicants must be A+ certified, over the age of 17, and legally eligible to work in the US. The first cohort track in the Coastline Cybersecurity Apprenticeship Program began in June 2017 with online classes in cybersecurity. 

We encourage employer partners in Southern California and cybersecurity mentors to support the program. Employer partners can look forward to providing a work environment for apprentices that are interested in cybersecurity and ongoing learning. Mentors can support the program by providing training in cybersecurity, networking, and soft skills to encourage the apprentices to learn technical skills and be prepared for work in the security environment.

Cybersecurity is our passion

At Coastline College we strive to connect students with industry professionals in cybersecurity roles for mentorship and employment. Our program includes certificates and Associate of Science degrees in Cybersecurity and Computer Networking.

In 2014, Coastline College was designated a Center of Academic Excellence (CAE2Y) in accordance with the guidelines set forth by the National Security Agency and Department of Homeland Security. We have continued the efforts to grow our program through the addition of new courses and a student cybersecurity club called Xploit.


Learn cybersecurity techniques by taking classes while training in a hands-on environment with a local employer. The apprenticeship program offers courses in separate tracks for cybersecurity, information technology, and cloud computing. All courses are fully online with support for hands-on learning in the labs at our Garden Grove campus.
