If you are referring to a Security or Cybersecurity job, I would say, "reach out to your state job board, unemployment office, or reach for jobs that have intern positions. Please keep in mind, when you are seeking a job, experience trumps pay. I firmly believe that once you have the experience, the pay will come in the end. In addition, if you already have your CompTIA Security +, take the time and go for your CCNA. The Cisco cert will provide more visibility and pay off. Plus, how can you call yourself a Security Analyst if you don't know the fundamental component of networking. Also if you have the money, Sans.org certification are well with it too. Website for training: 1) cybrary.it 2)www.immersivelabs.com 3. hackthebox academy 4) https://fareedfauzi.github.io/ctfonline/# 5) www.itpro.tv 6.) Sans.org 7. Kali.org . But you get my point...

Dustin, hello! Yes you can take a course at your local comm. College all most all have it. But if your looking for armed which is what I did , its best to talk with county sheriff office or state police troop. You'll have to have background check etc. Also will have to take conceal/carry course. ( Armed is where the money is !) Also most security companies will send and pay for any courses you need to become successful and employable. Best of luck and enjoy!... I know I had fun at security work.

You can usually pay for most security companies that are willing to train you anyway and apply for your state card with company you apply for

Right now it's all online but some places do not require it so that's a way to get experience.

Cybrary.com is an amazing resource you can join for free. Their classes are well taught. I highly recommend starting here. You can also take a look at Coursera.com where you can audit for free classes taught at some of the best universities in the country.

Setup a list of goals and deadlines for achieving those goals. Your first might be, Study and Pass Comptia Sec+ certificate. Keep a well organized binder of what you have done to become a security professional and bring that to your interview.

Join industry groups, to stay current and be ready to talk about these activities you take part in.

No matter what you do in this life, go at it with everything you have and that will be very apparent to the right employer willing to give you your first go at it! Good luck!

No where each company gives you a BS 16hr training course but basically you learn on the job.
