    Answer "YES" to the question: "Do you teach a cybersecurity class in a public school, college, or university in Virginia?"

    Additionally, you can opt in to the monthly newsletter. A captcha challenge is required to proceed.

  4. After filling out the form and clicking the confirm button, you will see a thank you message as seen in the image below. Your application will be sent to the organization administrators for review and you will be notified with either an email that contains an invitation link to create your account in the Cyber Range, or a rejection email explaining why you do not qualify for access.

    While waiting for account approval, you can browse the courseware repository for available content.
