    The CyMOT Training will meet entirely online. All course materials and activities will be provided. Class meetings will be held Tuesday and Thursday evenings and led by a live instructor. Completion of all three CyMOT courses will result in a Certificate in Manufacturing Cyber Systems Operation.

The 20-hour Manufacturing Cyber Systems Operation Course will focus on securing wireless technologies, IoT devices, and best practices in industrial and manufacturing settings. Students will be able to distinguish between different wireless network deployments and components used in industrial vertical markets. The course will present wireless networks from a communications protocol up approach, identify physical components that comprise secure Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial IoT architectures, and radio frequency considerations. Other topic areas of focus are securing, monitoring, maintaining, and troubleshooting wireless networks. Students will be evaluated using knowledge-based assessments at the end of each module.
