The 15 Hour Path Back to Employment

Cyber Education Partners introduces a One Week Contact Tracing Certificate Program


[MIAMI, FL , 5.11.2020] — As the current crisis reaches a head, mass furloughs, layoffs, hour and salary cuts have left more than 20,500,000 Americans facing difficult questions. How will I pay my bills? How will I feed my family? How can I make more income? The answer: contact tracing. Contact tracing is the practice of tracing the possible transmission of virulent diseases, infections and viruses to mitigate transmission and risk to the community. With over 300,000 expected positions, Cyber Education Partners has created an online, live instructor-led Contact Tracing Certificate course to train students to fill the gap of this immediate opportunity to help hard working Americans get back on their feet.


A federally funded program is in place to expand the contact tracing workforce with 44 states and Washington D.C. planning a 200% increase in contact tracing employment over last released numbers. Even as the curve flattens, contact tracing will remain a relevant and in-demand career, vital to opening and continued success of the economy and safeguarding against further transmission and risk. The week-long course with 15 hours of training begins June 1st, 2020. Cyber Education Partners offers economic hardship discounts available for affected individuals. Course registration is now open here.

Contact tracing is an immediate and in-demand career path. But as a relatively unknown industry in the United States, individuals need guidance on the skills necessary to do the job. Cyber Education Partners’ is partnering with universities across the United States to quickly train the workforce for contract tracing jobs earning an average of $17/hour.


"Many people are hurting right now, and the government has a huge need for contact tracers to help the nation recover and better respond to outbreaks in the future. We want to help people get back on their feet and this new program can do that." Richard Chance, CEO, CyberEd Partners
