MOS Pathways

One of CyberWatch West's goals is to help veterans returning from military service transition into college programs and careers in cybersecurity. Below is a military occupational specialty (MOS) crosswalk developed by CyberWatch West to help community colleges and other educational institutions translate the military skills, training, and experience of veterans into course equivalencies.

For an accurate comparison between the Whatcom Community College courses that have been mapped and courses at your institution, refer to the Course Outcomes chart at the bottom of the page.
