Since 2004, CSSIA has instructed more than 4,000 teachers and college faculty in cybersecurity related areas. Surveys show that 73% are already using or plan to use curricula and instructional materials provided at the professional development programs. Hands-on complex laboratory exercises was the most valuable aspect of the learning experience.

In some cases, CSSIA can even subsidize the faculty development costs. Other outcomes include the opportunity to earn graduate credit as part of the train-the-trainer faculty development process. In many cases these credits have led to the completion of accredited MS in CS degrees. The most requested faculty courses include Ethical Hacking, CISSP, VMware ICM, EMC ISM, Cybersecurity, CCNA Security, Forensics and more.
