Special to the Register & Bee

Danville Community College associate professor of information technology and DCC cyber center director Steven Carrigan was recognized earlier this year for completing 20 years of service in Cisco’s Networking Academy.

“I currently run the network engineer, cyber security, and small unmanned aircraft systems programs, the Cyber Knights Club, the DCC Cyber Center, and all the online courses and the data center I operate,” Carrigan explained. “Currently, I have five adjuncts who all teach online and in the classroom and, at last count, my team offers about 20 different courses live online [synchronously] and I will be adding to that number hopefully by the end of this year; my goal is to make my entire program available online and in the classroom.”

DCC IT Academy offerings are Cisco Academy, RedHat Academy, VMware Academy, Microsoft Academy, CompTIA Academy and Palo Alto Academy.

Danville Community College is a two-year institution of higher education under the state-wide Virginia Community College System. DCC’s service area includes the City of Danville, Pittsylvania County and Halifax County.
