Security: Will consist of the Security Plus Exam plus additional questions. This exam will be a comparable version of the actual security plus exam.

Web Development: Competitors will utilize their creativity to develop the best possible website in the time allotted using web design tools such as HTML and Bootstrap. Project will be scored (1-10) based on three criteria: 1) aesthetics including color choices and layout decisions, 2) responsiveness between desktop and mobile versions, and 3) professionalism, simplicity and clarity of HTML, CSS and JavaScript (if used).

Database Design: Competitors will create ERDs, including relationships, cardinality, and keys. Contestants will use Oracle to work in a database to answer SQL questions. Files will be provided for competing, but contestants are asked to bring their own USB storage device.

Business Analytics: Competitors will use tools to create a presentation from an analyst’s position. You may be expected to answer questions and make recommendations to aid in business operations in a lifelike business simulation as well as be able to predict trends for future.
