About The Instructor
Professor Brian O’Hare has over 25 years of experience in the IT industry.  He started off in web design as a Corporate Webmaster but wanted to understand how the internet worked.  While working towards his bachelor’s in computer science, he studied and got his MCSE (Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer) and his MCT (Microsoft Certified Trainer).  Once certified he paid for his degree working as a Network Engineer and then a Trainer for others wanting to learn about Microsoft’s Desktop and Server products.

After finishing up his degree in Computer Science, Professor O’Hare also earned his CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Associate) and with that became a Senior Network Engineer.  The company he worked for began to expand and grow, so the professor grew with it.  After hiring additional network administrators and engineers he was promoted to Director of Information Technology.  A few years later the company expanded further, adding offices around the world.  With this came Professor O’Hare’s promotion to Vice President of Technology and eventually Chief Information Officer.

As technology grew and security became a major focus in the IT field, Professor O’Hare felt the need to expand his knowledge further, studying and earning both his CEH (Certified Ethical Hacker) and CEPT (Certified Expert Penetration Tester).  Upon completion of those certifications, he convinced the company that his focus and the focus of certain members of his staff should rest solely on security.  The company then named him Chief Information Security Officer and expanded their business model to include security consulting as well.

When the company was sold in 2015 Professor O’Hare moved on to become the Vice President of Technology for his local CBS affiliate, as well as two other television stations.  After keeping three television stations on the air 24/7 for a few years he decided it was time to move on and pass on the knowledge he had acquired all these years.

He became a professor for Vista College, a school that offered multiple education options including an Information Technology Associates Degree program.  As the Senior IT Instructor, Professor O’Hare taught many of the advance level classes regarding networking, server deployment (both Windows and Linux), and of course IT Security.  His students had a 98% passing rate on the CompTIA Network+ and Security+ exams and was named Professor of the Year in 2020.  With the arrival of COVID-19, Vista College was forced to close in late 2021 due to low admission rates.

Professor O’Hare then decided to become a freelance instructor, which works out well because it brought him here to us.  His enthusiasm and dedication make him a great addition to our team.
