The fourth volume in the Software Assurance Curriculum Project led by a team at the Software Engineering Institute, this report focuses on community college courses for software assurance. The report includes a review of related curricula, outcomes and body of knowledge, expected background of target audiences, and outlines of six courses. The courses are intended to provide students with fundamental skills for continuing with graduate-level education or to provide supplementary education for students with prior undergraduate technical degrees who wish to become more specialized in software assurance.

Previous volumes of this project are Volume I: Master of Software Assurance Reference Curriculum, Volume II: Undergraduate Course Outlines, and Volume III: Software Assurance Course Syllabi.
