** Earn CEUs and Maintain Your DoD 8570.01-M Credentials While Advancing Your Cyber Security Career

Several AFCEA Cyber Symposium sessions will help attendees sustain DoD 8570.01-M mandated certifications. Over the past several years, federal agencies have collectively agreed that the ever-changing threats associated with cyber security create the need for a continuous learning process to reduce risk to our national security. In response, industry certification bodies adopted a continuous education model to address these issues. AFCEA has partnered with Cypherpath, a cyber security training and education company, to launch a new Continuing Education Unit (CEU) program to train, manage and report relevant critical knowledge and skills-related activities required to meet DoD 8570.01-M requirements. Individuals must enroll in the CE Program, attend qualified sessions, obtain and submit validated documentation in order to earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs). AFCEA Cyber Symposium attendees may receive CEUs for sessions designated (by a **) to support CE requirements for sustaining DoD 8570.01-M certifications. Please stop by the AFCEA booth to obtain a flyer with answers to frequently asked questions about CEUs. Event attendance may also satisfy other continuing education requirements. Please contact the appropriate oversight organization for determination. Some applicable organizations might include: Project Management Institute (PMI), National Contract Management Association (NCMA) and ISC2.
