Continuing Education Units (CEUs)


Maintain Your DoD 8570.01-M Credentials

Attend designated EAST: Joint Warfighting 2013 sessions to help sustain DoD 8570.01-M mandated certifications. Federal agencies have agreed that ever-changing cyber security threats lead to the need for a continuous learning process to help keep our workforce up to date. In response, industry certification bodies adopted a continuous education model to address the requirement. AFCEA has partnered with Cypherpath LLC, a cyber security training and education company, on a Continuing Education Unit (CEU) program to provide training and to document relevant critical knowledge and skills-related activities which meet DoD 8570.01-M requirements. Attendees may receive CEUs and/or CMUs by attending qualified sessions (designated with a **) to support CE requirements for sustaining DoD 8570.01-M certifications. Please stop by the AFCEA booth on the exhibit floor (#819) to obtain a flyer with answers to frequently asked questions about CEUs/CMUs and a list of approved sessions.


Other Credential Programs May Apply

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.
