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

Several TechNet Land Forces East 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). TechNet Land Forces East 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 (#1209) to obtain a flyer with answers to frequently asked questions about CEUs.
