Let AFCEA's Professional Development Center Aid Your Career Journey
One of AFCEA’s primary focus areas is helping information technology (IT) professionals keep pace with technologies as they evolve. The association accomplishes this task in numerous ways, including continuing education courses at the international and chapter levels, and supporting students entering the field through scholarships and grants.
To assist corporations and government organizations in maintaining staff education, AFCEA’s Professional Development Center (PDC) offers on-site courses, where the association sends an instructor to your location. AFCEA’s instructors are highly regarded government and industry experts, university professors and published authors. Currently, the association offers four on-site courses through the PDC: Automated High Frequency Radio, Military Satellite Communications, Principles of Communications and Networks, and U.S. Intelligence: An Introduction. When companies, commands and government agencies identify a need other than the material offered, AFCEA works with them to develop a course tailored to their needs.
Additionally, the PDC on-site course program enables you to train your staff for a minimum cost. The association will train your personnel for a fixed price, saving your employees time and money on travel.
