Note: CERT STEPfwd (Simulation, Training, and Exercise Platform) is a research initiative to search for innovative ways to compress the time it takes to build cyber expertise and to amplify that expertise across a globally distributed workforce. The CERT Program is pleased to work with AFCEA members to continue this important research, and to provide some relevant, self-study content to assist in their professional development efforts.

Each registration will include a one year subscription to the CERT content and access to the STEPfwd platform from the date of initial approved access. After payment, AFCEA will coordinate with Software Engineering Institute (SEI) for student access to the training portal.

* For DoD (.mil) and Federal (.gov) IA professionals, CERT cyber security training is available free through FedVTE. Please contact the FedVTE help desk to obtain the contact information for your agency's Community Manager to obtain an account.
