Education and Professional Development

Ensuring an educated, trained and relevant work force—from early career to advanced training—is part of AFCEA’s value proposition. Scholarships, training and continuing education are available at the international, national and chapter levels.

Continuing Education Opportunities at AFCEA Events

AFCEA offers continuing education for attending approved sessions at nearly all of its events. Certification organizations,  CompTIA, GIAC and CertNexus, review session descriptions to determine which sessions support continuing education requirements for cyber security certification maintenance. Event sessions may also support (ISC)2, National Contract Management Association (NCMA), Project Management Institute (PMI), GAGAS, and Defense Acquisition Workforce continuing education and/or certification maintenance.

AFCEA Member-Only Benefit - Formal Attendance Documentation for Continuing Education at Many AFCEA Events

Formal continuing education attendance documentation is a benefit of AFCEA membership. AFCEA members who attend an entire session that qualifies for CompTIA CEUs, GIAC CPEs, and/or CertNexus CECs may qualify to receive an official email documenting session attendance. At most events attendance will be recorded by scanning badges after each session to ensure accurate documentation is provided. AFCEA works with the certifying organizations listed to ensure our documentation meets their requirements.
