Continuing Education Units


Maintain Certifications While Attending Conferences

AFCEA’s Continuing Education (CE) program is specifically targeted to support maintenance of cybersecurity certifications related to DoD 8570.01-M compliance. Many AFCEA event sessions and courses are approved for CompTIA continuing education units (CEUs), GIAC continuing professional education (CPEs), and/or CertNexus continuing education credits (CECs).  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 requirements. Please check AFCEA International and AFCEA chapter event websites for more information about specific sessions and courses.

The AFCEA Advantage

Formal attendance documentation for many AFCEA continuing education sessions is a benefit of AFCEA membership. Be sure to register as a member when you register for the event.  Participation for at least an hour of an entire approved session is necessary to qualify for CompTIA CEUs, GIAC CPEs, and/or CertNexus CECs. On exiting the session, get your badge scanned to document your attendance.  If badge scanning is not supported at the event be sure to see on-site staff to verify your name is on the appropriate attendance list for the session. AFCEA members receive their documentation via email.
