Space Is Available For Upcoming Tuition Free, CDSE Education Classes!

A New Semester Starts April 27, 2015!

Security professionals throughout the U.S. military and Federal Government are taking advantage of CDSE's curriculum of semester-long advanced and graduate courses.  These courses are designed to prepare DoD security professionals for leadership positions and responsibilities.  CDSE has space available for classes that run from April 27, 2015 to August 21, 2015 (listed below).  These classes fill quickly, so register now. 

These courses will enhance your analytical thinking and problem solving skills.  In addition, they will help you gain critical knowledge about principle concepts and facts that anyone who wants to be a future leader within DoD should know.  The courses include reading, researching, and writing assignments similar to a three credit, collegiate-level course.  A significant time commitment is required but the commitment will pay off.  The courses are online, tuition free, and allow students the flexibility to collaborate with each other and subject matter expert instructors when they want.  All of the courses have received college credit recommendations from the American Council on Education College Credit Recommendation Service (ACE CREDIT).
