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

A New Semester Starts August 24, 2015!

Join other security professionals throughout the U.S. military and Federal Government who 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. There is limited space available for the Fall Semester (August 24, 2015 to December 18, 2015).

These courses will enhance your analytical thinking and problem solving skills. In addition, they provide critical knowledge about principle concepts and facts for future leaders within DoD. 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). The only exception is "Risk Management Project and Advanced Studies" (ED 603), which is scheduled for ACE review in Summer 2015.
