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

A New Semester Starts January 4, 2016!

Take charge of your career and join others 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.  Limited space is available for the Spring Semester of classes that run from January 4, 2016 to April 22, 2016.

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 (SME) 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).
