A New Semester Starts August 21, 2017!

Take charge of your career and join other security professionals throughout the U.S military and Federal Government who are taking advantage of CDSE's advanced and graduate courses. These courses are semester-long and are designed to prepare students for leadership positions and responsibilities. There is limited space available for the fall semester of classes that run from August 21 to December 15, 2017.

Here is a sample of the courses that are being offered this fall with seats still available:

Understanding Adversaries and Threats to the United States and the DoD ED504.10

This course addresses counterintelligence, counterterrorism, insider threats, and threats to critical information systems. In addition, this course covers such critical threats as embezzlement, physical sabotage, violence in the workplace by disgruntled employees, and others that must be addressed by the senior security manager. The course familiarizes students with government and non-government sources of reliable threat information.

Research Methods, Data Analysis, and Reporting to Support DoD Security Programs ED508.10

This course addresses research strategy and design, data collection, statistical and interpretive analysis, and final report preparation. The focus of this course is not on mastery of statistics but on the ability to use research in the Department of Defense (DoD) Security environment.

Organizational Considerations in Applying Security within the Federal and DoD Bureaucracy ED502.10

This course presents an in-depth look at how to work within the Federal and DoD bureaucracy to accomplish security missions and objectives. The course will address how security professionals can support military operations and DoD programs most effectively. The course includes in-depth study of the missions, jurisdiction of, and limitations upon the many agencies and offices involved in security policy and programs.

All of our Education courses enhance analytical thinking and problem solving skills, as well as help students 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).
