Registration is Open for Upcoming Tuition Free, CDSE Education Classes!

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.

These 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).
