Registration now open for fall 2021 semester of CDSE tuition-free education classes

Registration is now open for the Fall semester of CDSE Education classes that run from August 23 to December 17, 2021. Classes fill quickly, so please register early to secure your spot in the Fall semester. 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, research, 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.
You can learn more about the classes being offered and register for them by accessing the links here: https://www.cdse.edu/education/courses.html. To register, log into STEPP via: https://cdse.usalearning.gov/login/index.ph.

Webinar archive updates

CDSE has made several changes to the Webinars and Conferences webpages. We have removed the “On Demand Webinar” webpage and renamed the “Previously Recorded Videos” webpage to the “Webinar Archive” accessible by clicking a new button located on the top, right side of the homepage
The webinars with the option for a downloadable CDSE Certificate of Training (previously located on the “On Demand Webinar” webpage) are now listed in the “Webinar Archive” and are identified with a certificate icon. The updates streamline the process of accessing archived webinars with and without the certificate option by placing all information on one page.
CDSE also recently added the following two Industrial Security Webinars to the archive:
NAESOC for Industry (FSOs) - This presentation provides Facility Security Officers (FSO) with an expanded understanding of Insider Threat concern, resources, and programs, emphasizing issues for National Access Elsewhere Security Oversight Center (NAESOC) assigned facilities. https://www.cdse.edu/catalog/webinars/industrial-security/naesoc-for-fsos.html
NAESOC for Government Contracting Authorities (GCAs) - This presentation provides the Government Customer (GCA), Program Manager, Agency Representative, etc., with an introduction to the National Access Elsewhere Security Oversight Center (NAESOC) operations and capabilities that describes how the NAESOC supports the government customer in National Industrial Security Program (NISP) oversight responsibilities. https://www.cdse.edu/catalog/webinars/industrial-security/naesoc-for-gca.html
