Continuing Education

AFCEA’s Continuing Education (CE) program is designed to support certifications related to U.S. Federal Government requirements. Several sessions at the Defensive Cyber Operations Symposium will be reviewed by CompTIA, GIAC, and Logical Operations to determine if the sessions meet continuing education requirements for certification maintenance. Sessions may also support (ISC)2, National Contract Management Association (NCMA), Project Management Institute (PMI), GAGAS, and Defense Acquisition Workforce continuing education and/or certification maintenance requirements.

If your AFCEA membership will not be current during DCOS, please join or renew at if you plan to request continuing education attendance documentation.

If your membership will be current during DCOS and you forgot to register for the event using your membership number please validate your membership and eligibility for formal attendance documentation at

Continuing education attendance documentation: Formal attendance documentation is a benefit for AFCEA members. Participation in the entire session qualifying for CompTIA CEUs, GIAC CPEs, and/or Logical Operations CECs is required. On exiting the session, get your event badge scanned so that we can document your attendance. We cannot document your attendance if you do not get your badge scanned at the close of the session.
