Continuing Education (CE)
Our Continuing Education (CE) program is designed to support certifications related to U.S. Federal Government requirements. Several WEST sessions may support CompTIA, GIAC, and/or CertNexus certification maintenance requirements, and 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.
AFCEA and USNI will not be providing formal attendance documentation for either the CompTIA Boot Camp, the DON IT Conference sessions, or any sessions in the WEST Conference Program. Attendees may prepare their own attendance documentation for submission to the appropriate certifying organizations to maintain certification maintenance records. If in doubt, please check with your supervisor to confirm which sessions meet your training requirements.
