Continuing Education (CE)

Reviewing Organizations

Our Continuing Education (CE) program is designed to support certifications related to U.S. Federal Government requirements. Several WEST sessions will be reviewed by CompTIA, GIAC, and CertNexus 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. We will post information about approved sessions as the reviews are completed.

Continuing education attendance documentation: Formal attendance documentation is a benefit for AFCEA and USNI members. Participation in the entire session qualifying for CompTIA CEUs, GIAC CPEs, and/or CertNexus CECs is required. If you are a member be sure register for the event as a member so you will be eligible for formal attendance documentation for applicable sessions you attend. 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.
