This website is the premier destination for accessing security awareness courses for DoD and other U.S. Government and defense industry personnel who do not require transcripts to fulfill training requirements for their specialty.

A certificate is provided after the course is completed; however, there is no record maintained by CDSE. Additional eLearning and instructor-led courses, that CDSE maintains a record of, are available on the CDSE Learning Management System called STEPP. To view these additional courses, please see the complete course catalog at https://www.cdse.edu/catalog/index.html.

As a cleared individual, you have an obligation to protect classified information. Failure to do so can result in damage to national security and the warfighter. There are approved avenues to report fraud, waste or other abuse through existing whistle blower or inspector general channels. There are also approved channels for the release and review of DoD information.

Checkout our Unauthorized Disclosure Toolkit to learn the difference, where and how to report both unauthorized disclosure and questionable government behavior and activities, and more. Unauthorized disclosure is not whistleblowing, it's a crime.
