NOTE 1: If you are completing this course as a prerequisite for a CDSE instructor-led course or as part of a specific CDSE training curriculum, you must take the final exam in STEPP to receive credit for completion. The passing grade is (75%) for the examination. You may register for the exam via STEPP at http://www.cdse.edu/stepp/index.html.

NOTE 2: The course includes a printable certificate which can serve as evidence that a student completed the course. When a student takes the course using this link, CDSE will not maintain any record of that student by name or any personally identifiable information. If the student needs documentation that he or she has completed the course, he or she will have to print the certificate at the end of the course.

NOTE 3: Each course provides either a closed caption button (located at the bottom of the course) or a transcript button (located at the top or bottom of the course). This provides a text version of each course section. For any other 508 Compliance/Accessibility inquiries please contact dss.cdseenterprisemgmt@mail.mil.
