What is Directive 8570?

In August of 2004 the US Department of Defense (DoD) signed Directive 8570, which requires every part-time or full-time military member or defense contractor with privileged access to a DoD information system to carry an approved certification for their particular job classification.

This measure ensures that those performing information assurance (security) measures have the necessary skills and knowledge to protect important information.

New hires must obtain appropriate baseline certifications within six months of being assigned to information assurance functions.

Continuing Education Units (CEUs)

Continuing your education is just as important as earning your certification. Many certifications actually require you to earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs). CEUs are used to show a working knowledge on a subject. The topics can vary from field to field, but the knowledge earned is always current and relevant. Earning CEUs will not only keep your certification current but feed you valuable information in this rapidly changing technology climate.

  • CEUs are offered for all CompTIA certifications. 
  • Our wide range of Free Webinars also offer a way to continue learning. 

Lunch and Learns are also available to be hosted at our local center or your location. Our technical experts can deliver presentations on a wide range of topics. Contact your local NHDoD liaison to schedule a lunch and learn in your area.

"I took my CompTIA Security+ classes at New Horizons Career Development Solutions to help me get ready for my certification. The computer based learning classes allowed me to learn at my own pace and as a Veteran I was able to use my GI Bill ®. Everything was too easy and worked out great! I plan to definitely go back to take other computer classes."
