Our Continuing Education (CE) program is designed to support certifications related to U.S. Federal Government requirements. Several TechNet Asia-Pacific sessions will be approved to meet CompTIA and/or GIAC 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.


  1. How do I identify symposium sessions that are approved for CompTIA CEUs or GIAC CPEs? Approved sessions for are noted on the reverse side of this flyer, and will be included in the event show guide and mobile application, and on the event website  http://events.afcea.org/TNAP17/Public/enter.aspx


  1. How do I obtain the session documentation required for me to submit to CompTIA and/or GIAC? Formal attendance documentation is a benefit of AFCEA membership and a service provided to attendees who purchased a continuing education (CE) pass for the event.   Participation in an event session qualifying for CompTIA CEUs and/or GIAC CPEs is required.  On exiting the session, get your event badge scanned so that we can document your attendance.   We will email documentation of your attendance by December 15, 2017.


  1. Will attendance documentation be available for all approved sessions listed on the flyer as of the start of the event? Yes, however, only sessions which last at least one hour will qualify for CEUs and/or CPEs so be sure to take the opportunity to ask questions of the speaker.


  1. What if I need additional information about specific continuing education programs?

CompTIA allows individuals to keep their skills current and many of their certifications up to date without retesting by participation in CEU-qualified training activities.   For details on CompTIA Continuing Education Program FAQs:  https://certification.comptia.org/continuing-education/how-to-renew/earn-continuing-education-units.


AFCEA members can receive up to a 15% discount on Certification Vouchers at  www.traintestcert.com

Each GIAC certification remains valid for 4 years.   Two years after certification the renewal process will begin, and individuals must maintain their credentials through Continuing Professional Experience (CPE).   For details visit: http://www.giac.org/pdfs/cert-renewal/faq.pdf.  You may also email cert-renewal@giac.org.

Credential holders must earn the minimum number of Continuing Professional Experience (CPEs) annually during each year of the three-year certification cycle. Members must earn and submit the minimum annual number of CPEs to maintain their certification in “good standing.” For more information visit https://www.isc2.org/maintaining-your-credential.aspx
