    Just spreading the word.............

    The Defense Security Service (DSS), Center for Development of Security
    Excellence (CDSE), offers a variety of free online advanced and graduate
    level security-related courses to US Government employees and Military
    Service Members. The American Council on Education (ACE) college credit
    recommendations allow students who complete these CDSE courses to transfer
    credit towards completion of a Bachelor's or Master's degree at many
    colleges and universities. No fee or tuition is charged for CDSE courses;
    however, some courses require students to obtain textbooks. Registration is
    now open for Spring Semester online classes that begin on January 5, 2015!

    Each course is a semester long and requires a level of effort similar to a
    three semester-hour graduate course. This includes reading, research and
    writing assignments and participation in online learning activities. The
    following courses are available during the Spring Semester (January 5 to
    April 24, 2014).

    . (ED 201) Writing and Communication Skills for Security Professionals

    . (ED 501) Security as an Integral Part of DoD Programs
