What is DOD Directive 8570.1 Network Security VA VRE


 


What is DOD Directive 8570.1?


Department of Defense

The U.S. Department of Defense recognizes CompTIA certifications in its technical and management tracks for information assurance technicians and managers under DoD Directive 8570.1M.
In today's environment of emerging security threats, the U.S. Department of Defense has recognized the critical need for highly-qualified, experienced information assurance personnel. To ensure a knowledgeable and skilled workforce the DoD has taken the necessary steps to develop a directive that involves the credentialing and continuing education of all DoD employees with privileged access to DoD information systems.
Specifically, the U.S. Department of Defense Directive 8570.1, signed in August of 2004, requires every full- and part-time military service member, defense contractor, civilian and foreign employee with privileged access to a DoD system, regardless of job series or occupational specialty, to obtain a commercial certification credential that has been accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
CompTIA certifications are internationally recognized and vendor-neutral.  We provide the CompTIA A+CompTIA Network+ and CompTIA Security+ Training Classes.
They are effective foundational-level certifications that pave the way to earning higher-level and vendor-specific certifications.

Technical 1 requirement:
met by CompTIA A+ or CompTIA Network+
Technical 2 requirement: met by CompTIA Security+
Management 1 requirement: met by CompTIA Security+

Support:

DANTES: Eligible Army Reserve, Army National Guard and Air Force Reserve personnel can apply for reimbursement of CompTIA exam fees
Department of Defense Personnel Certification Support System
Navy COOL: online resource for Navy personnel who fall into either IAT or IAM categories under Directive 8570.1M
Air Force Communications Agency: Funds DoD D8570.1 certification exam vouchers for individuals filling a position requiring such certification. MAJCOM IAMs will validate positions to ensure requirements.
*Sites may require valid CAC access or on-site access

Veterans

Information technology is a field with tremendous room for growth, and rich opportunities for military personnel transitioning into civilian life. The U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs recognizes CompTIA as a valuable provider of IT training by funding reimbursement for some of our programs.
All CompTIA certifications, including CompTIA A+CompTIA Network+ and CompTIA Security+, are reimbursable through the G.I. Bill. The Department of Veteran Affairs has an online application to apply for education benefits.
Veterans may be eligible to receive funding for career training and education through the Dept. of Veteran Affairs Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment (VRE) service. To find out if you are eligible for funding and to connect with a career counselor in your area, call the nationwide toll free number, 1-800-827-1000, and request VA Form 28-8832: Application for Vocational Educational Counseling.
