As outlined in the Secretary of the Navy Instruction, Cyberspace/Information Technology Continuous Learning, released Nov. 30, 2012, all cyberspace/IT professionals will participate annually in 40 hours of continuous learning activities.
The continuous learning program will include education, training, certification and other activities that support the sustainment and continued improvement of the capabilities of the DON Cyberspace/IT Workforce. Continuous learning will be accomplished through a combination of formal classroom training, experience and electronic media.
