Military training suffices for cyber qualifications, says Navy CIO

The Navy will give the same weight to military training completed in the IT and cyber fields that it does to commercial certification, said Terry Halvorsen, the Navy's CIO, reports Federal News Radio.

Halvorsen, who issued a memo detailing the new procedures, said that because the Navy has adjusted its IT and cyber training to meet emerging requirements, the service is now covering many of the topics in detail for which it was requiring personnel to obtain civilian or commercial certifications, the story said.

"What this new memo does is say where services you have met the requirements of those civilian certifications inside your standard training, you may now use that to meet the commercial certification requirements," Halvorsen said.
