CompTIA Security + Information


Purpose

Train Department of Defense personnel for the IA technical level two Security+ certification, and in the practical application of network security techniques.

The Security+ course will train Army IA personnel to achieve Technical Level 2 certification. The curriculum will provide instruction on the bodies of knowledge required for the Security+ certification. Attendance at this course (after completion of the required pre-requisites) will satisfy the Army Technical Level 2 TRAINING requirement.


Prerequisites and Documentation

The following is a list of prerequisite certifications required to attend class:

  • Cyber Security Fundamentals (CSF) Training (Use login above to conduct this training online)
  • Army e-Learning Program - Security Plus modules (CIO/G-6 NETCOM INFORMATION ASSURANCE SECURITY PLUS (5 modules and Test Prep)) - estimated time: 3-4 working days. IAW AR 25-2,4-3a(6)(a).Details)

In addition, depending on employment position, other documentation is required:

  • Military personnel require a DD Form 1610.
  • Ft. Gordon military personnel require a DA Form 4187 (in lieu of DD Form 1610).
  • DA civilians require a DD Form 1610 or SF Form 182 (in lieu of DD Form 1556 per SF 182 memorandum).
  • Any personal without TDY orders are required to have a signed memorandum. (example)

All documentation must state that the student is directed to attend the Security+ Course. If this statement is not on the documentation, the student's home organization must amend the documents and fax them to IA while student is attending class, which can delay the student from receiving the certificate of completion. Students can be removed from class if documentation is not properly submitted.

NOTE: Both training completion certificates and additional documentation must be presented to instructor on the first day of class.
