For compliance with DoD 8570.01-M, as of January 1, 2011, the U.S. DoD no longer recognizes CompTIA's good-for-life (GFL) certifications. Individuals certified after December 31, 2010, are in compliance with DoD 8570.01-M for three years from their certification date and are automatically enrolled in the CompTIA CE Program. Note that CE Program participants must pay an annual fee as part of their successful program completion.
DoD components may purchase bulk tokens from CompTIA that can be used by employees to pay their annual CE fees. Check with your manager or component POC to find out if you’re eligible for a token. CE tokens do not expire and are non-refundable. A minimum purchase of 10 CE Tokens is required per order. Some exceptions apply.
If you’re a component POC responsible for purchasing CE tokens for your employees, email email@example.com for ordering information.
You may be required to keep your CompTIA certification status updated in the DMDC. Check with your IAM to verify if this is a requirement for you.
For any DMDC technical issues, please email the DMDC helpdesk.
