FAQ - Frequently Asked Question
What are the annual EIV security training requirements?


F. Security Training 

EIV users are required to complete online security training annually. To meet this requirement, EIV users must complete the online Federal ISS Awareness training program. At the end of the training, EIV users must print and maintain the Certificate of Completion provided.

 To complete online Security Awareness Training:

  • Open your web browser.
  • Type https://public.cyber.mil/training/cyber-awareness-challenge/.
  • Press Enter.
  • Click on CyberAwareness Challenge (for DoD and Federal Personnel) icon on the IA Education, Training and Awareness Screen.
  • Launch CyberAwareness Challenge Federal Version
  • Proceed with the training.
  • When the training is complete, print and maintain the Certificate of Completion.

    Note:  The Security Awareness Training described above is the same training required for those individuals who transmit TRACS files.  If the training has been completed to satisfy TRACS security training requirements, this will satisfy EIV security training requirements as well so long as the completion date represented on the Certificate of Completion is not older than one year.
