NED Training

As of August 6, 2015, the NED training classes for beginner and advanced NED users sponsored by the HSPD-12 Program Office has been suspended through the end of the fiscal year. The HSPD-12 Program Office plans to resume this popular training program in early FY 2016. Once the new class schedule for FY 2016 is confirmed, the Program Office will post it here and in the bi-weekly DPSAC News e-newsletter.
