DSST 2015 program enhancements

The nationally recognized DSST® credit-by-exam program is very effective, but Prometric’s goal is to make it even better. That’s why they are investing in greater resources to revitalize existing exam content and develop new exams that will be “courses for success” for military members seeking college credits for learning acquired outside the traditional classroom.

This year, Prometric will be busy creating content for new exams that reflect the latest academic studies and fields of knowledge covering the humanities, science, social sciences, global/world cultures, business, mathematics and technology.

In 2014, Prometric created new course content and added the exam “Fundamentals of Cybersecurity” to the DSST family of exams. This exam has been fully evaluated by the American Council on Education (ACE) and recommended for three upper-division level college credits. The exam covers subject areas including Systems Security, Application Security, Network Security, Governance and much more.

The DSST program allows Test Control Officers (TCOs) to help ensure that deserving Service members have the opportunity to use their knowledge to earn credit towards college degrees.
