The DISA Global Operations Command (DGOC) hosted Core Operations Training Course (COTC) introduces students to a common core of standards allowing the various CCMD, Service, and Agency (C/S/A) DoD Information Network (DoDIN) Operations Centers to communicate, coordinate, and collaborate with the DCOG Orion Cyberspace Operations Center on the symbiotic operation and security of the DISA managed portion of the DoDIN.

During the first week of instruction, Subject Matter Experts highlight the processes, procedures, tools, and functionalities of DISA Global Operations through 35+ blocks of instruction.

The course is designed as a five-day resident course at Scott AFB. Attending units have the option of an additional week of hands-on-training within the Orion Cyberspace Operations Center. During the second week, students will operate and secure the DoDIN working alongside the Orion Cyberspace Operations Center's Battle Captains and Watch Officers.

Optional Certification: The additional optional week of training allows students to apply their first week of training to real world operate and secure actions. This one-of-a-kind experience provides the student a global view of operations and security that will assist their unit when they return to home station.

Previous attendees have come from The Executive Office of the President, all military Service branches, and Combatant Commands totally over 350 personnel trained.

At the successful conclusion of the certification portion of the course, a graduation ceremony is hosted by the DISA Global Commander.

There is no cost for course attendance but units must fund travel per-diem TDY. A secret security clearance is required for attendance.
