The DISA Global Telecommunications Seminar is designed for the person who needs a basic understanding of the DISA provisioning process and requires the ability to submit/manage their unified capabilities requirements. This 4 day seminar is held at DISA Global Field Command, Scott Air Force Base, Illinois and covers web telecommunications request processes. During the course, students will receive information to facilitate the ordering and life cycle management of their communications requirements. Other presentations include the DISA Network, Defense Switched Network, DISN Router Service, and several other briefings related to the provisioning process. A secret security clearance is required to attend. For specific security clearance procedures please refer to the Visitor Access Request (VAR) document.
