The College of Distance Education and Training (CDET) is the organization within the Marine Corps Education Command (EDCOM) with the mission to design, develop, deliver, evaluate, manage, and resource distance learning products and programs across the Marine Corps training and education continuum in order to increase operational readiness. CDET is a total force educational institution: it serves all U.S. military forces and DoD government agencies, as well as international military forces throughout the globe.
Our programs and courses concentrate on the leadership, warfighting, and staff development skills of the nation's military, and feature the educational standards, learning areas, and learning objectives of the Joint Professional Military Education (JPME) program required by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. They are accessible globally through a variety of delivery systems. Our online learning management system, MarineNet (more info), provides education to students wherever they are stationed. Learning resource centers are fielded to provide access to MarineNet and exam proctors. Our worldwide seminar program supports the professional military education (PME) distance education programs (DEPs) through a network of regional campuses and via the Moodle (more info) learning management system.
CDET's academic integrity policy informs CDET students, faculty, and proctors of the importance of academic integrity as it pertains to personal, academic, and professional endeavors. Participants in any CDET program must pledge to uphold these standards regarding personal integrity, collaboration, and plagiarism.
Our adjunct faculty conducts the seminars for CDET's PME distance education programs.
