Submitting a course I taught for CPE credits

Good day fellow Cyber Security Professionals - I've a quandry for you!

 

I've got lots of budding security experts in my organization and I was asked to help prep them for the Security+ SY0-601 Exam. I went through the domains, and the subdomains - and built up an 8 hour course where we went over what to expect so far as testing (90 minute exam with 90 questions), how to study, what sources to use, and what other certs to pursue, and ran through some practice questions to really see what information they were retaining (As an aside - I'm genually impressed by how much the Security+ exam has evolved). 

I've taught this class 3 times, and now I'm wondering how exactly to submit this teaching experience for CPEs. in looking at the submittal portal, I'm not even sure where to begin. I already plan on submitting the presentation as evidence, but was also going to submit a digitally signed memorandum from my Commander as further supporting documentation. 

EXSUM: 
1. How exactly do I submit this for CPEs? (I know the process, just not exactly the categories to select)
2. Am I missing anything so far as supporting evidence?
3. Does anyone have in tips for keeping up momentum with a "junior level" security education/mentoring program? I have leadership buy in - I just need more buy in from my peers. 

Any advice is greatly apprecaited.

Zarin,

You can claim CPE for developing a course, as well as for developing new material to update an existing course, but not for teaching it. 

RTFM, p. 15:

Create New Industry Knowledge
You can earn Group A CPE credits for creating new content for the topic related to your credential area of expertise.
Qualifying activities include:
     • Writing, researching & publishing
     • Preparation time for a webinar, podcast, or presentation
     • Preparing new or updating existing training seminar or classroom material (this excludes development of (ISC)2 Official Training Materials)
     • Serving as Subject Matter Expert (SME) for a panel discussion

Maximum number of CPE credits apply to the following activities:

...

- Preparing existing training - 1-day course equals 2 CPE credits, 2-day
course equals 5 CPE credits, 5-7 days course equals 10 CPE credits,
semester (12 or more weeks) equals 20 CPE credits

Read the linked guide for evidence details for your own comfort level. To me, it seems you have already planned adequate evidence.

 

Congrats on taking the initiative with your team. Excellent peer-leadership.

 

Craig
