MOAT – Security Awareness Training

The State of Virginia requires that all employees participate in security awareness training every year.

To meet this mandate, PDCCC is using the MOAT online training program for all staff, faculty, administrators, and anyone with LAN or email access.  The training is completed online and a certificate of completion is awarded when all modules have been successfully completed and the documents in the Paul D. Camp Community College Vault have been read. The online database keeps a record of all of those who complete the training and provides the certificate for the employees to keep for their own records.  Employees do not have to submit the certificate to anyone because it is tracked automatically.

In order to have LAN or email access, all employees must successfully complete the MOAT training within 30 days of starting employment with the college. Re-certification is required yearly in order to retain access. Users are automatically notified when re-certification is required.  Supervisors are notified if the employee approaches noncompliance or becomes overdue.

The training provides faculty, staff, and administrators with valuable information about best practices, policies, and procedures for ensuring secure information systems at PDCCC. Our goal is for everyone to enjoy a safe computing environment.

As an employee, you will receive an email from with your username and password. When it is time for you to renew the training (it must be done yearly), you will receive notification notifications starting 30 days prior to the new due date.
