Along the way we have added the following CAE's:

In March of 2014 ICSEC became the first CISSE Chapter and has changed its name to Midwest CISSE Chapter and is incorporated in the State of Michigan. While, our membership is not hinged on CAE status, we all work towards excellence. MCISSE members work together sharing curriculum, course ware, tools and experiences.
