Global ECCO New Account Request

Sign up to engage with terrorism experts and operators from countries around the world, to explore combating terrorism strategies through interactive gaming, and to watch interviews with fellow experts.

Who Can Receive an Account?

Since Global ECCO is a Department of Defense (DoD) program intended to network CTFP students and alumni, individuals who have completed a course with one of the CTFP affiliated schoolhouses are eligible for a Global ECCO account. As a DoD program, US government employees are also eligible for a Global ECCO account. Once the request is received, we must verify the requestor's affiliation. The verification process can take as little as one day, but can also take longer. Once it has been determined that the requestor is eligible for an account, an email will be sent with a link to create a password. Only one account will be created per eligible person.
