October DoD365 Boot Camp dates available

By MyCG Staff

Are you ready to learn more about DoD365? The October training sessions under the DoD365 Boot Camp initiative are scheduled for the week of Monday, Oct. 4, 2021. To participate in the training, all you’ll need is the web link for a particular training session and to be ready to join on the specific date and time that training is scheduled. 

It is highly recommended that you test your ability to access the training in advance. Here’s how:
 
Review the general DoD365 Teams Tech Tips (CaC required to access) and follow the sections entitled, “Clear your Cookies before accessing a Teams meetings via web browser” and “Issues accessing the Teams Desktop Application?” Following these steps will help prevent errors when logging into internal or external Teams meetings (either through the web or desktop application) caused by a user’s history of the now decommissioned Commercial Virtual Remote (CVR) version of Teams.
 
Review the “Tech Tips” for successful access to the DoD365 Boot Camp training sessions (CaC required to access). Of note, you must attend DoD365 Boot Camp training via the web browser and not through the DoD365 Teams Desktop application. Further, you must select “Or join anonymously” when prompted.
 
Microsoft has provided a “Test Window” on Friday, Oct. 1, 2021 from 12 – 4 p.m. EDT. During this time, you can visit the test link to verify your audio and video settings are working properly. Here are the steps:
 

  • Copy and paste the test link into your browser: https://aka.ms/CGBootCampTest.
  • Follow the steps in the “Tech Tips” for successful access to the DoD365 Boot Camp training sessions to access the link.
  • If you see a slide and hear sound, you are all set! 
  • If you experience issues and have followed the Tech Tips in section 1 and 2 above, please send an email to SMB-USCG-M365@uscg.mil with “Issues Accessing DoD365 Boot Camp Training” in the subject line.
