This study presents the context and measured results of cyber security joint cyber defense training exercises. Building on previously published work by the authors that introduced AGILE methodologies, this study analyzes the outcomes of that professional development and laboratory-supported environment. Analysis focuses on the development of specific individual skill levels and generally describes desired multi-agency collaborative capabilities. While all training events do not have sufficient pre-post data to isolate the particular causes of a rise in capabilities, competence in progressively harder levels of capabilities is observed over time in relation to the training components. A comprehensive Personalized Education Learning Environment (PELE) aggregate data of individuals is not presented here, indicators suggest that this would enhance outcomes.
