CENG 003 Artificial Intelligence (AI) Intermediate Credential
(Last Modified: 22-Mar-2023)



This credential trains DoD acquisition professionals to manage Artificial Intelligence (AI) projects with a combination of commercial online training and DoD-specific training. Students will receive a grounding in the topics of AI definitions and technologies, the AI ecosystem, and the importance of data and algorithmic ethics, culminating in a Coursera course series certificate in “Ethics in the Age of AI.” It includes hands-on AI ethics activities and a capstone exam.

Multiple online DAU courses then put this foundation into a DoD acquisition project context, emphasizing DoD’s AI Strategy, Responsible AI (RAI) mandate, and how to adapt acquisition phases in alignment with industry best practice and emerging AI statutes, policies, and standards. Focus areas include: technologies under the AI umbrella; strategic planning for AI projects within an ethical RAI framework; how to discern when AI is present in a DoD product or vendor offering; building AI teams; contracting for AI; the importance of using modern software practices; data acquisition for AI; Machine Learning (ML) overview including machine learning operations (MLOps) and data pipeline operations; and emergent information on the new practices of Engineering for AI, Testing AI, and Logistics for AI. The DAU courseware culminates with a recap of where to find help in DoD and professional tips for how to get started with an AI project.
