DAU offers an entire platform of learning assets to meet the career-long needs of the Defense Acquisition Workforce (DAW). At the foundation of these learning assets are the learning assets (training courses) DAU delivers in the classroom setting, virtually and online via our virtual campus.

Training Courses Instructor led training (ILT), virtual instructor led training (VILT) and online training (OLT) courses of varying lengths designed to meet acquisition career field core certification standards as well as specific assignment and professional developmental needs in the form of Credentials .

For each training course there is a published concept cards with basic information on the particular learning asset such as:

  • Course Descriptions
  • Target Audience
  • Intended Outcomes (Objectives)
  • Mode of Delivery
  • Available Equivalent Courses
  • Continuous Learning Points and CEU's awarded
  • American Council on Education (ACE) recommended college credits
  • Reserve Retirement Points (RRPs)

While viewing a concept card, you can apply for the course or module by selecting the “Apply for this Course" button located in the upper right corner of each course concept card. Please note:

  • DAU does not register students for non OLT courses. Within each DoD Agency or Component Directors of Acquisition Career/Talent Management (DACM/DATM) oversee registration and attendance for these courses. Normally, the DACM/DATM give priority to DAW members who are pursuing certification in an acquisition career field.
  • Attendance to a training course presumes the student meets any course prerequisite requirements.

Most OLT, except for those supported by the HBS, are accessible by our industry partners and non DoD Federal agencies by those with a DAU Virtual Campus (Learning Management System (CSOD)) account.
