We are proud to announce that DAU credentials are now discoverable on Credential Engine. The inclusion of DAU credentials on this platform will enable Defense Acquisition Workforce members and hiring authorities to quickly assess the value of a DAU credential relative to other credentials, ensuring that acquisition professionals have the right skills for the right roles.
DAU credentials are small blocks of courses that enable acquisition professionals to quickly develop the skills they need to have demonstrable impacts on their programs. By self-selecting the credentials they need, workforce members are not spending hundreds of hours in courses that are not relevant to their current situations. The DAU credential program reduces the amount of time students will spend in up front certification training by encouraging them to pursue career long, just-in-time, job-specific training.
In the future, talent development of the acquisition workforce will include credentials that workers want and need to do their job. By participating on Credential Engine, DAU credentials can be compared to other organizations’ credentials and ensure the information aligns to industry standards and occupational requirements.
Credential Engine is a private, no-profit organization that catalogs credentials from a variety of institutions to create “credential transparency, reveal the credential marketplace, increase credential literacy, and empower everyone to make more informed decisions about credentials and their value.” They offer access to a centralized Credential Registry to house up-to-date information about credentials, a common description language to enable credential comparability, and the ability for the public (including our workforce) to search and retrieve information about credentials.
Now, students, their supervisors, hiring officials and others can see detailed information on credentials offered by DAU, along with 250,000 credentials offered by schools, professional associations, certification organizations, military, and others.
For example, a hiring official will not have to guess at what it means to have earned a Digital Engineering or Agile credential from DAU. Information on individual credentials will be available to the public in Credentials Engine.
