DAU Credentials - Building Skills You Can Use Today

Bill Kobren
As the DAU Credentialing program continues to gain momentum, wanted to let the life cycle logistics and product support community know that we’ve now deployed 15 credentials available for workforce registration:
  • CACQ 001 Services Acquisition for non-Acquisition Professional Team Members
  • CACQ 002 Services Acquisition for Acquisition Professional Team Members
  • CACQ 003 Agile DoD Team Member
  • CACQ 004 Introduction to Risk, Issue, and Opportunity Management Credential
  • CACQ 006 Acquisition Law & Policy
  • CACQ 008 Foundational Intellectual Property (IP) Credential
  • CCON 014 Foundational Contingency Contracting
  • CCON 015 Advanced Contingency Contracting
  • CCYB 001 Program Protection Credential
  • CCYB 002 Cybersecurity for Program Managers Credential
  • CENG 001 Digital Engineering for DoD Consumers
  • CENG 002 Data Analytics for DoD Acquisition Managers Credential
  • CLCL 003 Supply Chain Integration Credential
  • CLCL 009 Information Technology Life Cycle Support Credential
  • CSBP 001 Small Business Professional Credential

In addition to two more new contracting related credentials slated to deploy in the coming weeks (CCON 011 Construction Contracting and CCON 012 Architect-Engineering Contracting), we also have three new life cycle logistics and product support credentials in the final stages of development that are scheduled to deploy shortly as well (CLCL 001 Product Support Mgmt. Fundamentals, CLCL 005 Supportability & Design Interface, and CLCL 011 Product Support Affordability & Cost Fundamentals). These five will bring the total number of available logistics credentials to five, and the full DAU credential portfolio to twenty in short-order. Dozens more are in the pipeline and will be deploying in the coming months. For your situational awareness, I plan to continue to share regular updates via this DAU LOG Blog, so check-back often for the latest information. In the meantime, additional details are available on the DAU Credentials website and the DAU iCatalog Credentials site.

As we like to say, “DAU's new Credentials program can provide responsive and timely learning experiences that you can self-select, to grow and deepen your skills. By offering learning in smaller, more job-specific credentials, we aim to help DoD evolve beyond today’s 3-level certification framework and more effectively meet the intent with the Defense Acquisition Workforce Improvement Act (DAWIA).”
