As our website also reminds defense acquisition workforce members, “DAU's 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).” Encourage you to check out all nine of these robust new professional development opportunities!
