New CLCL 013 DAU PHS&T Credential Is Now Available!

New CLCL 013 DAU PHS&T Credential Is Now Available!

Bill Kobren
Your DAU colleagues are pleased to announce the deployment today of the 15th and final credential in the originally planned series of multi-disciplinary, Integrated Product Support (IPS) Element-based Life Cycle Logistics credentials. Entitled “CLCL 013 Packaging, Handling, Storage & Transportation (PHS&T) Credential”, this newest defense acquisition credential is now available for student registration!

This new PHS&T credential brings together 7 on-line training (OLT) courses and supporting resources to offer a comprehensive overview of DoD packaging, handling, storage and transportation performance and management. It is designed to provide learners an overarching understanding of the life cycle logistician’s responsibilities for ensuring PHS&T requirements are integrated into the system design and the supporting infrastructure is in place to protect and preserve military material during delivery, storage, and transportation to the user. The PHS&T Credential provides both a technical foundation for the proper performance of PHS&T and a management perspective to effectively engage and oversee the numerous stakeholders involved in PHS&T activities. A summative examination must be completed to demonstrate learning. The target audience includes defense acquisition workforce personnel from all functional areas, including life cycle logistics, engineering & technical management, business/financial management, cost estimating, contracting, test & evaluation and program management.

In addition to recently established requirements for two new product support-focused credentials on Digital Product Support and Supply Chain Resilience planned for FY23 development, this brings to 15 the number of IPS Element-based life cycle logistics credentials available for workforce members to avail themselves of, including:
