FE302 Replaces FE301. At the request of the Facilities Engineering Functional Process Action Team (FIPT), the FE301 course is replaced by the updated course called FE302. FE302 follows the core competencies mandated by the FIPT. There are 9 offerings planned for FY16. See the DAU course catalog for details. Those students who have completed FE301 and are DAWIA Level III certified are not required to attend FE302 to maintain certification. There are 6 on-line (distance learning) precourse lessons, The classroom session includes 6 lessons with an option for students to select from 7 additional topics.
The benefit to students is an updated version of the Advanced Facilities Engineering Course with updated lessons on selected FE competencies.

Facilities Engineering Career Field Expansion:
On July 1, 2009, LTG Van Antwerp, the Commander of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), issued the guidance for assimilation of Army civilian positions into the Facilities Engineering (FE) Career Field. The message provided his guidance to establish consistency in the Army’s identification of positions that support USACE.. The message also directed the Army and the USACE to complete the assimilation of FE positions by 21 November 2009. FE Career Field "members" occupying those positions will have 24 months to complete the certification requirements.
The assimilation as many as 9,000 FE positions may have a significant impact on the Defense Acquisition University (DAU) due to increased throughput of students taking FE 201 and FE 301. FE 201 is a DL course, the effects will be minor. FE 301, a one-week resident course, will have a surge requirement for approximately 2 years. John McElhenny, LCIC, is developing options on how to best meet this training requirement.
This is the second major expansion of the Facilities Engineering Career Field.

Commanders and Senior Leaders...
As you may know, the DoD has launched the Facilities Engineering Career Field. The Army and Corps are required to complete the assimilation by 21 November 2009. FE Career Field "members" will then have 24 months to complete the certification requirements.
This message provides my guidance to establish consistency in our identification of positions that support USACE FE missions and the FE assimilation.
There are three levels of certification requirements and associated training; Level 1 requires completion of ACQ 101 online course, Level II requires completion of FE 201 online course, and Level III requires 40 hours of classroom training. Once the appropriate certification is achieved, there is a requirement for continuous training. Details of the FE Career Field requirements, Occupational Series affected, training, and the process to complete assimilation have been provided to your FE representatives from our USACE FE program manager, Bunnatine Greenhouse.
Implementation guidance for assimilation is as follows:
Level III positions
Positions of Division Chiefs or equivalent and higher at the district and division levels. HQ positions that satisfy the FE definition shall be determined by the functional chief.
Level II positions
Positions of Section Chiefs and Branch Chiefs or equivalent at the district and division levels. HQ positions that satisfy FE definition shall be determined by the functional chief.
Level I positions
There are no Level I positions designated at this time.
Personnel not assigned to a FE position are encouraged to take the Level I training, however this is not a requirement.
Certification status will not be used as a factor for selection for FE positions. If a person is selected to a FE position, 24 months is allowed to complete the training requirements.
Should you have questions, please contact either your FE POC or Ms Greenhouse. Also, James Dalton is the DOD FE Career Field Functional Leader and available to assist.
