CERTIFICATION INFORMATION: By Congressional Mandate (NDAA FY2007, Section 801), all DoD military & civilian personnel with generating requirements generation responsibilities for Major Defense Acquisition Programs (MDAPs) MUST be certified. DoD uses four levels of RM Certification: Level A, B, C, and D. The below diagram summarizes the relationship between RM Certification levels and the associated required training, along with a brief description of the effort typically associated with each RM Certification level (note: this may vary between Services):

Graphic - Current RMCT, 10 Dec 2019.png

LEVEL A:  Contribute to the Requirements generation and capability development in various capacities to include: Stating user's needs, analysis, subject matter/domain expertise, staffing and coordinating documents, administrative support.

LEVEL B:  Write requirements and requirements documents; fill specific capacities to include lead study elements, adjudicate comments, and facilitate document development and coordination across organizations.

LEVEL C: Support the creation/staffing/validation of requirements documents; train others on "Big A" acquisition topics; represent Services/Agencies/CCMDs in requirements, acquisition, or resourcing forums; support presentations at FCBs, Service-level Requirements Councils, and other forums and venues.

LEVEL D: GO/FO/SES ONLY: Validate/approve documents; providing senior leadership and oversight of JCIDS analysis and staffing; enforce Requiremenst standards and accountability.

TRAINING: DAU provides required Core Training for each RMCT level, and Core Plus training for specific requirements tasks, shown in the table below. Use 'click' or 'control-click' on Course Number for course details. You can also view courses and schedules in the DAU icatalog.

1Personnel have varying degrees of responsibility and training needs within the requirements process. Each DOD Component (Military Service, Combatant Command, and Defense Agency) determines what is required for RM certification. However, completion of DAU core certification course(s) provide the common baseline and must be accomplished prior to certification.  DOD Components can mandate additional requirements courses and/or training to meet individual Component needs.
