REQUIREMENTS MANAGEMENT (RM) CERTIFICATION, TRAINING & CONSULTING POCs
CERTIFICATION INFORMATION: By Congressional Mandate (NDAA FY2007, Section 801), all DoD military & civilian personnel responsible for identifying warfighter capabilities and generating requirements for Major Defense Acquisition Programs (MDAPs) MUST be certified. DAU provides the training while the Services and Agencies do the actual certification. As such, DoD uses four levels of RM Certification: Level A, B, C, and D as specified in the JCIDS Manual. The diagram below summarizes the relationship between RM certification levels, associated training, as well as a summary of the duties (NOTE: this varies between the Services and Agencies):
LEVEL A: Contribute to Requirements generation and capability development in various capacities to include: Stating users’ needs, analysis, subject matter or domain expertise, document staffing and coordination, administrative support.
LEVEL B: Write requirements and requirements documents; fill specific capacities to include: lead study elements, adjudicate comments, facilitate document development and coordination across organizations.
LEVEL C: Support the
creation and staffing of requirements documents; train others on “Big A” acquisition topics; represent Services, Agencies, or CCMDS in requirements, acquisition, or resourcing forums; support presentations at Service-level or Functional Capability Boards (FCBs); lead or coordinate activities focused on requirements generation and capability development, including but not limited to: writing and editing capability requirements documents, participate in requirements related IPTs, significant role in requirements related studies and analysis.
LEVEL D: Validate and approve JCIDS documents; provide senior leadership and oversight of JCIDS analysis and staffing; enforce capability requirements 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.

However, completion of DAU core certification courses provide the common baseline and must be accomplished prior to certification. DoD Components can mandate additional requirements courses and training to meet individual Component needs.
