  3. What Is An EIN and An FIN As It Relates To DAU Training?
Foreign National Account Creation

What is an EIN and an FIN as it relates to DAU Training?

EIN - Employee Identification Number (consisting of letters and numbers) used for students in lieu of a Social Security Number.  An EIN to complete DAU courses should not be confused with an EIN associated to DCPDS (Defense Civilian Personnel Data System). An EIN to complete DAU courses must exist in ATRRS (Army Training Requirements & Resource System).  

FIN - Foreign Identification Number used for students in lieu of a Social Security Number.

NOTE: NoN-DoD students will NOT have a FIN! NoN-DoD students are created an EIN to establish an account.

The FIN is associated to a user's DoD CAC.  When submitting the DAU SAAR, if the FIN associated to your DoD CAC is not found in ATRRS, you will be required to establish an EIN.
