Are you delinquent in obtaining your certification? Do you need a course to obtain your current position certification? Are you certified but want to take courses for career enhancement or to fulfill your continuous learning requirements?
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, the Defense Acquisition University (DAU) FY15 course schedule is now available and it’s time to register for a seat. View the DAU iCatalog for available courses and any required prerequisite(s) requirements. You should plan with your supervisor and ensure coverage from your time away from the office and adequate time to complete prerequisite training. This extra step will posture you for timely completion of certification requirements and afford you a seat in the class.
Apply immediately to your most cost effective location (“C” icon next to the class location) and offerings with available seats. Before you apply for a course, it is imperative you update your student profile in ATRRS Internet Training Application System (AITAS).
Planning and applying early will increase your chances in obtaining a reservation in the requested class. Encourage your supervisor to approve your training request as soon as you submit. Supervisors must approve the training request in AITAS for receipt of your application by the U.S. Army Acquisition Support Center, Army Director of Acquisition Career Management registration office. Once you receive a reservation, mark your calendar to avoid a last minute cancellation.
