The Department of Army Continuous Learning Policies can be found at http://asc.army.mil/web/alt-workforce-policy-procedure/. The purpose of the policy is to ensure acquisition professionals develop and stay current in leadership and functional acquisition skills. Continuous Learning Points (CLPs) may be awarded for completion of acquisition academic courses, training courses, professional activities, or professional experience.
