Since this change to the new framework, can I expect less time in the classroom and more on-the-job type of training?



Yes. All of the Functional Areas have reduced the amount of Defense Acquisition University (DAU) training required for certification. Additionally, DAU now offers more online and Virtual Instructor Led Training and less resident/classroom training. A positive change is that individuals now have opportunities for more Just-In-Time training and less classroom and virtual training that is not deemed “core” across the functional area. Individuals need to work closely with supervisors to determine what specialty training or credentials they need for their job.
