Army DACM Office Updates:

  • Don’t forget your CLPs—seriously, don’t! Just a few short months are left of the current AAW continuous learning two-year cycle, which runs Oct. 1, 2016 – Sept. 30, 2018. Keep the push on to hit all 80 CLPs by the end of the cycle. Be sure to review the Continuous Learning Policy for guidance on how to fulfill the continuous learning requirement and ensure that each opportunity is recorded in your Individual Development Plan to receive credit. And don’t forget that Engineering and Life Cycle Logistics acquisition career fields now have recommended training to complete those CLPs.
  • Coming soon! DAU is rolling out a new learning management system called Cornerstone on Demand (CSOD). CSOD will replace ATLAS, the current DAU virtual campus, and is slated to go live by Sept. 30. CSOD will improve student enrollment in DAU web training. Please visit the ATRRS/AITAS bulletin board for the changes.


Great News!

  • Congratulations to the 20 applicants accepted into the groundbreaking Systems Engineering Non-Resident Master’s Degree program at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California, for the 2019-2020 academic year (cohort 311-191).
