the CES training opportunities t into the civilian career path.
e FY14 schedule of Defense Acquisition University (DAU)
courses has been available for student registration since May
16. Students may apply using the Army Training Require-
ments and Resources Internet Training Application System
(AITAS) at https://atrrs.army.mil/channels/aitas/. Planning
and applying early will a ord students a better opportunity to
obtain a class in the time frame requested.
Encourage your supervisor to approve your training request as
soon as you apply. at approval is necessary in AITAS before
the training request can be processed. View the DAU iCatalog
at http://icatalog.dau.mil to ensure that prerequisite(s) are met
before applying to a DAU course. A weekly low- ll listing is
posted weekly on DAU's website. Low- ll classes are available
on a rst-come, rst-ser ved basis within 60 days from the start
date of the class for students in Priority 2, and within 40 days
for Priority 3-5 students. Even if a class is on the low- ll list,
students must choose a cost-e ective location for their training.
e Army Registrar's o ce cannot process applications until
the supervisor has approved the employee's request for train-
ing. It is also imperative that the student and supervisor's
email addresses are correct on the AITAS student pro le.
For more information on DAU training, including system-
atic instructions, training priority de nitions and frequently
asked questions, please visit USA ASC's DAU Web page at
defense-acquisition-university-training/. Once you have
received a con rmed reservation in the requested class, ensure
that you attend the class as scheduled. Cancellation requests for
a con rmed reser vation must be submitted at least 30 calendar
days before the class starts or by the reser vation cuto date,
whichever is earlier, to avoid a no-show.
For FY14, we anticipate a 30 percent cut in DAU travel funds.
At this time, USAASC will fund only Priority 1 (required
training) travel to cost-e ective locations. Depending on fund-
ing, we may also elect to centrally fund Priority 2 travel to
cost-e ective locations. All requests, including submission of
the travel worksheet (for students approved for DAU funding),
should be completed no later than 15 days before the start date
of the course. Students may start their travel order as early as 60
days before the start date.
Requirements for DAWIA certi cation still exist; the fur-
lough did not a ect the deadlines. (For example, six furlough
days would not extend your grace period by six days. How-
ever, in the event of furloughs related to a partial government
shutdown, the O ce of the DACM would issue guidance
should grace periods be extended.) Workforce members and
their supervisors should plan their training and ensure that
they have adequate time to complete prerequisite training
before attending the follow-on course. Reservations for fol-
low-on training will be canceled if prerequisite requirements
have not been met 30 days before the start date of the follow-
FY14 certification changes: DOD acquisition, technology
and logistics career eld certi cation standards are imple-
mented on Oct. 1 of each scal year. See Figure 2 on Page
182 for the FY14 changes. For career elds not listed in the
table, there are no approved changes to date. To view the most
current career eld certi cation standards for your acquisition
position, go to DAU's iCatalog at http://icatalog.dau.mil.
