DAU Equivalent training

New DAU Equivalency Certificate 

DAU Equivalent Training/DAWIA Certification The Defense Acquisition Workforce Improvement Act (DAWIA) required the Department of Defense (DoD) to establish a process through which members in the acquisition workforce would be recognized as having achieved professional status.

DAWIA certification establishes that an employee meets the education, training, and experience standards required for a certain level in any acquisition, technology, and logistics career field. DoD Contracting personnel are required to take mandatory courses offered by the Defense Acquisition University (DAU) or courses that have been reviewed and deemed equivalent by DAU.

The following list shows the courses NPI offers as DAU equivalent training for Levels I, II, and III. Contact us now for dates and current class locations.


 Check with your acquisition career manager (ACM) prior to enrollment to ensure you are taking the appropriate course.
