4th Estate students sometimes ask: How do I register for training? The simplest answer is: Login to the Defense Acquisition Talent Management System (DATMS) https://www.atrrs.army.mil/DATMS, navigate to My Career | (DAU Training) Apply for Training, and follow the instructions.

Helpful Hint: Understanding whether your training will be resident or online is helpful. Since late September, 2018, all DAU online courses are housed in DAU’s new Learning Management System (LMS): Cornerstone on Demand, or CSOD. The new LMS replaced ATLAS.

  • If your training is an online offering, for example, ACQ 101, you will be redirected to the DAU site to complete the registration process within CSOD.
  • If your training is for a resident offering, for example, ACQ 203, the registration process will take place within DATMS.

The resources below provide additional guidance for common DATMS and CSOD-based tasks. If you have additional questions, please contact us at 4thEstateDACM@dau.edu
