Acquisition workforce members from across the 4th Estate often ask: "How do I register for training?"" The simplest answer is to log into the Defense Acquisition Talent Management System (DATMS) at https://www.atrrs.army.mil/DATMS, navigate to My Career | (DAU Training) Apply for Training, and follow the instructions.
Understanding whether your certification training is instructor-led (ILT) or virtual instructor-led training (VILT) -- both types of training which were universally referred to as "resident training" in previous years -- or online training is helpful prior to registration. All online DAU courses are now offered through DAU’s next-generation learning management system called Cornerstone On Demand (CSOD).
The resources below provide additional guidance for common DATMS and CSOD-based tasks. If you have additional questions on how to utilize the various functions within the DATMS system, please contact us at 4thEstateDACM@dau.edu
All DAU online training users must have a DAU profile.
Users can apply for online training, access their training, and view DAU transcripts on the CSOD home page.
Users who require DAU online training will need to register in CSOD. Users who login to DATMS first will be redirected to CSOD to complete the registration process.
All DATMS users should regularly review and update their profile, particularly to ensure their email and supervisor are correct.
Users who are not sure whether their training is resident or online can use this one-pager to clarify the type of training.
