Defense Acquisitions University Equivalency Program

December 30, 1899


Defense Acquisitions University (DAU) Equivalency Program 

The Defense Acquisition University (DAU) provides the opportunity for organizations (colleges and universities, DoD schools, other federal agencies, commercial vendors, and professional societies) to offer courses, programs or certifications which are deemed and accepted as equivalent to one or more DAU courses.

ACE conducts the Equivalency Provider Application (EPA) and Equivalent Product reviews in accordance with agreed upon standards in DAU Directive 708.

Equivalent Provider Application (EPA)

For organizations interested in becoming DAU training providers, the first step is to complete and submit a signed MOU for DAU (Word) directly to DAU.

Once the two documents are received by DAU and DAU has created your Blackboard account, contact us and ACE will provide you with a work statement and cost proposal. Please refer to ACE's DAU Review Fee Schedule.

Equivalent Product Review

DAU equivalent training providers can submit courses or programs for DAU equivalency evaluation. The guidelines, the forms, and the process can be found on the DAU Equivalency Program Provider Resource Site.

Once an approved EPA and a signed MOU is on file, a DAU provider can submit a request for the review of training courses for DAU Equivalency.

Please refer to the instructions on the DAU Equivalency Provider web page for submitting courses.

For more information, please call 202-939-9494. When prompted, press 4.
