Welcome to the Defense Acquisition Academy
Thank you for your interest in the Defense Acquisition Academy (DAA), presented by Sinclair Community College Workforce Development. We are a Certified Equivalent Provider of Defense Acquisition University (DAU) courses. All DAA course offerings are certified by the American Council on Education (ACE) or Curriculum & Training Solutions (CTS). Both organizations are approved by DAU to reflect the training requirements for Defense Acquisition Workforce Improvement Act (DAWIA) Level I Certifications.*
DAA provides acquisition and contracting training on regulations and best practices to contracting and technical personnel from the Department of Defense (DoD) and other federal agencies. Government contractors and individuals interested in pursuing acquisition careers also benefit from our courses as they are designed and taught from the DoD perspective and are useful in understanding the regulations and language used in the federal acquisition system. Certified acquisition personnel are not only sought after by the DoD, but are also critical in non-defense agencies such as the U.S. Departments of Energy, Homeland Security, U.S. and Ohio Department of Transportation, etc. In addition, certified personnel are desired by private companies who do business with the government. Successful completion of this training will familiarize you with terminology and processes used in these agencies and companies, and may increase your viability as a candidate for employment in such roles.
