Level I and II acquisition certification now automated

As of August 2013 the acquisition certification system will review personnel records daily to determine if an individual meets Level I or II acquisition certification standards. If a personnel record shows that an individual meets all required standards, he or she will automatically be granted certification without having to request it.

For now, Level III certifications still require an individual to go through the current process of applying, getting a supervisor recommendation, and then having an Acquisition Professional Development Program manager review and approve.

Upon certification, an individual will receive an e-mail notification. He or she can then log into ACQ Now for APDP Certification and print a certificate. Career fields in which the certification is sent to the supervisor to be presented will continue this process. For those in career fields that have chosen not to present certifications, individuals will be able to log into ACQ Now for APDP and print a certificate.

Please note that it takes approximately four to six weeks for earned certifications to be pushed into the Defense Civilian Personnel Data System or the Military Personnel Data System and reflect on an Acquisition Career Management System record.

It is important to understand that an automated certification will only be received†if a personnel record shows an individual meets all standards. Because of this, it is imperative for individuals to take ownership of their personnel records to ensure accuracy. Acquisition records can be reviewed via AFPC secure in the ACMS application. Individuals are also encouraged to use the certification tool to do a periodic check of any outstanding requirements needed for certification. The tool allows individuals to scrub records against the certification standards of any acquisition functional area, and will alert the individual of any outstanding education, experience and training requirements.

Problems with acquisition records, such as missing training classes, acquisition experience or education, or additional information, should be worked through the individual’s supervisor and an APDP representative.

A list of available APDP representatives can be found via the Air Force Portal and within the ‘Acquisition’ functional area. From there, click on ‘Career/APDP’ and then on ‘Career Points of Contact.’
