An individual needs to obtain only one (1) of the “approved certifications” for his or her IA category or specialty and level to meet the minimum requirement.

Above listings are based on ONLC's class offerings.

The training, certification and workforce management requirements of Directive 8140 apply to all members of the DoD IA workforce including military, civilians, local nationals, Non-appropriated fund (NAF) personnel, and contractors. The requirements apply whether the duties are performed full-time, part-time, or as embedded duty.

Management (IAM) Level certifications corresponding to the position level do not cascade down. Each position requires the individual to meet one of the specific certifications associated with that Management Level. An IAM I must obtain a Level I certification (such as the Security+). The IAM I should not take the CISSP unless already qualified in one of the certifications listed in the IAM I box (e.g., Security +). However, if an individual already possesses an IAM II or III level certification prior to being assigned to an IAM I position, they may use that certification in lieu of the IAM I requirement.

To view requirements specifically for Information Assurance Technical (IAT) personnel see Training Classes for IAT.
