The training, certification and workforce management requirements of 8570.01-M Directive 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.

Technical (IAT) Level certifications are cumulative. Higher level certifications qualify for lower level requirements. Certifications listed in Level II or III cells can be used to qualify for Level I. However, Level I certifications cannot be used for Level II or III unless the certification is also listed for the higher level.

The System Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP) certification qualifies for both Technical Level I and Technical Level II. If the individual holding this certification moved from an IAT Level I to an IAT Level II position, he or she would not have to take a new certification.

For more details about the Directive and its requirements see DoD 8570 FAQs.

To view requirements specifically for Information Assurance Management (IAM) personnel see Training Classes for IAM.
