DoD 8140 Information Assurance Certification Training

DoD directive Directive 8140 (replacement of 8570) and FISMA regulations require all personnel working with secure government networks to be certified in security measures. DoD Directive 8140 provides the basis for an enterprise-wide solution to train, qualify, and manage the DoD Information Assurance (IA) workforce. This policy requires Information Assurance technicians and managers to be trained and qualified to a DoD-approved baseline requirement.

The training, certification, and workforce management requirements of DoD 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.

An individual needs to obtain only one of the following "Approved Certifications" for his or her IA category or specialty and level to meet the minimum requirement. For more information on our DoD 8140 Information Assurance Certification Training Program, email:govt@productivitypointls.com

Approved Information Assurance (IA) Baseline Certifications

Information Assurance System Architects and Engineers (IASAE)

The above tables list DoD approved IA baseline certifications aligned to each category and level of the IA Workforce. Personnel performing IA functions must obtain one of the certifications required for their position, category/specialty and level to fulfill the IA baseline certification requirement. Most IA levels within a category or specialty have more than one approved certification and a certification may apply to more than one level.

An individual needs to obtain only one of the "approved certifications" for his or her IA category or specialty and level to meet the minimum requirement. For example, an individual in an IAT Level II position could obtain any one of the four certifications listed in the IAT Level II cell.

Higher level IAT and IAM certifications satisfy 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 in the Level II or III cell. For example:

  • The A+ or Network+ certification qualify only for Technical Level I and cannot be used for Technical Level II positions.
  • 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.

Higher level CSSP and IASAE certifications do not satisfy lower level requirements
