Each concept card provides information about the credential and also offers the opportunity to apply for participation in the program.

FAI and other Federal agencies have the capability to support these credentials. They can provide the required vILT course through an equivalent provider recognized by DAU. Federal AWF members who are interested in obtaining a credential that necessitates a DAU VILT course should opt for the FAI or Federal Provider session within the FAI CSOD platform during the registration process.

**Note** While DAU course registration might be an option, it is contingent on the DoD's training priority system. Federal AWF members do not receive any priority in this regard.
