CMS Training

All CMS users must complete AFPIMS training before they can login at the backend CMS URL. This training is now located in the DAU Learning Management System new LMS that replaced the old AFPIMS training at

DMA collaborated with the Defense Acquisition University (DAU) for the launch of our new Learning Management System (LMS). Online students will be able to complete the required CMS training and learn fundamentals including the legal and regulatory requirements of operating an official DOD public facing website. 

The migration of the WEB LMS is part of an overarching effort to align with major programs in the U.S. government. Previous WEB efforts supporting this realignment include moving website search to the GSA product and to moving analytics the GSA Digital Analytic Program. 

For the convenience of AFPIMS users, existing accounts have already been migrated to include previously completed training certificates. Users with an existing DAU account can get started immediately by visiting our new LMS. Users without an existing DAU account will need to submit a DAU SAAR form to obtain access to the LMS. A complete walkthrough for submitting a DAU SAAR is available in our DAU SAAR Task Aid (CAC Required).
