AFMC has developed the Logistics Professional Development Program, an overarching platform which currently encompasses three logistics certification program stalls: Professional Maintenance Certification Program, Professional Supply Management Certification Program, and the Professional Deployment, Distribution, Transportation Certification Program.

The voluntary programs were designed for the civilian logistics workforce looking to enhance their professional credentials. Military personnel can apply if they meet the certification requirements.

The upcoming application open season provides an opportunity for all eligible maintenance, supply and DDT personnel to submit an application package for consideration.

During the last open season, 218 certificates were awarded across the three certification programs.

For your awareness, official DCPDS codes have been secured for Levels 1 through 5 for each of the certification programs, and employees can use MyBiz+ to document certification in their personnel records.

A request for MilPDS certification codes is in the works and codes could be available soon.

The Professional Life Cycle Logistics Certification Program IPT kicked-off in December. The team has defined the certification requirements and began a prototype test run of the program April 1. Fifty-nine personnel have volunteered to participate.
Teams are ready to launch the next combined application open season for PMxCP, PSMCP and PDDTCP. 

Kick-off begins May 2 and runs through July 1.

General Schedule and Federal Wage System personnel within the AFMC Depot Maintenance community, Acquisition Demonstration personnel at AFTC working in Maintenance, personnel working in Supply (retail and wholesale), and the Deployment/Distri-bution/Transportation communities - including the Logistics Readiness Squadrons, may submit application packages for certification at Level 1 up to Level 5.

Again, military personnel may apply if they meet the program certification requirements - training, minimum years of workforce category experience, academic and developmental education, supervisory experience and other workforce category experience where applicable.

Applicants are required to provide the proper documentation to validate their eligibility. General guidance on each program and the application process can be accessed at the LPDP SharePoint site:

All application packages will be vetted through the local PMxCP, PSMCP or PDDTCP point-of-contact. Local points of contact will ensure program communications are released to the workforce, to include advertising internal suspense dates commensurate with the open season period, and will notify the workforce of any plans to conduct orientation/training events. 

Please direct all program and application process questions to the appropriate local POC listed below:
