Before you can use DTS, you may need to:

Obtaining a DTS account and PKI certificate typically occurs as part of the in-process activities for people that are new to a site.

Obtain a PKI Certificate

A Common Access Card (CAC) is used to log into DTS and sign travel documents. To get a certificate, contact your Local Registration Authority or DEERS/RAPIDS Verification Officer for CAC cards.
