What is AKO? Army Knowledge Online

AKO—Army Knowledge Online—is an online service that provides information services to the U.S. Army. All service members of the U.S. Army can have access to AKO. This includes Active Duty, Reserves, Natural Guard, and even Army civilian workers. Pretty much everyone who is working for the U.S. Army has an AKO account to access Army web assets and tools.

AKO can also be used to access ATRRS (Army Training Requirements and Resources System) but there are better ways. Instead of accessing ATRRS with AKO, learn how to access it directly from here.

How to obtain AKO account?

First and foremost, everyone who is working for the U.S. Army can create an AKO account.

If you haven’t registered, follow the steps below.

  1. Go to us.army.mil
  2. Click on Create Account
  3. Enter your Social Security Number
    • If you don’t have a Social Security Number and if you’re a foreign officer or a local national, enter your Foreign Identification Number.
  4. Enter the following required information about yourself and fill in and create your password.

To log in AKO, follow the steps below.

  1. Go to us.army.mil
  2. Enter your AKO login and password.
  3. From there on, you can have access to ATRRS, AIPD, and ACCP.

If you’re hit with “No Client Certificate Presented” warning, this means the base computer isn’t registered. You cannot have access to U.S. Army web based services from a computer that isn’t registered. This is also shown to those who are trying to access AKO on their personal computers, not one that is issued by the U.S. Army.
