Ford specified a 10 year 100 or 150k service interval on the powershift DCT afaik, but that won't stop the dealer from trying to make extra money by changing the fluid at 30 k intervals.

Its like a manual transmission internally so I'd follow either ford's recomendations or those commonly used with other manual transmissions which generally don't require fluid changes as frequently as a normal torque converter and planetary automatic gearbox.
