This highly engaging blended learning course is designed to foster critical thinking via instructor facilitated discussions, small groups sessions, and shared experiences. Students will be placed in a mock program office environment where they will use current acquisition programs to research, analyze and evaluate program financial data in order to develop briefings for senior leadership to make programmatic decisions.

This dynamic course will require hands on application and strategic analysis during small group collaboration sessions while making ethical cost effective, performance, quantity and schedule trade-offs, and managing risk to achieve programmatic milestones.

This eight day course will be delivered via two different learning modes, 4 days Virtual Instructor-Led Training (VILT) and 4 days classroom Instructor-Led Training (ILT).

Prior to registering for this course, individuals attending this course must have a minimum of 6 years of acquisition financial experience within an acquisition major program office, PEO, or Service/Component/Headquarters equivalent level in order to actively participate in class discussions and group exercises. Students will be required to pull from professional experience when called on, and share their perspective on various topics as part of the final grade.
