***This is an online Virtual Instructor-Led Training (VILT) course.***

This course is restricted to DoD government civilian and military students only.

This Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) course provides students with an opportunity to apply the concepts and methodologies needed to develop operating and support (O&S) cost estimates. Students build an operating and support cost estimate for a fictional operating system. Students construct an operating and support cost estimate to demonstrate their understanding of how system technical characteristics, operating concepts, and support concepts may influence cost estimates across the O&S Cost Estimating Structure (CES). Emphasis is placed on the data, analyses, formulas, and calculations as applicable to DoD systems across the O&S phase.
