Designed for senior DoD acquisition personnel, the Advanced Test and Evaluation (T&E) course is focused around leadership and management issues in a T&E environment. TST 303 involves facilitated discussion of current DoD policies, strategies, processes, and practices as they are applied and used for the planning and management of test and evaluation (T&E) for DoD systems. This course covers a variety of knowledge-building and interactive problem-solving skills using case studies developed around lessons learned from actual system acquisitions. Class discussion and study group efforts culminate in participant presentations based around case analysis and solution analysis. Knowledge and skills developed in this course will facilitate successful professional participation as a T&E member in integrated planning and development activities for major programs.
