RQM 3100 Advanced Concepts and Skills for Requirements Management
This course prepares national security Requirements Managers to understand, critically review, and positively contribute to Requirements Management. Action-based scenarios, computer-based simulations, and critical-thinking exercises provide formative practical experience that reinforce discussions on how the Joint Capabilities Integration and Development System (JCIDS), or Service or Agency requirements systems, interacts with the Defense Acquisition System (DAS), and the Planning, Programming, Budgeting and Execution (PPBE) system. Students must come prepared to discuss a real-world requirements issue as it relates in their current work environment.
