CON 7310V Cost Analysis
 Description
Cost Analysis is one of two 5-day hybrid, virtual instructor led training (VILT) courses that make up the Proposal Analysis Credential. The first three days of this course are self-paced; with a workbook guiding the student through videos, readings, and exercises. Day four is instructor led; walking the student through individual and group activities to perform and apply their learning. Day five will challenge students to demonstrate their ability to perform cost analysis during a graded capstone exercise. Video assets and a simulation are major components of this course. Organizations with strict firewalls should consider encouraging students to use personal devices or access the course off VPN. It is also strongly recommended that students have two monitors to facilitate movement between screens during this course. Students will need to toggle between a contractor's proposal, a government cost model, the FAR, and the Student Workbook.
