by AFMC Public Affairs

The Air Force Institute of Technology offers a myriad of resources and options available to those needing acquisition Continuous Learning Points.

Course offerings are open to officers, enlisted, and civilians alike and are delivered through both live instruction and student-paced web formats.

One of AFIT’s most important classes for the Acquisition community is FAM 103 (Fundamentals of Acquisition Management).

FAM 103 has four graded measurements that include three multiple-choice tests and one three-week long group exercise. The course is a fulfillment for ACQ101 for those acquisition workforce members. FAM 103 is required (by SAF/AQHD) for all new 61BX, 61CX, 61DX, 62XX, and 63XX officers and cross-flow officers into these career fields.

The course is also required for all civilian 1101 PAQ interns that are new to weapon system acquisition. The course is offered on a space available basis and centrally funded to other military career fields and civilian job series that are acquisition coded. Students who complete the course will be awarded 114 Continuous Learning Points.

The first week of FAM 103 focuses on basic project management skills based on the Project Management Body of Knowledge from the Project Management Institute. The remainder of the course provides students an overview of the entire weapon system acquisition process using key DoD and Air Force level documents as well as Air Force specific processes and methodologies. The course also covers information on the various functional disciplines required to execute an acquisition program. The course also includes instruction on other topics such as teaming, communication, ethics, and the Acquisition Professional Development Program.

There are several seats available in each class offering listed below. Register now to secure a seat in this course and also earn 114 CLPs:

  • 12Q starts 9 July and ends 26 July – 12T starts 13 August and ends 30 August

AFIT also offers a variety of other Acquisition courses as well. Those needing a top-level overview of the challenges and initiatives impacting acquisition and logistics should consider registering for SYS 281, “Air Force Acquisition & Sustainment”. Those involved in the depot process should look at the new “Critical Chain Project Management Foundational Concepts” course (LOG 238) that provides a wealth of practical applications. The “Life Cycle Risk Management” (SYS 208) is another excellent course that helps students evaluate risk management in the work place.
