Beginning in February 2012, Georgia Tech is offering a series of professional education courses that allow you to better manage both your time and your budget.
Featured, for the first time anywhere, is CON 090-Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Fundamentals, packaged in four modules.
Georgia Tech’s Contracting Education Academy has split-up what is normally offered as a four-week Defense Acquisition University course into four, one-week classes. That means you now have multiple opportunities to complete the entire class throughout the year without the challenge of being away from your job for a month straight.
In CON 090, the Federal Acquisition Regulation — also known as “the Bible” of federal acquisition — is broken down into bite-sized pieces, making all the detail more digestible.
Plus, if you register for all four modules of CON 090 at one time, you’ll receive a discount of $300. (Please contact Info@ContractingAcademy.gatech.edu or call 855-812-5309 for details on this discount.)
Other courses featured in 2012 are the three-day CON 260B-Small Business Programs and CON 120-Mission Focused Contracting. See http://www.pe.gatech.edu/Subjects/Acquisition-Government-Contracting for details on all courses, including cost and registration.
During 2011, contracting officials and contractors alike attended these two courses. Both “sides of the table” gained new insights into the government acquisition process.
The 2012 course calendar can be viewed at http://contractingacademy.gatech.edu/training. Courses are expected to be added throughout the year. Coming soon, for instance, are COR 206-Contracting Officer Representatives in the Contingency Contracting Environment and COR 222-Contracting Officer’s Representative Course.
