Registration information may be found by clicking here. The course spans a two-week period, August 7 – 18, 2017.
By attending the FAR Fundamentals course, students learn the federal government’s policies and procedures for acquisition planning, source selection, and contract administration. Students work through realistic, scenario-based problems by identifying the relevant regulations, guidance, provisions and clauses that govern the federal contracting process.
The FCN 190 – FAR Fundamentals course was created in response to changes in the government’s professional development standards for federal contracting officials. An OMB Memo on the Federal Acquisition Certification in Contracting Program establishes what’s known as the FAC-C (Refresh) program. The effective date of the FAC-C (Refresh) was October 1, 2014. Details of the training standards established under the FAC-C (Refresh) program can be seen by clicking here.
FAI has verified that the FCN 190 – FAR Fundamentals course offered by The Contracting Education Academy at Georgia Tech meets the requirements for delivery of the new FAC-C (Refresh) Level I certification requirements. Georgia Tech is also an approved Defense Acquisition University (DAU) equivalency provider, offering DAU-equivalent training that satisfies both FAC-C and DAWIA certification programs
