FAM is the Initial Skills Training course for military and civilian acquisition professionals. This course provides a foundational understanding for basic project management skills and an overview of Air Force/DoD acquisition. FAM is an interactive course where students immediately apply what they have learned and develop program documents such as: project schedule, cost estimates, and a program budget. Students will work in teams to build an acquisition strategy that incorporates risk management, a technical approach, a contract strategy, and a product support strategy. FAM covers a breadth of material such as critical thinking, negotiations, emotional intelligence and non-traditional methods/strategies such as: mid-tier section 804 acquisition, other transaction agreements, and agile software development.
