This is a web-based course administered through AFIT Online.

This introductory e-learning course will provide students knowledge on how to successfully integrate T&E into the early phases (pre-Milestone B) of an Air Force acquisition program. The goal is to begin preparing Air Force acquisition/sustainment personnel who are assigned T&E responsibilities to be effective members of the Air Force acquisition team throughout a program’s life cycle starting with early involvement. Course Objectives: The course will provide students knowledge on topics such as the Analysis of Alternatives process and outcome, the concept of programmatic trade space in cost, schedule, and performance, how Air Force testers contribute to formulation of an acquisition strategy, and how to program T&E strategy that is consistent with the acquisition strategy. Students will be introduced to the role of an Air Force Integrated Test Team (ITT), how to identify the potential member organizations of an ITT, write an ITT Charter, and how the ITT relates to the overall program. Students will be introduced to concepts of evaluation criteria, data requirements, and test capabilities.
