Accelerate the path to proficiency for new contract specialists with the Career Gateway: Acquisition program. Gateway Acquisition is DAU certified equivalent to CON 1100, 1200, 1300 and 1400 so participants meet all their FAC-C and DAWIA Contracting certification training requirements. Students in each cohort will learn the technical skills necessary to support an acquisition, such as contract formation, management principles, and regulatory fundamentals, along with the essential skills they’ll need to succeed in the modern acquisition landscape, like business acumen, critical thinking, decision-making, ethics, financial management, problem-solving, team building, communication, and collaboration. Through the use of experiential learning and a threaded storyline, cohort students will support the establishment of a settlement on Mars to mirror the challenges they’ll face in their roles. Students will be able to hone their skills in a safe learning environment, collaborate with other members of the cohort to solve problems, and sharpen their abilities to be key strategic business advisors for their agencies and organizations. Learners can expect to spend up to 10 hours per week on program activities and classes.
