Program Overview

The FAC Academy's 12-day, 4-course Commercial Acquisition Manager Program bridges the gap between PMI®-focused project management and Government-specific DAWIA- and FAC-P/PM-based requirements. It offers Industry managers a full-featured curriculum that addresses all ten Knowledge Areas of the PMBOK®, while incorporating the critical Government-specific concepts and terminology needed to successfully manage a Federal Acquisition program.

Industry graduates receive the same Master’s Certificate in Federal Acquisition Management as their Federal counterparts.
