Training for FAC-CORs via Distance Learning

Contracting Officer's Representative (COR) training is what we provide and is available for the FAC-COR program at Levels I, II and III by distance learning. We also provide elective courses at prices that are affordable (see our courses tab) and meet the required COR competencies by FAI. The bulk of our training provided to federal employees is by Distance Learning.  We also provide onside training only when requested.  The CEO says, "Repeatedly, federal customers tell us that our training is more flexible, affordable, and easier to understand than the DAU online courses!  It goes without saying that TAI thoroughly thought through the process so students learn better, at their own pace, and training doesn't interfere with their job duties. Just check out our student critiques say (student critique tab), and ask yourself what course you'd want to take. We offer COR courses, but for those needing electives for FAC-C and P/PM we do offer several electives." Our student course critiques speak for themselves." 

Our Distance Learning is flexible and easy for individuals and groups to complete.  We offer discounts to groups.
Employees who have a difficult time fitting in-class training into their busy schedules love our courses and are able to complete training no matter where they are located.
With tight budgets and sequestration, agencies should consider having employees take our courses via online distance learning.   GROUP DISCOUNTS available:

Groups of  (5-10)  Employees-get 20% OFF the per person price
Groups of (11-25) Employees-get 25% OFF the per person price
Groups of (26-35) Employees-get 30% OFF the per person price
Groups of (31-45) Employees-get 35% OFF the per person price
Groups of (45 + )  Employees-get 45% OFF the per person price

EXAMPLE OF GROUP DISTANCE LEARNING CLASS PRICING
:
COR Level I Basic 8 CLP class is normally $299 pp, if an agency signs up just 5 employees, you would receive 20% OFF the $299 price, pay only (5 x $240)= $1200 (by Purchase Card)!  A savings of $295!

EXAMPLES OF INDIVIDUAL COURSE SAVINGS: Our COR Level I Basic 8 CLP class is $299 pp, while the same 8 hour course onsite at Graduate School USA (formerly USDA GradSchool costs $545 and Management Concepts charges $560. Our COR Level II Basic 40 CLP class is only $595, while MCI and ESI-Int'l charge over $1850 plus and more for the same course! The difference is students do the course via correspondence instead of sitting in a classroom, but they still get student to teach support!

Our courses meet all FAC-COR learning competencies and are FAI compliant with required learning objectives and course criteria. Read more about our process at the "Distance Learning tab" above and check out our course critique above.  We understand training requirements are in addition to an employee's regular duties, and this is the reason we developed our flexible distance learning program that gives employees thirty (30) calendar days to complete the COR Basic or Refresher course requirements for certification. Course Continuous Learning Points (CLPs) are counted towards certification or re-certification and are accepted into the FAITAS Continuous Learning Module. The Office of Federal Procurement policy only requires students to obtain CLP credits to meet their required FAC-COR Level I  II & III program needs from any commercial provider. FAI does not certify vendors except for the FAC-P/PM program.  Continuous Learning Points (CLP) credit can be obtained using Distance Learning (E-Learning) per OFPP policy.
 
Bureau of Land Management (BLM) employees work mostly at the COR Level II 
status 95% of all BLM employees should take and re-qualify for the COR Level II status by either taking the COR Level II Basic course (if their status has lapsed) or COR Level II Refresher 40 course if they need to renew their certificate. If you are a BLM employee question what you should be taking before you sign up by tasking your CO or ACM--most likely it is the 40 hour course.

Who Our Students are: The majority of our students come from Departments and agencies that work in areas outside of Washington, D.C., like USDA, Forest Service, National Park Service, Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, Bureau of Prisons, Bureau of Indian Affairs, Indian Health Service, U.S. Marshals Service and others serving in remote areas or simply can't find the time to "just sit around" for a solid week in a classroom, and don't have travel money to go to an off-site location. Yet, many employees also in the Washington, D.C. metro area and the rest of the country take our courses because we are by far the lowest priced COR distance learning courses available. Read what students say under "Student Critiques" or call our references for past performance.
