Acquisition Training Available for COR & PM Personnel

Contracting Officer Representative (COR) training for those in the FAC-COR Level I, II and III program and P/PM is available at low cost. The bulk of our training is accomplished by E-Learning (called Distance Learning), and we also perform onsite training at agency request.  In addition to our standard COR classes, we offer elective courses for those in the  FAC-C, COR and P/PM program. We permit both government and non-government (industry) personnel to take our courses to increase their professional knowledge.  We train COR for both DAWIA and FAC-COR certification. 

Our Distance Learning is flexible and easy for federal employees to complete that have a difficult time fitting training into their schedules no matter where you are located.   With tight budgets, agencies should consider having employees take our COR courses via online distance learning.  Our courses meet all FAC-COR and DAWIA certification competencies and we provide employees with all course materials electronically (including syllabus, exam, slides and case exercises, and access to instructors (call when needed).  Read more about our process at the "Distance Learning tab" above.  We understand training requirements are in addition to an employee's regular duties, and it is hard to fit training into busy schedules-and this is the reason TAI developed its flexible distance learning program that gives employees a full 30 calendar days to complete the COR Basic or Refresher course requirements for certification.  All courses and all employees get a full 30 calendar days to complete their courses. Now should an employee need more time-we can help!  Course CLPs are counted towards certification or re-certification and are accepted into the module known as the FAITAS Continuous Learning Module  in which employees and supervisors must be registered. The Office of Federal Procurement policy only requires students to obtain CLP credits to meet their required FAC-COR Level I, II & III program requirements  from any commercial provider available or by DAU/FAI. Remember non-government personnel take our classes to upgrade their resumes and job skills too. 

Continuous Learning Points (CLPs) can be obtained through many methods most common being online or Distance Learning Continuous Learning Courses and resident onsite training. More information regarding training is available through your agency Acquisition Career Manager or ACM.

Does your Agency want an onsite class? We can provide onsite classes at agency request. Once a firm date is established just send us your Group SF-182 for Group Onsite Training, and make sure you indicate "Fast Payment Authorized" in block C6

WHO OUR STUDENTS ARE:
The vast 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. DOJ 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. Don't believe it?  Read what our students say under "Student Critiques" or call our references for past performance.
