FAC-COR Level II Training

The FAC-COR Level II course is a highly engaging, interactive, instructor-led online class, held four hours per day for eight days.  The virtual course is designed to provide individuals with the knowledge and skills needed to properly execute the COR responsibilities such as acquisition planning, market research, and contract performance management.  These skills will ensure that the acquisition workforce continues its mission of providing a full range of innovative, cost-effective business solutions and responsive services tailored to meet the ongoing and emerging needs of our customers.  The 32-hour online course consists of several modes of instruction to include lecture, webinar, individual and group exercises and discussion, taking elements from both instructor-led and web-based training.  The training is centered on a toolkit for everyday use to support future COR tasks and responsibilities.  Participants will gain necessary knowledge, skills, and abilities to apply COR practices in real-world situations.  At the completion of the course, participants will possess a clear understanding of how to fulfill obligations as a level II COR, and will receive a certificate of completion which can be used, along with documentation of COR Level I training (or previous certification) and one year of COR experience to apply for COR Level II certification.

  • a dedicated phone line to participate in the conference call
  • an internet-connected computer that supports Adobe connect software
