Your Continuous Learning Points (CLP) deadline is fast approaching!

Are your CLPs up to date? Acquisition workforce (AWF) professionals holding a FAC-C, FAC-COR, or FAC-P/PM certification have until April 30, 2024, to obtain the required CLPs to maintain their current certifications.

The AWF provides a vital role in an evolving acquisition ecosystem. As such, they must maintain a current knowledge base, develop critical thinking abilities, and be aware of innovations and leading-edge technologies to achieve successful acquisition outcomes. CL activities remain essential to lifelong learning for the AWF, and the VA Acquisition Academy is here to meet your training needs!

Don’t delay! See the latest VAAA Course Schedule, or view VAAA’s Course Catalog and sign up now! Log into FAI CSOD to view your progress on your Continuous Learning Individual Progress dashboard and to sign up for training.

To learn more about the requirements, visit the FAI website and read Acquisition Flash 2024-1 (PDF, 2 pages), released by the Office of Federal Procurement Policy (OFPP) on October 19, 2023.

Emerging Technologies

VAAA is committed to implementing new and emerging methods and technologies to modernize training and business solutions that advance learning outcomes. The Academy develops and delivers adaptive learning courses to support this commitment. Adaptive learning is the delivery of custom learning experiences using artificial intelligence to address the unique needs of an individual through just-in-time feedback, pathways, and resources. Adaptive learning makes virtual learning easier, faster, and more engaging through tailored learning experiences. Currently, the Academy offers FAC 101 (link) as an adaptive learning course. More adaptive learning courses are in development and will be prepared for delivery soon.
