Seminar #9405 Classroom
(Read reviews)

Reviewed and verified by the Federal Acquisition Institute (FAI) as meeting the training requirements for FAC-COR Level II.

Moving beyond the basics covered in COR Level I Training, this hands-on, interactive 5-day course builds on your experience, deepens your understanding of the acquisition process, and takes your skills and capabilities to the next level. It is taught by trainers who have worked as federal CORs and are experienced course leaders. You'll examine each acquisition award step in detail, learn advanced concepts, and fill in knowledge gaps. You will tackle complex issues with case studies on topics such as choosing the right buying process, dealing with contract modifications, and resolving problems with deliverables. You will discuss ethical issues and ways to avoid misconduct, and return to work ready to increase your involvement in more complicated acquisitions.

the training requirements for FAC-COR Level II.

AMA’s COR Training is open to civilian and military federal employees, as well as individuals working in state and local governments and for the private sector. Unlike other COR training, AMA has designed its courses using content relevant for individuals working outside of the DoD.

Required second tier of training for FAC-COR Certification for Contracting Officer’s Representatives.

Course materials, case studies, role plays, group experiences, and more will relate to the practices of civilian acquisition employees. Developed by instructional design professionals with guidance and review by a former federal Senior Procurement Executive (SPE) with deep experience in managing COR training and development, these courses are mapped to the current FAC-COR Technical Competencies and Performance Outcomes.

Government agencies that wish to purchase these courses may do so through our GSA Federal Acquisition Service Schedule - Mission Oriented Business Integrated Services (MOBIS) Contract No. GS-02F-0092R Sin 874-4: Training Services.

AMA Faculty-the AMA Advantage

AMA seminars are led by senior executives, managers, authors, educators, consultants, course developers. And even CEOs!

AMA is distinguished by the quality of its faculty-men and women who are not just skilled platform speakers but industry experts who have achieved success in the corporate world. They are top business practitioners who have been in the trenches-and who bring their distinctive insights, practical experience and illuminating personal anecdotes to every AMA seminar session they lead.

Each of our course leaders has been selected from a pool of top candidates, has undergone rigorous AMA training and is periodically evaluated by AMA practice leaders. All bring with them many years of expertise...plus fresh new ideas and perspectives.

Our seminar leaders add value to every course not only through their practical, action-oriented presentations-but also through the expert advice they offer and the opportunities throughout the seminar session for the one-on-one mentoring critical to effective learning.

The AMA faculty...is the AMA advantage!
