DSAM Course Schedule

Class Size

Plan ahead! The class is limited to 42 students, and registrations are accepted on a first paid, first enrolled basis.


This intense 4-1/2 day seminar presents current government acquisition programs and requirements and, through guided student interaction and team exercises, applies them to the realities of industry operations. In order for you to gain maximum benefit from this course and for others to gain from various perspectives and experience, all students are expected to fully participate in all scheduled course activities. Therefore all travel arrangements should be made so that students are present until the course ends at 12:00 noon on Friday. Absences up to 2 hours may be granted with prior approval from the NDIA POC/DAU Instructors. Course completion certificates will not be provided to students missing more than 2 hours of the course.
