​ACQ 380 (International Acquisition Management) is DAU's Level III Int'l Acquisition Career Path (IACP) course. DoD acquisition workforce members receive a DAU Certification of Successful Completion of IACP Level III Training upon graduation from ACQ 380. ACQ 380 graduates to date have enjoyed this participative, practical exercise/case study-based course and rated it very highly.
Unfortunately, the planned ACQ 380 offering at the end of February 2019 at Fort Belvoir, VA had to be cancelled due to "low fill" (not enough students).  Please consider signing up for the May 2019 offering of ACQ 380 today.

DSMC-International conducted an Int'l Acquisition & Exportability (IA&E) Lunch & Learn at DAU Fort Belvoir on August 15, 2018 from 1230 - 1400.  This presentation and discussion focused on the key planning considerations in acquisition programs to ensure acquisition workforce members are prepared and can take advantage of "going international" to improve acquisition outcomes for U.S. and allied/friendly nation warfighters.  See "What's New" to obtain an electronic copy of this IA&E Lunch & Learn presentation.
