    Notes
  • Pre-work required / Walk-ins NOT authorized
  • Eligible students should have completed PMT 401 within 18 months prior to attending PMT 402.
  • PMT 401 together with PMT 402 satisfies the statutory training required for program executive officers, deputy program executive officers, and program managers (PM)/deputy program managers (DPM) of ACAT I, IA, and II programs.
  • PMs and DPMs should attend this course prior to beginning their assignment.
  • Consistent with adult learning theory, the course construct presumes class members contribute by sharing their experiences and lessons learned. Moreover, class members’ pre-course research and assessment of program challenges is the basis for individual Learning Plans. Their plan captures their selection of lessons and other training events such as faculty one-on-ones. Interactions with senior OSD and industry guests offer varied perspectives on the acquisition process; moreover, these interactions facilitate early +stakeholder engagement for newly assigned program leaders. Toward the end of the course, class members apply their learning to create an Action Plan they’ll implement to address their program needs.
