FAR WEEK - STERLING
December 11-15, 2017 | Executive Conference & Training Center in Sterling (Dulles), VA

The Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) directly affects over $1 trillion in federal and state acquisitions each year. This critically important regulation is complex and continually changing. Join us in Sterling (Dulles), Virginia, for a week of intense FAR training.

The three courses offered during this FAR Week are 
designed to give you a solid, practical understanding of the Federal Acquisition Regulation, so that you can comply with the complex requirements and avoid pitfalls by anticipating and resolving potential problems. All courses will be taught by Steven N. Tomanelli, the foremost instructor in the field. 

Upon successful completion of all three courses, you will presented with an FPS FAR Certificate demonstrating your outstanding skill and competency and will serve as a valuable credential. Benefits of earning an FPS FAR Certificate are:

  • Gives you an advantage in the job market.
  • Gives you the tools to draw upon when needed. Deep knowledge and understanding of the FAR can provide a significant business advantage to those who understand how a particular FAR clause is likely to be interpreted in litigation.
  • Establishes you as a continuous learner.
