HANSCOM AIR FORCE BASE, Mass. – The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center is hosting a Focus Week Oct. 23-27.

Focus Week is a quarterly opportunity for personnel to complete mandatory and discretionary leadership and acquisition training, along with the potential to earn continuous learning points.

Over 135 courses will be offered this session and include topics in both technical and soft skill areas. Most courses are delivered by AFLCMC experts who provide direct knowledge of current systems and programs. 

“The vast majority of the Focus Week courses are now being held online and are open to the entire AFLCMC workforce,” said Jason Sibrel, AFLCMC Focus Week program manager. “We want to make it as easy as possible for people to complete their continuous learning requirements.”

A myriad of class offerings are available for acquisition professionals this quarter including Personnel Security, Spectrum Management, and Strategy Planning Seminar, among others.

During Intel Support to Acquisitions, instructors will provide students with a better understanding of the intelligence community and how it supports the AFLCMC acquisition mission. This course is divided into three functional areas: intelligence fundamentals, acquisition intelligence fundamentals, and an introduction to intelligence costing. Intel Support to Acquisitions is designed for AFLCMC program office personnel and worth three continuous learning points.

There are also a variety of contracting classes being offered such as Air Force Contracting Central. The SAF/AQCP and AFCC Knowledge Management team will provide a live demo on how to use AFCC as a central hub to research acquisition topics, gather contracting tools and templates, and connect with subject matter experts. 

For those who want to learn more about the Air National Guard, there will be a virtual offering to help you learn more about its history, authorities, missions, and more.

A Leading Hybrid Teams course is intended to better equip employees with tools to help communicate and excel in a hybrid or virtual team environment.

Sibrel recommends registering for Focus Week offerings as early as possible.

Attendance is open to military, civilian, and contractor personnel. Contractors must request approval from their Government POC to ensure participation is in accordance with the training requirements outlined in their contract prior to enrolling in Focus Week courses.

The full list of courses and detailed registration instructions are found in the course catalog which can be accessed by visiting the Focus Week homepage.

The next AFLCMC Focus Week will be held Jan. 22-26, 2024.
