Schedules News & Training
As a busy acquisition workforce professional, you need best-value solutions that save time, and leave more budget for your agency’s mission. Take advantage of our Schedules training. It provides an interactive learning experience, integrating web 2.0 and social media technology.
Our training offers continuous learning points (CLPs) that may count toward your contracting certification and continuing education. You’ll learn how to effectively use the Schedules program to meet your requirements, use our tools to enhance competition, achieve small business utilization, procure sustainable acquisitions and much more.

Training for Continuous Learning Points
In the new registration system, Continuous Learning Points (CLPs) can be posted to your account in the Federal Acquisition Institute Training Application System (FAITAS).
Since class credit will be listed in your official training history in FAITAS, certificates are no longer issued. Additionally, the process of ensuring that only those who took the training actually receive the CLP(s) takes approximately 30 days, so best practice is to check your FAITAS account one month after course completion.
Industry and the General Public may participate by following instructions [PDF - 184KB].
