International Partner Security Cooperation Executive

SC Workforce Certification Level



This course provides an overview of SC, addressing legislation, policy, and procedures; planning, programming, and budgeting; resource management; technology transfer and export controls; SC process; acquisition and contract administration; and sustainment - all within the context of a security cooperation relationship with the U.S.


The overarching objective of the international curriculum is to help our security cooperation partners manage and implement the U.S. SC program in support of their nation’s defense.

Target Attendees

Senior military and civilian officials responsible for management of SC programs with the United States Department of Defense, including those funded by U.S. grants. In addition to personnel in defense ministries, services headquarters, and procurement bureaus, this may include international liaison personnel assigned to U.S. organizations in CONUS, as well as defense attachés and foreign procurement officials assigned to Washington, D.C.


No specific courses are required prior to taking this course. However, students should possess an English Comprehension Level (ECL) of 80 or above. For classes taught at Wright-Patterson AFB or Washington D.C., a score lower than 80 requires a waiver. In-country Mobile Training Teams (MTTs) can be taught using country-provided interpreters.
