The Air Force Materiel Command has unveiled a new course that seeks to equip students with knowledge and expertise in procurement efforts.

Students will be given an opportunity to visit AFMC facilities and evaluate acquisition strategies and weapons through the Advanced Acquisition Course, the U.S. Air Force said Tuesday.

Additionally, the students will audit the Air Force Weapons School's acacemic blocks to validate how they will complement a materiel-focused curriculum.

“Auditing Core I and II will allow our students to get a quick introduction to most of the communities out there, and allow them to start thinking about how their individual experiences and expertise can integrate into the Weapons School itself and with operating communities," said Col. Steve Smith, Advanced Acquisition Course commandant at AFMC.

The course will also feature visits to Capitol Hill, Air Force Rapid Capability Office and AFWERX.
