Government vs Private Contracting - Training

I am a commercial pilot with a Bachelors Degree in Aviation that decided not to fly, but rather work on the business/office side of aviation. Therefore, I tend to think like a pilot. In flying, when something changes, such as an avionics suite, you attend a "differences" training course. I bring this up because I am having a difficult time finding training that would meet my needs. I currently negotiate the sale of multi-million dollar executive jets and spend a majority of my time in the private sector. That said, a few times per year I am faced with responding to a government related RFP (be it in the USA or other nation). I am very comfortable dealing with corporations, high net worth individuals, etc, however I recognize that I lack experience when it comes to government contracting. Can anyone recommend a course, online or otherwise, that could help me further understand government related contracting? I've found courses/classes on Google, however it is hard to tell what would be valuable and what would be a waste of time & money. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Jon

Jon,

There are a few places to go to get (at least US based) government contracts training. Check out NCMAHQ or FedPubSeminars. Be advised both options do have cost involved. I know there are Universities as well (such as Villanova) that provide Government contracts training (again FAR/DFARS based). Hope this helps and don't hesitate to reach out.

Regards
Bryan

Hello Jon,

What type of program are interested in (e.g. short training, certification, degree)? And, are you interested in a particular market (e.g. US, EU, etc.) or broader training on government procurement practices in particular?

If you provide a little more information, I can point you in the right direction.

We could also set up a call and discuss if you'd like. Just shoot me a direct message if you're interested.
