This online training is intended for Department of Defense officials responsible for managing and conducting End-Use Monitoring (EUM) activities.
The training modules contain presentations discussing the Golden Sentry program, to include: relevant laws requiring EUM of defense exports, end-user assurances requirements, post-delivery monitoring, re-transfer to third parties and demilitarization/disposal of defense articles, budget programing requirements and programmatic assessments to verify compliance with the EUM requirements.
This learning guide is presented as a video-narrated series, which should take approximately eleven hours to play.
