SCM-E (SCM-311)
Security Cooperation Management USG Executive and U.S. Defense Industry Course
5 Days

Objective

The Executive United States Government (USG) and Defense Industry Course (SCM-E (311)) is designed to meet the dual educational requirements of senior-level USG personnel involved in security cooperation and senior-level U.S. defense industry personnel involved in international sales. The DoDD 5132.03 defines Security Cooperation (SC) as those activities undertaken by DoD to encourage and enable international partners to work with the U.S. to achieve strategic objectives. It includes all DoD interactions with foreign defense and security establishments, including all DoD-administered Security Assistance (SA) programs, that build defense and security relationships that promote specific US security interests to include all international armaments cooperation activities. The purpose of this course is to provide an enhanced understanding of roles and responsibilities of USG SC and SA related organizations and the legal and procedural policies that direct the execution of SC and SA programs. The goal of the course is to provide the student with the appropriate SC management methodologies in order to continually improve organizational effectiveness and efficiency.

This course meets International Program Security (IPS) training requirements of DoD Directive 5230.20.

Course Description

SCM-E curriculum encompasses a broad range of SC and SA related topics as described in the course syllabus below. The course is intended for U.S. personnel who now occupy (or have been selected to occupy) executive Security Cooperation management positions within the Department of Defense (DoD). It is also intended for defense industry personnel who are currently occupying positions in international sales or related positions in financial management, international logistics, operations, or customer support. Persons in related positions in other federal agencies, such as the Department of State (DoS), may also attend this course.

Continuous Learning Points

Graduates of this course may use the hours associated as Continuous Learning Points (CLPs, CEPs, etc.) for various professional development programs. Specific hours, by course, are listed at Continuous Learning Points.

International Affairs Certification Program (IACP)

Commandant's Message

I'm hoping that you've not had issues finding us! As you can tell by our new website -- The Defense Institute of Security Assistance Management (DISAM) transitioned to the Defense Institute of Security Cooperation Studies (DISCS). This became effective 1 July 2016, and comes as DSCA more closely aligns the schoolhouse, its curriculum, and its mission priorities with DOD strategic guidance, and DSCA's vision for the future. The name change reflects DSCA's focus on full spectrum capability building and that the schoolhouse's mandate for training the workforce has expanded beyond Security Assistance to include all of Security Cooperation.

There are a number of transitional issues in progress and we will work with various constituencies and other supporting organizations to be as seamless as possible in our support to you. As you can see, the Institute’s website has a new URL of www.iscs.dsca.mil. In terms of you contacting DISCS, please note that "Group e-mail addresses" (such as the Registrar’s Office) will change as soon as we can work through the IT wickets, but old group email addresses should work after the change for some time. All email addresses and phone numbers for institute personnel remain the same as they were prior to changing our name to the Defense Institute of Security Cooperation Studies. Note that there have been no changes to course designations or names of the courses offered by the Institute.

This is an exciting time for the Defense Institute of Security Cooperation Studies and we looking forward to continuing our long-standing service to the security cooperation workforce for years to come as we keep pace with the environment impacting all of you as our constituents.

Sincerely,

Dr. Ron Reynolds
Commandant
