NCMA Tysons is pleased to offer our Contract Lifecycle Series beginning September 20, 2016. The 25 course Contract Lifecycle Series covers the entire contract lifecycle while incorporating lessons on the Business Systems in this series. Courses will include Contract Management tools and techniques and provide the knowledge necessary to obtain a professional certificate.

Participants will gain knowledge that is directly applicable to their career in Government Contracting and for each course completed; students earn a certificate for either 2 or 4 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) points (Business Systems Courses are 4 hours) they can use to assist them in obtaining or re-certifying for NCMA’s Certified Commercial Contract Manager (CCCM), Certified Federal Contract Manager (CFCM), Certified Professional Contract Manager (CPCM) or other industry association credentials.

The courses will be hosted by LMI, located at 7940 Jones Branch Drive
