Advanced Acquisition Program (AAP) (Curriculum 211)

The Advanced Acquisition Program (AAP) is a 12-month, part-time, non-resident, distance learning graduate certificate program that can also earn graduate credit toward NPS master’s degree programs. The Advanced Acquisition Program provides a flexible, on-site alternative for education and Defense Acquisition.

The AAP is a three-phased graduate certificate program of seven courses delivered over four NPS academic quarters. While the three phases must be completed in sequence, there is no requirement to complete them in the normal one-year time frame (four academic quarters). AAP is a graduate-level program of in-depth acquisition and program management education, earning successful students 19.5 graduate credit hours towards a master’s degree. It also provides DoD students with up to 195 hours of Continuous Learning under the USD (AT&L) Continuous Learning Program (CLP), 31.5 Continuing Education Units (CEU), 6.33 Business Credits toward the requirement for 24 for the GS-1102 series. The combined courses are equivalent to Defense Acquisition University’s ACQ101, ACQ201, PMT250 and PMT352.
