FAI is responsible for the implementation and support of the Federal Acquisition Certification (FAC) programs. The foundation of each program is a set of competencies and performance outcomes. These represent the knowledge, skills and abilities an acquisition professional must demonstrate either through learning or job environment in order to become certified.
Because some or all of a program’s competencies are associated with training, FAI has a responsibility, when requested, to review a training provider’s courseware to verify the training provider’s courseware reflects the content and behaviors described in the assigned competencies and performance outcomes. This review is called the FAI Verification Program.
Below is a downloadable FAI Verification Program and Instructions for training providers interested in having their courseware FAI Verified. Also below are downloadable copies of blank documents to be used in the verification process.
- FAI Verification Program
- FAI Verification Request Instructions
- FAI Verification Review Questionnaire

For questions about the FAI Verification Process, below are the Program Executives for each of the program areas with their contact information.
Below are names and contact information for businesses and organizations that perform reviews of training provider courseware. These courseware reviews are used by FAI to ensure a training provider’s courseware reflects and conveys content and behaviors identified by the FAI career field area’s competencies, performance outcomes, or learning objectives, if applicable.
Businesses and organizations interested in performing courseware reviews of training provider products should read the FAI Verification Program Instruction first to ensure they understand the FAI program.
