A mobile training team (MTT) from the Defense Security Cooperation University’s (DSCU) School of Security Cooperation Studies (SSCS) recently traveled to Vilnius, Lithuania to conduct a two-week international partner whole-of-government Security Cooperation and foreign military sales (FMS) training with Lithuanian Ministry of Defense (MoD) and Lithuanian Military Departments personnel.
Specifically, the MTT led DSCU’s International Partner Security Cooperation Logistics and Finance course. The course’s curriculum spans the full spectrum of Security Cooperation, including legislation & policy, technology transfer/end-use monitoring, FMS, acquisition, logistics, and financial management.
The class included members of the Lithuanian Ministry of Defense (MoD) and Lithuanian Military Departments. Twenty-five students graduated from the class.
DSCU strengthens relationships with partner nations by working hand-in-hand to provide education, training, and tailored institutional capacity building. DSCU supports DSCA’s Foreign Military Sales programs through holistic solutions that develop and support advancing responsible governance and the intellectual interoperability and synergistic ties between the U.S. and our allies and partners.
Founded in 1976, as the Defense Institute of Security Assistance Management (DISAM), SSCS is the focal point of Foreign Military Sales education for all Department of Defense personnel and international partner personnel engaged in managing Security Cooperation programs. MTT seminars/trainings typically involve up to 80 hours of training plus time for administrative functions and are usually completed over the course of ten business days.
