A mobile training team (MTT) from the Defense Security Cooperation University’s (DSCU) School of Security Cooperation Studies (SSCS) traveled to Brasov, Romania, July 7-23, 2023, to facilitate international partner foreign military sales (FMS) training. Personnel from the Romania General Directorate for Armaments, Integrated Defense Planning Directorate, Land Forces, Air Forces and Special Operations Command participated in the two-week class that focused on whole-of-government approach to Security Cooperation and the FMS process.

The MTT led more than 30 students through the International Partner Security Cooperation Logistics and Finance course, in which the curriculum spans the full spectrum of Security Cooperation, including legislation & policy, technology transfer/end-use monitoring, FMS, acquisition, logistics, and financial management. Romania is a key Partner Nation with a large portfolio of FMS Cases.

As the second SSCS MTT to travel to Romania in two years, the goal of these trainings is to strengthen the relationships with a key Partner Nation. These engagements entail tailored education, training, and institutional capacity building.

DSCU supports DSCA’s FMS 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 10 business days.
