WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio – Defense Security Cooperation University’s School of Security Cooperation Studies recently taught an in-resident international partner foreign military sales training class for 17 students representing nine different countries and NATO.

DSCU’s School of Security Cooperation Studies is located at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.

SSCS’s International Partner Security Cooperation Logistics and Finance Course spans the full spectrum of security cooperation, including legislation and policy, technology transfer/end-use monitoring, the FMS process, acquisition, logistics and financial management.

The 15-day in-residence course involves a robust field studies program to expose students to American culture, as well as the inner workings of the U.S. government at federal, state and local levels. This class had an opportunity to engage with local officials in Beavercreek, including Mayor Don Adams.

DSCU strengthens relationships with partner nations by working together to provide education, training and tailored institutional-capacity building. The university supports Defense Security Cooperation Agency’s mission through holistic solutions that develop and advance responsible governance and the intellectual interoperability and synergistic ties between the U.S. and its allies and partners.

Founded in 1976 as the Defense Institute of Security Assistance Management, SSCS is the focal point of foreign military sales education for all Department of Defense and international partner personnel engaged in managing security cooperation programs.
