About the course

The FAC-P/PM IT Core-Plus specialization program addresses the specialized knowledge and abilities unique to IT project areas. You will focus on technical performance outcomes and satisfy competencies related to IT Infrastructure & Architectural Design. Learn these skills and techniques through robust content, Federal examples, and hands-on exercises.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the principles, concepts, and methods of enterprise architecture to align IT strategy, plans, and systems with the mission, goals, structure, and processes of the organization
  • Employ architectural methodologies in the design and development of information systems, including the physical structure of a system’s internal operations and interactions with other systems
  • Describe the architecture and typology of software, hardware, and networks, including LANS, WANS, and telecommunications systems, their components and associated protocols and standards, and how they operate and integrate with one another and with associated controlling software
  • Apply methods and procedures to protect information systems and data by ensuring their availability, authentication, confidentiality, and integrity
  • Demonstrate methods to select tools and procedures, including development of information security plans, to prevent information systems vulnerabilities and provide or restore security of information systems and network services
  • Implement principles, methods, and tools for evaluating information systems security features against a set of specified security requirements, which includes developing certification and accreditation plans and procedures, documenting deficiencies, reporting corrective actions, and recommending changes to improve the security of information systems
  • Determine the principles and methods for planning or managing the implementation, update, or integration of information systems components
  • Establish procedures to ensure production or delivery of products and services, including tools and mechanisms for distributing new or enhanced software
