About this course

The CAPAC ’Deliver’ course examines the skills and techniques used within defence acquisition to turn strategic decisions into the delivery of military capability. By the end of the course, you will be able to understand the relationships and processes associated with the delivery of military capabilities within the Defence Operating Model.

The course is an interactive, online programme delivered by Cranfield University that brings together personnel employed in CAPAC management across the Defence Operating Model.

The course requires you to download and review pre-recorded lecture material from the Cranfield University Virtual Learning Environment each day and engage in live online seminars, tutorials and exercises hosted on Microsoft Teams to practise and consolidate skills and knowledge acquired.

The course is free to all UK military personnel and MOD civil servants.
