Updated DoD Product Support Manager Training Requirement

Updated DoD Product Support Manager Training Requirement

Bill Kobren
Following closely behind the recent deployment of the newly updated DoD Product Support Manager Guidebook, the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Product Support late last week issued a new policy memorandum of interest to DoD Product Support Managers (PSM) entitled “DoD Product Support Manager Mandatory Training Requirement”. This new memorandum, dated June 2, 2022, updates and supersedes an earlier 2019 memo outlining attendance requirements for the LOG 465/V Executive Product Support Manager's Course.

Also as an added bonus, we’ve not only posted a copy of this new memo to our PSM Reference Repository, but we’ve also updated a number of the related PSM resources on the DAU Logistics Community of Practice (LOG CoP) site as well. If you're not familiar with the site, this PSM Reference Repository may quite possibly be the most comprehensive information repository available for DoD Product Support Managers (PSM). The site contains a wealth of detailed –and easily discoverable -- information on PSM resources and references organized into nine key areas:
  • Background
  • PSM Related Statutes
  • PSM Policy
  • PSM Guidance
  • PSM Articles & GAO Reports
  • PSM LOG Blog Posts of Interest
  • PSM Awards
  • PSM Tools & Training
  • PSM Workshops

Finally, since we’re on the subject of DoD Product Support Managers, here are a few additional handy links to key PSM statutory and policy references that might be of interest to DoD life cycle logisticians and product support managers:
