Advanced Management Achievement Course
CMI Level 8 Certificate in Strategic Direction and Leadership
A 3-week highly specialised programme designed for officers moving into management and executive careers.
The Advanced Management Achievement Course has a long and successful track record in helping officers make the transition from a military career to the business world on leaving the Armed Forces. It shares the language, concepts and practices of business which are often unfamiliar to our delegates.
During week one of this three-week course, an overview of the basic concepts within each subject area is shared. In the second week ideas are further developed and an understanding of their application to business discussed.
The third week focuses on the relevance of pre-course knowledge, and course learning within the business context is more fully realised. The application of ideas by business managers in management situations is explored.
The programme content is continuously updated. A range of sample topics are below:
Contemporary business issues
AMAC is a well-established and core part of our programmes at Alliance MBS. I’m proud that it has helped over 2500 delegates to make the transition from the military to the commercial world.

AMAC has an excellent reputation in Army circles. I arrived with high expectations and was not disappointed. The experience went beyond the classroom, giving me the mental and physical space required to focus on my next career.
All the delegates on AMAC have military careers, whether they are still serving or have recently left the forces.
AMAC is specifically designed to support the ranks of:
Royal Air Force
Marshall of the Royal Air Force
Air Chief Marshall
Admiral of the Fleet
Graduate entry officers with the rank of Captain, Flight Lieutenant or Lieutenant (RN) may also apply.
The knowledge I gained on AMAC gave me the confidence to develop and implement policies that will drive growth and deliver transformational change.
