ARLINGTON, Va., Dec. 14, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- ASI Government (ASI), public-sector consultants specializing in performance management solutions, today announced that the firm's Training Institute has instructed its 10,000th federal government student.
"The fact that we can touch 10,000 government professionals in the classroom - while also providing valuable learning resources across government asynchronously via online learning - is a powerful mix, and one that is serving our clients well," said Steve Gluckman, president of ASI's Knowledge and Learning Products division. "At the rate we are now training government professionals, we will be crossing the 25,000 mark in short order."
The ASI Government Training Institute, established in November 2002, launched with the introduction of its cornerstone course, Seven Steps to Performance-Based Acquisition™. Today, the organization offers a catalogue of 12 classes and is continually evolving and growing its offerings. This year, ASI made significant investments in adapting its industry-leading courses to an e-learning platform, Applied Learning Online (ALO). ALO enables ASI's customers to access training when they need it, where they need it. This just-in-time learning provides targeted, focused knowledge that government professionals can readily and immediately apply to their jobs.
"I am enormously proud of this milestone," said Sarah Clarke, ASI's Learning manager. "For each student ASI has trained, we've provided the tools necessary to improve mission performance, enhance organizational effectiveness and drive strategic change. Each of these is essential to meeting our country's need for highly skilled acquisition, contracting and program/project management professionals."
Ms. Clarke added, "Professional education provided by the ASI Government Training Institute is unmatched. Our instructors truly are the best and the brightest – experts who have walked the walk and talked the talk. In designing our course offerings and staff, we draw from the highest ranks of government, industry and academia. Students can rest assured that they are learning from someone who has served on both sides of the federal contracting table and has unparalleled experience to share."
Active learning environments increase knowledge retention, reinforce new work habits and practices, engage employees in the growth and improvement of the organization, and encourage better performance. In addition to these benefits, ongoing training programs demonstrate an organizational commitment to continued growth and education. To date, ASI has trained more than 10,000 government professionals while earning unsurpassed marks for quality in student evaluations.
