Learning Tree Adds New IT Certification To Its Award-Winning Federal Acquisition Project Management Training

RESTON, Va., October 14, 2015
Learning Tree (OTCQX: LTRE) has introduced a new, custom-designed FAC-P/PM certification curriculum to provide program and project managers in the U.S. Government with the necessary skills to manage IT-specific investments: FAC-P/PM-IT.

“The ability to successfully deliver projects and even major programs is the hallmark of a well-managed and capable IT organization. Now Learning Tree offers a complete set of courses to provide federal employees the skills to plan, execute, and deliver IT projects and programs,” stated Richard A. Spires, former Chief Information Officer (CIO) of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and newly appointed Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at Learning Tree.

Learning Tree’s FAC-P/PM-IT1 curriculum is the first certification program verified by the Federal Acquisition Institute (FAI) to provide U.S. Government program and project management professionals all of the competencies required for the acquisition of IT investments. It fulfills the 15 Technical and 18 Core-Plus Performance Outcomes required by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to achieve certification.

Considering the recently passed Federal Information Technology Acquisition Reform Act (FITARA), CIOs, IT personnel and acquisition professionals must effectively work within a transparent environment, and employ improved risk management disciplines on all IT investments.

"The Federal Government has increasingly recognized the importance of having the right skills, processes, and accountabilities to successfully complete their major IT initiatives,” said Brian Green, Learning Tree Senior Vice President of Sales & Solution Development. "As the leading IT training provider to the Federal Government, we are proud to offer the first FAC-P/PM-IT certification program verified by the FAI to enhance the skills of U.S. Government personnel and optimize the cost and performance of their most critical programs — helping them deliver projects in-scope, on-time, and on-budget.”
