We are pleased to partner with Learning Tree to support our efforts to provide such training,” said Ken Allen, Executive Director of ACT-IAC. “This partnership is meant to provide training for the federal IT community that is relevant to our members’ needs, and include technical as well as management and leadership training."

"Effective training is an important aspect of professional development, and we are especially pleased to become a partner with the ACT-IAC Academy to provide relevant courses for government and industry members," said Richard A. Spires, CEO of Learning Tree International.
Mr. Spires recently testified before the Subcommittees on IT and on Government Operations of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform with recommendations to address the range of Federal IT Acquisition and is a co-author/instructor of the Program Management course, included in this initial offering.
