Learning Tree International Awarded Pan-European Training Contract by NATO CIS Services Agency
LONDON and RESTON, VA (July 20, 2010) Learning Tree International (NASDAQ NGM: LTRE), a leading global training provider, announced that they have been awarded a contract by NATO CIS Services Agency (NCSA) for delivering Project Management, ITIL Certification, Technical, Management and Business Skills training to NATO staff throughout Europe. NATO selected Learning Tree International after a six month review process, evaluating providers on consistency, quality and cost effectiveness. Under the contract, Learning Tree International will provide commercial training services to an estimated one thousand delegates a year across NATO and NCSA bases in Europe. The training will be delivered through a mixture of on-site courses run at NATO and NCSA sites, local open enrolment courses and through Learning Tree International’s fully engaged, live online instructor-led training solution – Learning Tree AnyWare. Utilising AnyWare, NATO employees will connect to an actual classroom where they’ll participate online in a live, instructor-led training course being held at a NATO or Learning Tree International facility. AnyWare delegates join from wherever they are stationed, saving the time and expense of travel, and receiving the same training, with the same benefits as their in-class counterparts. AnyWare allows NATO staff from disparate bases and sectors to attend the same training course and fully interact with the instructor, their NATO colleagues and complete all of the course’s hands-on exercises. Richard Chappell, Managing Director, Learning Tree International UK, said, “We have been working with NATO for more than 10 years, giving us an unparalleled understanding of their environment and an appreciation of their need for flexible, timely and robust solutions. Learning Tree International is uniquely equipped to meet NATO’s training requirements thanks to our wealth of experience in delivering onsite training throughout Europe, our ability to host a European open enrolment schedule, and through the use of our live online instructor-led offering – Learning Tree AnyWare.” About Learning Tree International Learning Tree International is a leading global provider of highly effective, hands-on training to managers and information technology professionals.
