San Francisco – April 17, 2018 – Digital economy skills training provider Simplilearn today announced that the company has been awarded a General Service Administration (GSA) contract for online training, to offer a range of professional certification courses to employees of federal agencies.
Granted the GSA IT 70 Schedule contract for a period of five years, Simplilearn now offers U.S. federal, state and local government agencies and employees the opportunity to purchase courses for workforce training at a significant discount. Simplilearn’s GSA schedule contract includes workforce training programs in digital technologies such as Big Data and Analytics, Data Science, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning, Project Management, Digital Marketing, Cyber Security, Cloud Computing, DevOps, Agile and Scrum, IT Service and Architecture, Salesforce[Ⓡ], Software Development and Quality Management.
“This GSA contract enables Simplilearn to help federal employees acquire skills in digital disciplines that can ultimately improve the capabilities and efficiency of government agencies.”, said Krishna Kumar, Founder & CEO, Simplilearn. “It is our honor to simplify the process of up-skilling federal, state and local government employees with the training they need to keep pace with advanced and emerging technologies such as AI, Big Data and Cloud Computing.”
All of Simplilearn’s courses are regularly updated by industry experts and are aligned to leading certification organizations. The content is available through a blend of online self-paced courses and instructor-led live virtual classroom training. Both agencies and government employees with the GSA SmartPay card can enjoy the benefits of Simplilearn courses at GSA-approved pricing directly through the GSA Advantage!® self-purchasing portal or even GSA’s eBuy electronic request for quote (RFQ) system.
GSA IT Schedule 70 is one of the largest government contract vehicles used by federal, state and local agencies to purchase technology products and services. The GSA Schedule simplifies the federal contracting process because terms and pricing are negotiated up front, enabling government employees to access products or services easily, shortening procurement cycles and saving costs without having to handle complex, individual contracting issues.
Simplilearn has been serving veterans and government agencies already by providing training programs in partnership with esteemed associations such as the The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes Corporate Fellowship Program, the National Military Family Association (NMFA), VETTED, and the Simplilearn Scholarship for Veterans.
