Vienna, VA – August 13, 2012— Leading Services Provider and Technology Integrator, MicroTech now has their latest innovative course offerings available at their University, headquartered in Tyson’s Corner. The trailblazing technology leaders’ newest selection of courses are listed on its website and are available on the General Services Administration (GSA) MOBIS Schedule.
MicroTech provides Technology Services, Network Systems Integration, Product Solutions, Cloud Computing, Unified Communications & Collaboration, Cyber Security, Mobility, and Social Media Solutions to commercial enterprises, along with the public sector — managing more than half-a-million tech users daily. A prime contractor of over 100 Federal projects and more-than-25 procurement vehicles, MicroTech offers access to 2500 vendors and a million tech products and services across the government.
MicroTech University, the company’s corporate learning entity, is supported by a highly experienced faculty, with over 15 years of conducting highly successful training and leader development experiences for a wide range of organizations. A partnership with Celemi, a leading training provider, with a powerful methodology The Power of Learning, brings a suite of experienced-based simulations that build competence with strategic thinking, business decisions and performance.
Six different business simulations, both ready-made and custom solutions, ensure the offerings recreate corporate organizational challenges and situations, engaging professionals in real life challenges to test skills and explore new concepts in a realistic, hands-on environment. This experiential learning approach, in essence learning by doing, follows best practices associated with adult learning models, laid forth by educational pioneer John Dewey, to which MicroTech continually expands on.
“Enlightened organizations understand that rate of change in technology and increasing globalization translate into a different approach for preparing their future leaders. This new approach recognizes that today’s adult learner requires a higher level of engagement and interaction,” said Jay Jacobson, US President, Celemi, Inc. “Additionally, leading edge companies recognize that interactive learning and simulations focus on the application of new skills; not merely learning about concepts and models. Moreover, simulations enable organizations to evaluate how a future leader will actually perform in a leadership role, test their ability to think and act strategically, and evaluate how well they build consensus among peers.”
Regarding the MicroTech – Celemi partnership that fosters professional growth, MicroTech’s CEO Tony Jimenez stated, “We launched MicroTech University because we have something unique to offer government and business professionals.” He added, “I am confident that this partnership with one of the industry’s most innovative training organizations, will meet a growing need for more hands on, experiential learning in the area of promoting increased business acumen at all organizational levels.”
