Simplilearn has received a potential five-year contract from the General Services Administration to offer professional certification training courses to U.S. government employees.
The company said Tuesday it aims to help customer agencies train personnel in big data and analytics, artificial intelligence, project management, digital marketing, cybersecurity and cloud computing through GSA’s IT 70 Schedule.
Krishna Kumar, founder and CEO of Simplilearn, said the contract provides the company an opportunity to help federal workers hone their skills in various digital disciplines.
The training provider’s courses consist of online self-paced lessons and instructor-led virtual classes.
Government agencies and employees can procure Simplilearn courses using the GSA SmartPay card through the agency’s Advantage or eBuy portals.
