Federal Agencies Really Can Train COTRs and Save Taxpayer Funds With The Acquisition Institute Inc.'s New Flexible Advanced COTR Training

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - Jun 20, 2011) - The Acquisition Institute is hosting an entirely new type of training in its upcoming course called "Advanced COTR Workshop," to be held 22-26 August, 2011 in the Washington, DC Metro area. This course was specifically designed for COTRs needing flexibility to replace expiring credits. This new workshop is to be taught at the Northern Virginia Training Center campus in Falls Church on 22 through 26 August. This course will now enable government employees the maximum flexibility to take 1, 2, 3 or more days, and receive exactly the CLP course credits they need to recertify, and agencies can pay only for what is needed by each employee. The course is totally different that other courses in that employees can earn what they need in one setting all week long. Although this course was created about a year ago by TAI for the FAA, we feel this process will work well for other agencies too. With our new "flexible" workshop COTRs can take 1 Day (8 CLP) for $299 on 22 August, all the way up to our 5 Day (40 CLP) course for $899 on 22-26 August.

"With this type of course flexibility everyone wins. Taxpayers save money, agencies save, and agencies can get more of their people trained up for a lot less money," said Robert Knauer, CEO of TAI. "Some agencies can save up to $1000 per employee when taking the full 40 hour course. There are many providers that offer only a two-day comprehensive COTR Refresher course for $895. Why do that when you can get more for less? The recommended audience for this new course consists of: COTR and COR personnel in need of CLP renewal credits, program managers, program analysts, and administrative personnel along with industry contractor employees who can also learn about the proper interface on government contracts with COTRs and earn CLP credits. Anyone who wants to attend can pay online at (through our Shopping Cart). The Acquisition Institute will also accept group bookings of 3 or more personnel, by simply forwarding us a Government SF-182 Group training order to our corporate address: TAI Inc., 356 Rhapsody Path, The Villages, FL 32162.
