Falls Church, VA (PRWEB) December 07, 2011
This week MicroSystems Automation Group (MSAG) is completing a contract awarded in August from the Department of Labor to re-design the current 19 year old Transition Assistance Program (TAP) Employment Workshop. This is an interagency workshop coordinated by the departments of Labor, Defense and Veteran Affairs which helps prepare our exiting service members and their spouses for the transition from military service into a meaningful and successful career in the private and government sectors. Every year over 132,000 voluntary participants complete the program. On November 21, the President signed the VOW to Hire Hero’s Act, which will make attending this workshop mandatory for all exiting service members.
MSAG has re-designed and re-branded the program, now called the Department of Labor Employment Workshop, to incorporate a more interactive learning environment, with updated materials and current best practices taking full advantage of new technology and online opportunities that were not available when the workshop was originally created. The new workshop includes an improved method of evaluating goals and readiness, to create a more individualized course plan that will help participants become fully prepared to find new careers outside the military.
MSAG was chosen because of their expertise in curriculum development and their ability to deliver custom built solutions within extremely short timeframes. This program award holds significant meaning for the MicroSystems Automation Group, which is a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business that has been delivering Information Technology Solutions to federal government clients for over 20 years. They have special expertise in e-Learning environments and Full Software Development Life Cycle Application development. CEO Robert Reznikoff says he is “grateful for the opportunity to use the company’s expertise to give back to our service men and women in a way that will unquestionably ease their career transition and profoundly affect their future success.”
