Arc Aspicio Launches New Homeland Security Training Program
Arlington, Virginia, October 15, 2008 – Arc Aspicio launched its Homeland Security Mission Training program for new employees of the company. This unique training program provides an intensive curriculum that develops employees’ homeland security knowledge, so they can immediately help our clients achieve mission results.
“There are incredibly talented people out there – with skills in business architecture, organization change management, and technology – and they are looking for a way to make a difference in their career. This program gives our employees a way to bring their talent to help address the mission challenges of homeland security.”
—Rob O’Keefe, Chief Technology Officer
A mentor guides new employees as they go through a combination of formal training, self-study and research. They learn the policies, processes, systems, and best practices of mission areas such as border enforcement, immigration, transportation security, and emergency management.
Employees that participate in the program can apply the knowledge to projects at the Department of Homeland Security to achieve results quickly. Arc Aspicio currently supports ten DHS projects with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and the National Protection and Program Development (NPPD) Directorate.
The training curriculum involves a combination of self-study, interviews, research, formal training events, hearings on Capitol Hill, and special projects. It includes three major phases: an overview of the homeland security mission, immersion in two selected mission areas, and a published thought leadership white paper. The company tracks each employee’s progress and encourages company-wide collaboration to share information from training and ongoing projects.
Arc Aspicio is dedicated to an environment of continuous learning. In both 2007 and 2008, the Helios Apollo Award acknowledged Arc Aspicio for its commitment to employee development. The company looks forward to rewarding its first graduates in fall 2009.
