Greensboro, NC – October 28, 2009  The U.S. General Services Administration has awarded a five-year Federal Supply Schedule Contract to The Brooks Group to provide training services and support products for government agencies.

The Brooks Group has provided training to both the Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve for a combined 13 years in the area of military recruitment and retention training.  Prior to partnering with The Brooks Group, these military services had a history of struggling to meet their recruitment goals.  After partnering with The Brooks Group and implementing a customized recruitment training model, both of these organizations have consistently met or surpassed their recruitment goals.  This is a significant achievement considering the unique challenges they face during a wartime environment.

The success of the training The Brooks Group has provided for the ANG and Air Force Reserve has been recognized by the American Business Awards with both armed services receiving Stevie® Awards for Hiring and Recruiting Program of the Year.

Kevin Reinert, Vice President of Operations and military recruiting training expert, expressed what this certification means for The Brooks Group.  “Being awarded this certification allows The Brooks Group to take the customized recruitment training we have developed to other government agencies and provide the same level of excellent service and partnership we have experienced with the Air National Guard and the Air Force Reserve.”

This certification provides federal employees with a government approved provider of training services and support products, allowing these agencies to streamline their sourcing and selection process of training services, while leveraging the buying power of the federal government and acquiring the best value for taxpayers and federal customers.
