CBP Continues nationwide training ecosystem deployment.
Bloomington, IN— Envisage Technologies announced that Customs and Border Protection (CBP), an agency within the Department of Homeland Security, awarded the company a 2-year, task order to continue deployment of the Acadis® Readiness Suite to additional locations across the US.
CBP is utilizing the Acadis Readiness Suite to meet its rigorous training management requirements and modernize key aspects of its high-liability law enforcement training operations. Acadis has been deployed at CBP training facilities in Glynco, GA, Harper’s Ferry, WV, Charleston, SC, El Paso, TX, Front Royal, VA, St. Augustine, FL, as well as field offices across the United States.
“When it comes to training, CBP is by far one of the most forward thinking Federal Agencies,” said Ari Vidali, Envisage chief executive officer. “They have made significant headway in reducing waste, optimizing academy operations, and standardizing their approach to high-liability training. They have won several awards for their approach, including being nominated for the Federal Law Enforcement Training Accreditation (FLETA) Best Practice award two years in a row. We are honored to be assisting them with their important mission.”
