During one of the greatest recessions in US history, APSi develops one of the first federally funded workforce development programs that focused on Fiber Optic Certification, Employment Skills Development, Innovative Curriculum Design, Community Outreach, and Career Coaching Services to help get Americans back to work. This Workforce Development Program--along with other professional development courses changed the lives of over 600 students nationwide helping at-risk youth, military vets, and dislocated workers find sustainable employment in a high demand markets.
While experiencing success as a leader in workfore solutions, APSi began to pivot the business toward consulting/project management utilizing the certified students from its training programs to fill in the skills gap in call centers, telecom, IT, construction and wireless projects.
