DOI Announcement

A week ago, we announced a VA award to ICMC and The FERM Group for a five-year, $1M contract for coaching SES candidates preparing their Executive Core Qualifications.

On Apr 16th, we were invited by the Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) to help four of their candidates complete their ECQs!   We want to thank the VA for recommending us and BSEE for giving us the opportunity to assist them.
