HERNDON, Va., June 24, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Learning Tree International announced a new partnership with APMG International to offer the federal government the first ever marketed course and certification in Technology Business Management (TBM). The course written by Learning Tree deals with the practical implementation of TBM requirements and the integration of a TBM framework into the organization. In addition, the course content is in line with the OMB mandate, which is to be implemented by the beginning of the financial year 20221.
