MetaMedia and Sigmatech Team to Win Contract with FAA

News Briefs IconGERMANTOWN, MD — October 20, 2010 MetaMedia Training International, Inc. and Sigmatech, Inc. have been awarded a contract with the Federal Aviation Administration to convert live seminars held for Designated Engineering Representatives (DERs) into on-demand eLearning programs using Blackboard Learn™. DERs assist the FAA in verifying that aviation products and systems manufactured for aircraft adhere to regulatory requirements. The online training will eventually supplant some of the seminars conducted at hotels and conference centers throughout the country, helping the FAA reduce costs while disseminating a highly consistent message.

“We are extremely excited about this opportunity to work with the FAA and look forward to providing them with top quality eLearning programs in keeping with our other current government clients, including the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, NASA, and the US Senate. This win is a prime example of how our innovative solutions stack up in the marketplace,” said MetaMedia Vice President of Program Development, Doug Stone.

This comprehensive and highly interactive solution will employ creative elements that will complement the instruction to engage the learners, reinforce the content, and illustrate complex processes. MetaMedia’s award-winning creative media staff and experienced instructional designers are experts at exploring treatments that can make eLearning come alive as though the learners were participating in the workshops.
