Examples of Past Performance
ASTA’s past performance spans the life of our company, which was founded in 2007. In that time, we have conducted research studies, performance analyses, best practices analyses, cost benefit analyses, and total training system analyses. In doing these, we have followed the detailed instructional system development (ISD) process and other government processes similarly based off of it. Additionally, we have also designed and developed hundreds of hours of training and educational content, instruction, materials, on-line learning, and virtual reality experiences. We have supported organizations to achieve their goals and objectives through on-site support, and assisted their initiatives to through studies and analysis, training and education materials, new courses, and curriculum. A majority of our personnel include retired military. Also, 96% of our personnel are degreed, many of whom hold advanced degrees. As individuals together, we bring hundreds of years experience with the Department of Defense, other Government agencies, and industry.
The ASTA Group has the experience to meet your needs.
