Paltech Presents Instructional Systems Division Capabilities at I/ITSEC 2010


Paltech sent a team of 12 employees to the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation, and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) in Orlando, Florida, November 29-December 2. The I/ITSEC annual conference attracts about 19,000 total registrants. About 50% of the registrants are from the government, with over 2,000 of the registrants from 61 countries.

The 2010 I/ITSEC theme was Training Centric – Readiness Focused. I/ITSEC promotes cooperation among the Armed Services, Industry, Academia, and various government agencies in pursuit of improved training and education programs, identification of common training issues, and development of multiservice programs.

The team went to demonstrate Paltech’s interactive multimedia instruction (IMI) products and capabilities, identify upcoming government training programs, and evaluate the competition and industry trends.
