The USTTI Welcomes Brian McCloskey
In October 2006, USTTI welcomed Brian McCloskey back in a new role as Curriculum Director. Brian formally served as a Curriculum Coordinator for the USTTI from September 2002 to December 2004, and is well known to hundreds of USTTI graduates who attended training during his first professional tour of duty with the USTTI. Prior to his new role at the USTTI, Brian was Program Manager for the Software and Information Industry Association (SIIA). Brian looks forward to reconnecting and working with participants, sponsors, alumni, and other USTTI supporters.
The USTTI is nearing the completion of another very successful training year, having completed 80 of our 86 training courses. We want to thank all of our volunteer trainers and congratulate all of our 2006 graduates. To date the USTTI has trained 314 scholars, giving us a grand total of 7,282 graduates from 165 nations in our 24 years! The USTTI’s 2007 course catalog and annual report should be on our Website in early December, so check soon for next year’s exciting course offerings.
