February 25, 2009 Business Wire
HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. -- Bio-Clean International, Inc. (Pink Sheets:BCLE) announced today that the Company's affiliated entity, Veterans Training Corporation, a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB), has entered into a Teaming Agreement with Government Training Institute (GTI) (www.gtitraining.org).
Government Training Institute (GTI) was founded in 2003 to address the needs of state and local law enforcement agencies throughout the United States with research based training. GTI's 30 plus courses contain a cooperative curriculum base and ongoing research from the staff with 400 years of operational military and law enforcement experience. GTI has trained personnel or departments from the approximately 25 Federal agencies, including the United States Secret Service, Department of Homeland Security, ATF, as well as many states, cities, and county agencies. GTI's new "Center of Excellence" is located in Denmark, South Carolina and is situated on 44 acres, which includes 22 acres of wooded ground attached to the primary training facility. GTI's 196,000 sq. ft. Denmark complex includes administrative offices, classrooms, indoor simulation area for close quarter battle, video fire arms simulator, and much more. Approximately 17 miles from the center of excellence is GTI's Special Operations Training Facility, a 300,000 square foot nuclear fuel reprocessing station on over 100 acres that GTI has converted into a Homeland Security training center. Chad Harbaugh, President of GTI said, "Entering into this Teaming Agreement with Veterans Training Corporation, a certified SDVOSB, gives GTI the opportunity to provide on-line training courses, that makes it ideal for expanding our curriculum delivery, and ensures room for expanded attendees."
Over the past ten years, Veterans Training Corporation (VTC), a certified Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Business (SDVOSB), has provided a wide range of training programs for a variety of clients including the U.S. Department of Defense as well as the private sector. Its training programs have included OSHA safety-training, training programs for the construction industry and specialized training for civilian and military requirements. John P. Finn, Vice President of Bio-Clean International and COO of VTC, said, "By April 2009, VTC will be providing GTI approximately 30 new on-line courses, sponsored by Homeland Security, to train law enforcement agencies to respond to terrorist attacks. By July of this year, we expect to offer approximately 75 on-line courses. During the last quarter 2009, we are projecting approximately 100 new on-line students each month, with enrollments consistently growing. This should provide a substantial increase to our overall revenues."
