Our work scope is broad; our standard is excellence.

OT Training Solutions | Literacy, Education, Training SolutionsWe began our journey in 2008 with a contract award for the Afghan National Army Literacy Program.

Soon after that initial success, OT Training Solutions competed and won a $62M multi-year IDIQ Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF) literacy education contract, where we manage in excess of 1,000 teachers and administrators, and train approximately 40,000 students each month. And we’re proud to say that more than 90 percent of the OT Training Solutions staff are veterans and retired military personnel.

Today, our broad scope of work ranges from education, to mentoring battalion and brigade staffs, to training elite infantry units in conflict zones, to providing field technicians, instructors, and operators for virtual training devices.

OT Training Solutions performs on a number of contracts and task orders, holding positions on PEO STRI and SeaPort-e IDIQ services contracts. Our current efforts can be found on our contracts page.

We are located in DeBary, Florida.
