Purpose

Simple Technology Solutions (STS) provides engineering solutions to the federal government and commercial entities. To meet the demands of the industry, the STS business model is quite simple-where we cannot find and retain these practitioners – we will “grow” them ourselves. This led to the birth and development of the STS Apprenticeship Program. We have learned the District has a wealth of untapped talent, but that talent needs to be mined and trained. STS is committed to investing the resources available to find and train the District’s best and brightest with a special focus on minorities and females. The end goal of the Apprenticeship program is two-fold, create a challenging and rewarding career for you while creating a pool of qualified personnel to staff our federal contract positions.
