Training to counter improvised explosive devices is to be provided to the U.S. Marine Corps Engineer School by A-T solutions.

The training, plus ancillary support, for the school's counter-IED program comes a task order from the GSA Federal Systems Integration and Management Center on behalf of the Department of Defense's Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization Joint Center of Excellence.

The task order has a total value of $32.8 million.

"We are honored to be selected to support this critical training program for the United States Marine Corps and Marine Corps Engineer School," said Dennis Kelly, president and chief executive officer of A-T Solutions. "Our team has a uniquely personal and deeply professional understanding of the urgent need for highly relevant and effective counter-IED training for our military forces.

"This training is absolutely critical to helping us ensure that our Marines are well-prepared for their missions, understand the hostile regions and environments in which they will be working, and are ready to face the possible threats they may encounter from IEDs."

A-T said its training services that enable the Marine Corps Engineer School in the development and delivery of Defeat the Device training and will be conducted at Marine Corps facilities in North Carolina, California and Japan.

Additional details about the training were not disclosed.
