Technology Business Management (TBM) Fundamentals Certification Training for the Federal Government

Level: Intermediate

This APMG Certification course covers The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) mandate requiring the adoption of Technology Business Management (TBM) across the Federal Government.

Successful implementation requires leveraging authoritative data with automation and moving away from the manual, time-consuming self-reporting that currently burdens Federal agencies.

TBM Fundamentals for the Federal Government FAQs

    No, the course will provide the background needed to successfully gain the knowledge needed to understand the fundamentals of implementing TBM. Basic knowledge of Federal budget processes and Capital Planning and Project Management skills is helpful.

  • Will Learning Tree’s course enable me to get my Certified Technology Business Management Executive certificate?

    No, this training is not affiliated with the TBM Council training.

  • The TBM Council Training is 4 half-days long, and Learning Tree’s is 3 days, why the difference?

    Learning Tree’s course is written with federal government employees in mind. The Learning Tree course covers not only TBM fundamentals but TBM implementation and integration with Federal agency procedures.
