Development of Computer-Based Training for Maintenance and Sustainment – Phase IV

NCMS Project #: 141007

Problem: Training curricula are often written to train too much functionality at one time and to large segments of job roles at fixed times.  The traditional model of instructor-led training in a classroom setting can be cost prohibitive due to travel expense and time away from the job.  Highly effective online training methods and new technology can now deliver a more consistent training message and engender better comprehension using developed methods that catch and hold the attention span as well as video instructors that are credible subject matter experts (SMEs).

Benefit: When fully developed, this effort will produce a concise methodology patterned after Marine Corps discipline, refining traditional online training methods to a higher degree of effectiveness by incorporating bite-sized content, interactive exercises and an active job-relative context in the presentation of the material.

Solution/Approach: Building on the accomplishments of Phases II and III, Phase IV will establish the sustainment routines and methodology with lessons learned from Initial Cut Over Training and develop a new methodology to apply to “Trailing –and Emerging User Groups” that were generated by new functionality enabled with the R12 Upgrade.
