    The instruction/education, on-the-job or unit training required to provide personnel with essential job skills, knowledge, values and attitudes.


    • The system must be designed so that the specified target population can be easily trained to perform to standard

    • How much and what kind of training do soldiers, with the required aptitudes, need to acquire the skills necessary to accomplish their tasks?

    • Have you addressed different kinds of training?
      • Individual
      • Crew/team
      • Unit Collective (e.g., platoon, company and higher echelons)
      • Sustainment or refresher

    • Training Plans
      • How is training to be conducted?
        • Embedded
        • Hands-on equipment
        • Training aids devices, simulators, or simulations (TADSS), where simulations may be constructive (based on math or computer models), virtual using digital imagery, or live in the field.

      • Where is training to be given
        • School
        • Unit organization
        • On-the-job (OJT)
        • Home (i.e., correspondence courses)
        • Training Centers (e.g., National Training Center, Fort Irwin, CA)

      • What is to be trained (specific system, or combat tasks)?
      • Who does the training?
        • Additional instructors needed?
        • Special skills required?

      • Who is to be trained (active, reserve, civilian): the Target Audience
      • When is training/how long is training, and how is it distributed?
      • Are the training objectives reasonably achievable?
      • Are refresher courses needed?
      • Various measures of skill and knowledge acquisition
        • % of tasks performed to standard
        • Time required to achieve qualification
        • Number of practice trials required to achieve qualification
        • % failures to follow procedures
        • % tasks not trained to standard
        • % tasks inadequately trained
        • % tasks incorrectly trained
        • Inadequate reference materials, lack of reference materials, lack of training equipment, or lack of TADSS

      • Who evaluates acquisition of targeted skills and knowledge?
      • Training Strategy Considerations:
        • Is the target audience known and documented?
        • Have the system's critical tasks been identified?
        • Has the target audience and/or trainers participated in planning the training strategy?
        • If training TADSS are required have plans been made for their development?
        • Does the system require New Equipment Training Teams (NETT)?
        • Has a Training Effectiveness Analysis (TEA) been conducted?
        • Has the training strategy's validity been analyzed and checked?

      • Resources, funds, facilities, time and trainers:
      • Has the total implementation of operators/maintainers/repairers, and support personnel been considered in order to resource skill training and practice?
      • Has personnel flow through the Trainees, Transients, Holdees, and Students (TTHS) account been evaluated?
      • Has the impact on personnel training or availability to work, and on career progression been considered for officers/warrant officers/enlisted personnel/civilians?
      • Will the system have an impact on Common Task Training requirements?
      • How will the required training impact on total force readiness and on mobilization efficiency and speed?
