The trend toward CBT (Computer-Based Training
) in professional development supports the trend toward e-learning.
For example, in 2003, the Navy replaced its 6-month division officer course with computer-based training
and officials told GAO that this change has resulted in decreases in class length and saved the Navy about $50 million annually.
It takes staff about 10 months to complete the Lucite course from beginning the computer-based training
to final assessment.
The DOC's training academy has developed 18 computer-based training
* A computer-based training
program explains the physical basis for vibration monitoring, examines vibration analysis through identification of discreet frequencies, and provides examples of real-life machinery problems.
Looking to the future, computer-based training
(CBT) and advanced distributed learning (ADL) are expected to be integrated into international training and education programs, posing additional policy, technology, and language challenges.
The DMSMS Center of Excellence is developing DMSMS computer-based training
modules for the DoD and industry workforce on the DAU Continuous Learning Center at <http://clc.dau.mil/kc/no_login/portal.asp>.
For example, you don't have just informal on the job training (OJT)--you have very structured OJT assignments blended with computer-based training
on key process concepts and then some study of system wide issues.
Sound and Beyond, which is the commercial release of a computer-based training
program first developed by HEI researcher Qian-Jie Fu, PhD, is designed to meet this need.
He was the author of four textbooks on underwriting and he developed computer-based training
modules for insurance topics for distance learning.
Workflow learning differs from workshops, reference manuals, computer-based training
, and classroom courses, which have been the staples of training.
Our partner would benefit from our computer-based training
development contracts with the Air Force, Army, Marines and several National Guard organizations.
