Defence Systems Approach to Training (DSAT) key requirements are outlined below, as well as how ADVISOR Enterprise (see more) simplifies and speeds the process, optimizes training resources, improves resource allocation, generates audit trail to support recommendations and produces training plans that leverage existing programs/resources.



Defence Systems Approach to Training (DSAT) key requirements are outlined in a 9 part series. See more.

Scoping exercise is triggered when a change in business or operational practices creates a perception that either new training is required or existing training needs to change. See more.

Once a training intervention is recommended, Needs Analysis must be conducted prior to the development of training. Different methodologies can be utilized to conduct a Needs Analysis. See more.

Training Design and Development (TD&D) is the process that derives achievable objectives and training solutions from the outputs of the Needs Analysis. The first of the three stages of TD&D focuses on the formation of Training Objectives (TOs) to meet operational/business needs. See more.

In the second stage of Training Design and Development (TD&D), training content is derived from Training Objectives (TOs), a strategy is created to assess training and the most appropriate training methods and media are selected. The result of this stage is the recommendation of a training solution. See more.

The primary focus of the third and final stage of Training Design and Development (TD&D) is the development of Instructional Specifications (ISpecs) (i.e. lesson plans), Assessment Specifications (ASpecs), Course Specifications (CSpecs), and a Course Programme. See more.

Once a clear definition of training requirements is established, the training must be delivered. Training Delivery must be conducted in accordance with the previously defined and approved training documentation, namely: ISpecs, ASpecs, CSpecs, and Course Programme. See more.

Following the delivery of training, its impact is assessed in the Evaluation phase, to determine what has been achieved, evaluate the effectiveness of training and verify whether the training contributed to the achievement of organizational goals and targets. Validation, on the other hand, ensures that the training processes and products meet Defence requirements. See more.

Training Needs Analysis (TNA) is typically triggered whenever new equipment is procured, or doctrine, organization or legislation undergo changes. In general, TNA should be conducted when a change in operational/business capability is likely to have a significant impact on training resources required (i.e., an increase or reduction). See more.
