NAVY IG Criticism of Computer Based Training

First, read the post from 7 June on Taking care of our Sailors.

"It is our fundamental responsibility to ensure our Sailors possess the right equipment, training, education and support to do their jobs effectively and safely."

The Navy IG suggests that we aren't getting the job done with regard to ensuring our Sailors are getting the right training. The Navy Times story is here.

Phil Ewing, the writer for Navy Times, told me that that full IG report would be available on the Navy Times website on Monday, 15 June. And, here it is.

At all sites visited, we found a cadre of knowledgeable and dedicated professionals committed to providing the highest quality of service and support to our Sailors. Though they frequently work in a resource constrained environment, they are focused on continual process improvement throughout the training domain.

The academic world long ago realized that CBT was inadequate.

DoD and the Navy elected to ignore that reality.
