Abstract:

An analysis was conducted of the 19K duty position M1 tank crewman to identify additional tasks which should be trained in the Basic Noncommissioned Course for M1 tank commanders 19K BNCOC. The Systems Approach to Training was used to supplement the inventory of critical tasks that had been developed earlier by the Directorate of Training and Doctrine. A total of 16 critical tasks not currently trained in 19K BNCOC were recommended for inclusion in the course. In addition, the recommendation was made to modify three tasks and delete three others. Decision making, problem solving, and interactive tasks performed by tank commanders were also identified. The training devices, aids, and materials that will be available for use in 19K BNCOC for training tank commanders within the next three years were identified along with those that will be available in units for use by tank commanders to train their crews. The impact of new training systems and technologies on 19K training developers, instructors, and students was discussed along with the need for instructional computer literacy.
