Abstract:

The objective is to provide Navy personnel involved with training with the best evidence regarding factors that make instruction effective. They can apply this information to improve the quality and productivity of Navy education and training. Sponsorship and resources for this effort were provided by the Chief of Naval Operations OP-01. A group of expert advisors was enlisted to assist in selecting the entries to be useful and important for Navy training. This book provides some of the most up-to-date, reference information for the three broad classes of personnel that run Navy schools. There are Training Executives Commanding Officers, Executive Officers, Training Officers, Training Petty Officers, etc. who manage, administer, and supervise the training enterprise at various levels. Instructors, who are mostly military personnel on job-rotational assignments, are briefly trained to be teachers, and are assigned as instructors for relatively short periods. Training Specialists are a third group, about half are civilians, and they provide professional advice and assistance to the other groups, as well as assisting with evaluation, and course materials design and development. Training Executives, Instructors, and Training Specialists are often assigned those roles and responsibilities as part of their job rotation. SDW
