Some background information is provided on the scope of the paper and the basis for evaluating training requirements. In addition, this section covers the purpose of the paper and outlines some assumptions and constraints. The second section describes Ada training needs. This section argues that to obtain the full benefits of Ada related technology, the training program should include training in software engineering, development methodologies, support environments and Ada language syntax. The necessity to train managers is also discussed. The third section describes training methods. The use of contractor, government and in-house training is covered. This section is based largely on the Standard Automated Remote to AUTODIN Host SARAH project training program.
