Abstract:

The responsibilities of signal commanders have evolved from a predominantly tactical orientation to an orientation between the command of Tactical Signal Units and Information System Command ISC units. This evolution necessitated a training requirement analysis for the Signal Pre-Command course PCC. Thirty-nine recent graduates of the course, including both Tactical and ISC commanders, were surveyed to conduct a training analysis. The survey was designed to estimate for each of 104 command tasks the frequency at which a task was performed, the importance of the task to mission success, and the adequacy of the commanders preparation to perform the task. The survey data determined that the Tactical and ISC commanders should be instructed separately and identified the tasks that should be included for each group. cp
