Abstract:

This report documents the analysis, design, and development of a prototype training product for the Brigade Battle Captain. The product is a computer-based, stand-alone, training support package to assist individual officers and noncommissioned officers in infantry brigades in learning to perform their duties as Battle Captains. The product consists of a compact disk that presents a self-paced course of instruction on the roles and responsibilities of the Battle Captain. Lessons learned from observing and evaluating unit training exercises at the combat training centers CTCs serve as the basis for some content. The course also contains numerous tactics, techniques, and procedures and job aids that will assist Battle Captains in understanding and mastering their individual skills and their role in the collective process. This program continues ARIs efforts to provide computer-based instruction to military personnel through the CTCs and the Force XXI Training Program. The U. S. Army Infantry School and the Joint Readiness Training Center will assist in evaluation of ways to implement this training. The Battle Captain training materials have application beyond Infantry.
