Part 3, Section 11 of this document provides information and technical guidance on the development of
training for the users within a system, in accordance with the relevant MoD standards.
Hence, Section 11 covers the following topics:
a) The Defence Systems Approach to Training.
b) Individual Training.
c) Collective Training.
d) Contacts for training development advice.
e) Training Support Requirements.
The purpose of training is to contribute to the cost-effective delivery of the required level of operational
capability by preparing MoD personnel to be at pre-defined and agreed levels of performance in the
areas of physical capability, skills, knowledge and behaviour, embodying the ethos and attitudes of their
respective Service. Training also builds cohesion and teamwork, and ranges from individual proficiency
training to the conduct of large Task Force exercises that test command and control and the application
of doctrine. Training enables personnel and units to continue to operate in the confusion and stress of
combat beyond a predefined (raw) capability. Training must be provided for individual operators, users
and maintainers, for sub-teams, full and command teams in order to support the delivery of the
operational capability. Collective (Team) training plays a critical role in enabling the Services to meet
their objectives of increased operational effectiveness with fewer personnel.
