Information : Computer-Based Training
In August 1999, the Naval Sea Logistics Center, Detachment Portsmouth developed and implemented Computer Based Training, a windows-based and web-enabled training system for use with the Contractor Performance Assessment Reporting System. Computer Based Training is a fully automated system that can be operated via CD- ROM or the Internet.
Previously, the Contractor Performance Assessment Reporting System (CPARS) training involved a traditional classroom setting to train personnel in operating the Naval Sea Logistics Center (NSLC), Detachment Portsmouth’s applications. This approach was paper based and, therefore, inaccessible from off-site locations. In August 1999, NSLC, Detachment Portsmouth developed and implemented Computer Based Training (CBT), a windows-based and web-enabled training system for use with the CPARS. This fully automated system can be operated via CD-ROM or the Internet.
CBT features web- and windows-based interfaces that facilitate training for NSLC, Detachment Portsmouth’s applications for use throughout the Department of Defense and industry. CPARS training now involves exam modules and easy accessibility from off-site locations. Users can review information regarding the CPARS, and check subject comprehension on-line. The goal is also to train the trainers.
Funded by the Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Research, Development, and Acquisition (ASN RDA), CBT has been used throughout the Department of the Navy (DON) since 1999. The system provides an estimated $200,000 in cost avoidance. Savings result from implementing web-accessible data and CD-ROM paperless information, and reducing travel expenses and the number of instructors. NSLC, Detachment Portsmouth is expanding CBT to include the Product Data Reporting and Evaluation Program (PDREP) and Level I/Subsafe (L1/SS) Verification Program training.
