Making training locally available generates more training opportunities. It reduces the time a soldier is away from his home station, eliminates excess travel time and per diem costs, and is accomplished in less time. The goal of Distributed Learning (DL) in the Army National Guard is to improve readiness by providing local access to training and education - anytime, anywhere. Supporting this goal, the Distributed Training Technologies Project (DTTP) was formed to meet three missions: (1) Improve readiness, (2) Improve command, control and communications, and (3) Explore the concept of shared use; making the classrooms available on a space available - reimbursable basis.
The strategy to achieve these missions is based on developing and synchronizing five essential components: hardware (network and classrooms), courseware, staff and
faculty training, support services, and business operations
