Tuesday 18 Sep: (links to recording of 18 Sep am and 18 Sep pm sessions)

1.     Welcome and introductions (Tiffany Dombrowski):

Tiffany (NAWCTSD AIM Program Manager) greeted the FRB attendees and thanked them for

2.     NETC N7/NAVMAC status (Roy Hoyt/LCDR Brewster):

Roy (NETC N74) briefed the group based on the PPT presentation posted on the AIM information Web

          a.      Overview of NAVEDTRA status: general revision to move policy guidance into 135 and
make 130/131 more ‘how to’ cookbook guidance – 132: revision well underway under Joe Baldi; Bruce
Bare to brief meeting on IT support for assessment process this week – 133: lots of movement in both
theory and practice of HPPRs – Bruce Bare: how does Center track status of their course HPPRs? – Roy:
local tools now but would like to move to a standardized process supported by enterprise tool – also
working hard on fleet feedback process simplification and consolidation – attempt to extract and
consolidate existing feedback data from current systems / vehicles – 134: good revision done by CPPD
with excellent instructor training course revision driving further 134 updates – 135: hard nut because
it’s critical schoolhouse policy and admin guidance – and getting bigger with extracts from 130-131-136
– 136: NETC N72 John Wishall working closely with vendors to get feedback for next update (also see
Action Item 231) – 137: still a moving target based on greatly increased use and feedback to NETC N74
from user community – 138: in N7 routing for delivery for final signature – review draft posted on NKO
– Janet Gilmartin: relationship to OPNAVINST 1500.76C working draft? – Roy: very similar and
1500.76C is much better integrated with acquisition community

      b.      Integration with NATS HDBK: NETC N7 about to re-engage in early FY13, based on
ongoing coordination with other communities – OPNAVINST 1500.76C coordinated closely with OPNAV
N15 and will now invoke the JDTA process for the acquisition community

        c.      NETC INST 1500.10 (13 Aug 12): WITHIN NETC DOMAIN (NOT ACQUISITION UNTIL
1500.76C PROMULGATED), all new development and 50%+ revision must be done per 136/137 in
CPM/LO Module –> used within reason, based on actual changes in content when revising an AIM I/II
course into CPM/LO Module – supports plan to sunset AIM I/II within 5 years providing all
functionality then available in CPM/LO Module (See also ‘CTTL Import’ demo on revising existing AIM II
curricula into NAVEDTRA 136/137 form.)

                   Notes from 18-20 Sep 12 AIM FRB Meeting
Jerry Marino (SPAWAR): what is process of adjudicating whether new curricula is developed per 136 in
CPM/LO Module for transition to NETC Learning Center/Site? – Roy: NETC is eager to work with
SYSCOMs/acquisition community to do the sensible thing to deliver usable content to the schools – if
SYSCOM/Center impasse, NETC N74 will arbitrate – Angel Strong (ATRC): what is phasing of 5-year
sunset of AIM I/II? – Roy: no written guidance as yet; depending on community feedback and IT
support analysis with Bruce Bare/NETC N6

       d.       NETPDTC IDIQ contract for NETC learning content (John Wishall): awarded in May 12 –
focus of all upcoming NETC content development – lots of JDTA/FEA efforts under contract in support
of Center-led JDTA – NETC HQ conducting JDTA/FEA training periodically – BZ to CSCS JDTAs/FEAs
based on teaming with NETC – John is the main POC for initiating new tasks under this contract for
NETC community – stresses close coordination with NETC N74 team on policy and process

       e.      Upcoming JDTA projects as candidates for 136/CPM-LO Module effort (Roy): pushes to
load existing CTTL data as pre-load for building complete JDTA – stresses doing business how it makes
sense for the specific project and community within the overall NETC policy guidelines – (See also ‘CTTL
Import’ demo on revising existing AIM II curricula into NAVEDTRA 136/137 form.)

      f.     Detailed review/discussion of end-to-end process slide with focus on
implementation/use of JDTA as an integral part of that process

        g.     Atlas Pro interfaces (Roy Hoyt/Fred Barranger/Bruce Bare/John Wishall/Jim Ferrall):
ETMDS DO 1 gives current NeL equivalent function in Atlas Pro LMS – DO 2 will implement CeTARS
interface with more robust functionality than current NeL interface – Roy stresses that CMS WILL be
created and managed within AIM (CPM/LO Module) (also see Action Item 244 – John Wishall: all
learning content needs to start in AIM -> ILT, self-paced, labs – strongly endorsed by Roy – Jim:
overview of AIM tools interface tasks with Atlas Pro LMS (SCORM 2004 Ver 3 and 4 input from AIM
I/II/LO Module); LO Module output to ROCCE for CBT development and maintenance (complete on LO
Module side; pending tasking/funding of BAH for Atlas Pro ROCCE mods); Assessment Engine interface
completed on AIM I/II/LO Module side to publish test items developed and maintained in AIM; pending
tasking/funding of BAH for Atlas Pro Assessment Engine mods) – Assessment Engine output could also
be adapted to other Learning Assessment Systems such as QM Perception

        h.     NETC/OPNAV N15 integration of business processes (Roy): Rev C to 1500.76 in late
draft, posted on NKO – still in flux with OPNAV re-organization – also still discussing interfaces with
aviation community for NATS HDBK

        i.     NAVMAC/OCCSTDS (LCDR Brewster): import of NOID-based OCCSTDS into CPM
OCCSTDS tab; working with AIM team and prototype implementation on-line in Oct 12 – goal is to
import all NOID-managed OCCSTDS into CPM as soon as possible – OCCSTDS import into JDTA tab;
Jamie Stewart on ongoing AIM team task – Roy: push for notification of impacts when previously-
imported OCCSTDS changed – new tab in CPM for LCS position descriptions vs. forcing LCS data into
traditional OCCSTDS structure –> based on internal NAVMAC Code 40 request because of the unique-

                   Notes from 18-20 Sep 12 AIM FRB Meeting
ness of LCS compared to all other programs – stresses close coordination with NETC N7 to standardize
processes, structure, and terminology for defining performance tasks for use by all Navy consumers in
MP&T – Roy: start with initial Master Task List tab in CPM and coordinate process and permanent
ownership/mgmt with NAVMAC team – NODCAM (Naval Occupational Data Control and Mgmt):
prototype project being developed for NAVMAC by NPRST/Serco (vendor) – includes powerful
collaborative tools for virtual OCCSTDS development, review, and validation –> pushing for close
collaboration with NETC N7 and integration into the CPM business process via automated publishing to
CPM OCCSTDS tab (same theory as transitional NOID-based OCCSTDS data import now in work) –
delivery of system including 2 ratings to NPRST in Nov 12 with NPRSTC building out many (if not all)
remaining ratings OCCSTDS (pushing for Sep 13 on-line)

QM Perception survey tool: QM has delivered NAVMAC-specified survey tool that will import OCCSTSD
data as the basis for a Perception-based survey of statistically significant sample of fleet incumbents to
validate preliminary OCCSTDS revisions – currently testing in commercial environment; plan for formal
implementation at NETPDTC as soon as possible – Bruce Bare reviews IT process and sequence –>
including complete Authority to Operate (ATO) for updated version of QM Perception – Bruce: per
question from ATRC, PMW-240 will continue to fund Perception enterprise s/w license

3.     NETC N6 status (Bruce Bare, Russ McNair, Tiffany Dombrowski):

Bruce briefed the group on background of his functions in NETC N6 IT environment, based on the PPT
presentation presentations on N6 issues including Enterprise Training Management Framework (ETMF)
posted on the AIM information Web page

       a.      ETMF project: Russ McNair (NETC N62 ETMF project technical lead) assisted Bruce in
describing and explaining the business process and rationale behind the ongoing ETMF project to
rationalize and integrate the NETC learning business process and portfolio of IT applications – focus on
creating logical data models as the basis for strategic planning blueprint – ETMF project works ‘the
seams’ between the existing NETC IT enterprise tools (AIM – LMS – CeTARS – eTEM/eTRMS) – Roy
stresses need to make architecture process support business requirements and do incremental,
achievable integration

       b.      Discussion about CMS and CeTARS modifications to support NAVEDTRA 136 business
process – further discussion later in the meeting

        c.      eTEM (Bruce Bare): push for enterprise toolset to manage all training equipment for
NETC CINs – policy on use of that standardized toolset and processes will follow as system gets proofed
and rolled out (probably NETC INST initially) – need governance and roll-out planning –
equipment/inventories will be phase 1 – followed by trainers in phase 2 – with deficiency identification
and tracking – Roy Wilde: how will all the equipment data required get loaded into eTEM? – Bruce:
vision is to output FROM eTEM into AIM RRL equipment categories vs. importing to eTEM FROM AIM –
will load as much data from current tracking systems as possible to initialize the eTEM system

                   Notes from 18-20 Sep 12 AIM FRB Meeting
ACTION 240: AIM team to coordinate with Bruce Bare and generate white paper to define
implementation process for importing authoritative list of equipment / equipage from eTEM – next

4.     NETPDTC hosting of AIM tools (Peg David, Roy Hoyt, AIM team):

Peg (NETPDTC N62) briefed the group based on the AIM Enterprise Centralization PPT presentation
posted on the AIM information Web page.

        a.      Overview of AIM I/II Central Site implementation: all Centers either on-line or in final
implementation process with completion goal of 30 Sep 12 – all data will be loaded; user account setup
will continue into Oct (and maintenance ongoing indefinitely) – overview of eventual transition from
NETPDTC to SSC New Orleans – user feedback: ATRC has good performance in the am, later in the day
tend to have delays in getting back into the system or get kicked off sometimes – discussion of better
release discipline so that Center users on the Central Site are ensured to have the same version as any
stand-alone vendor versions to support vendor export / Center import – Roy: come Jan 2013, NETC
N74 will strongly discourage their domain from having local NMCI AIM instances installed – Bruce:
concern about lower service level agreement (SLA) standards at SSC NOLA in terms of reliability /
maintainability of AIM user service, compared to current NETPDTC hosting SLA – good discussion /
feedback from a wide variety of users from different communities

      b.     CPM Hosting: still hosted at AIMREON (AIM support vendor) until formal Authority to
Operate (ATO) granted by NETWARCOM to NETPDTC – likely to occur about 31 Jan 13

       c.     ATO status: Certification and Accreditation (C&A) pkg to be completed at NETPDTC by
the end of Sep 12 – then on to NETC IA and NETWARCOM for chop and final approval with anticipated
ATO granted by 31 Jan 13

       d.    eDMZ standup: move Central Site instances into NMCI eDMZ from the current legacy
NETPDTC hosting environment once ATO granted – POA&M will be developed for standing up legacy
environment systems into eDMZ STARTING when ATO is awarded and contingent on passing reliability
and performance testing

       e.     Expanded AIM I/II privilege Levels: in work; scheduled delivery to govt is 31 Dec 12

       f.     Host Test Environment: still in discussion from budget perspective

       g.       Blocking Word macros: with Win 7/Office 2010 push from NMCI, some local users are
unable to enable Word macros to support AIM TG printing – Ron Zinnato, Steve Wicinski, and NETPDTC
team are still working this issue

      h.    Software release process: plan to go to quarterly releases of incremental software
enhancements for all Central Site instances – NAWCTSD AIM Lead Engineer will post releases for

                   Notes from 18-20 Sep 12 AIM FRB Meeting
download/install by non-NMCI user activities – still working issues related to streamlining NMCI
certification process for non-Central Site NMCI users

       i.      NOFORN NNPI: SLC (Leslie Mazzone) working on NETPDTC-hosted site for their content
but has not yet gotten it up and running – addresses only AIM output content and supporting
documents; NOT on-line development and maintenance of AIM-based NNPI content

       j.     Content repository RIS: Peg working the Request for Information Services (RIS) to
authorize establishing a content repository including refining Center-based requirements – Roy:
timeline? – Peg/Bruce: RIS has to be approved by enterprise FRB and then goes back to NETPDTC to
plan and implement

5.     Lessons learned from CNATT/CSFE NETPDTC hosting of AIM tools (CNATT, SSP, CSFE, CID,
CSCS, and CSS, Naval Shipyards):

Largely addressed during NETPDTC presentation – CID (Joe Pekarske) question on how to manage
accounts for contractor access to Central Site once limited privilege level is implemented – Peg
David/Tiffany Dombrowski: should staff that through Center process same as their own staff and
certify ESS accounts to NETPDTC to establish access – Bruce Bare: are Centers always engaged in
SYSCOM/acquisition learning content development? – Roy Hoyt: very frequently but not always –
Bruce: if vetted and endorsed by Center which will receive the finished curriculum product, NETC N6
will probably support – Peg: gets back to issue of resourcing additional users / instances from the
SYSCOM community – extended discussion about future collaborative development between SYSCOMs
and NETC communities – Roy: this will/should become the norm for future development

6.     MT Continuum Capabilities (Blended Learning) Update (Mark Crawford for Gerry Cullison):

Reviews background of program and role of CPM/LO Module and AIM team – long involvement of MT
Continuum project in NAVEDTRA 136-compliant learning content -> at least 5 years in the design and
development process – good set of lessons learned in PPT – using Central Site and making production
content despite frequent disconnects; being troubleshot by NETPDTC with AIM team support –
Classroom Control Software (CCS) overview as replacement to current Elite implementation – Bruce
Bare cautions about planning to run non-DADMs CCS in NETC electronic classroom per IA
considerations and process – also need work for ongoing coordination with CeTARS for data interfaces
– Bruce is sympathetic to collaboration with NETC/N6 to explore possibility of wider implementation
beyond SWS community

7.     Review of Apr 2012 FRB Meeting action items (Tiffany Dombrowski):

Began review; completed am 20 Sep.

Link to PPT

       a.      JDTA: import of data from other systems

            AIM II CTTL: import is complete, tested, and delivered (on-line in Rel 5.0 as deployed on
NETPDTC Central Site instances)

             SPAWAR TACD JTA system interface: has been explored and prototyped but still needs
more coordination and some import software refinement

              MTL: extensive discussion with Denise Green (CNATT) and Janet Gilmartin (PMA-205)
about how to define standard source and structure of MTL data to import into JDTA Tab via CTTL
import work area

ACTION 241: NETC N74 and AIM team prepare white paper to define JTA data import process to
JDTA based on existing CTTL import structure to provide a target for JTA processes / toolsets to
define compatibility, analyze data, and functional gaps – by next FRB

ACTION 242: Leslie Desenburg and John Wishall chair working group to evaluate JDTA attributes and
make recommendation to NETC N7 on implementation for business process and for toolset impact –
31 Oct 12

        b.      Front End Analysis (FEA) process (John Wishall/Pat Archibald/Danette Likens): John
introduces Pat as NETC N7 lead on FEA – Danette talks about AIM team work with NETC N7 to date on
prototyping FEA support in a new tab in CPM –> demo of prototype 9/20 am FRB session and posted
with meeting recordings – Mike Coyle: how does FEA process fit in with current CPM JDTA and Project
process? – Danette: FEA as end of PADDIE Analysis process and needs to be bridge between JDTA
performance requirement definition and formal learning content design and development via Business
Case Analysis (BCA) evaluation of recommendations from the FEA – John: NETC N7 conducting training
on non-CPM FEA process now and recommends designers/developers participate in one of those
monthly sessions in Norfolk – process flow available in new NAVEDTRA 138 (basis of AIM team
implementation of FEA Tab in CPM) – D Harrison-Youngs: need to incorporate filtering into new FEA
Tab to support focused FEA development on small slice of complete rating JDTA – John: 138 draft and
FEA prototype information available on NETC N7 NKO page – Roy: one major output of JDTA is Course
Training Task List (CTTL) –> therefore, that should be feeder for FEA vs. massive list of tasks needing to
be filtered into manageable FEA – extensive discussion of appropriate level of focus in JDTA potentially
to support multiple courses produced from single JDTA – Jerry Marino (SPAWAR): what about
performance support and how does FEA process map to TRPPM requirements/process?

        c.     Business Case Analysis (BCA) process: target of future implementation in CPM based on
early (and evolving) prototype done by the AIM team last year – currently a manual process to take

                  Notes from 18-20 Sep 12 AIM FRB Meeting
detailed outputs of good FEA and make rationale choices about most cost-effective way to implement
learning content based on JDTA as evaluated through FEA – Roy Hoyt: stresses that end-game is to
incorporate BCA support in CPM once FEA process/toolset support is finalized

ACTION 243: NETC N72 (John Wishall) work with AIM team to define more detailed requirements
and data structures for BCA support in CPM – next FRB meeting

ACTION 244: based on NETC N74 decision to apply current 50-minute period structure to NAVEDTRA
136-compliant learning content, AIM team develop white paper discussing implications of that
approach and develop ACR to implement that guidance into CPM/LO Module – 31 Jan 13

        d.      Course Master Schedule (CMS): Danette reported to group that re-engineering of AIM
I/II CMS as directed by ACR from Angel Strong (ATRC/CSCS)-chaired working group has been
implemented, tested, and delivered to NAWCTSD – she also indicated that the AIM team continues to
work with NETC N7 and CeTARS team on implementation of NAVEDTRA 136 CMS into CPM/LO Module
(also see Action Item 244)

      e.      NETC metadata implementation – tasked/funded for implementation in FY-13 – need
feedback on design documents from community when delivered

planning support in LO Module

9.     JDTA and NAVEDTRA 136 learning content projects (FRB reps):

        a.    PMW-240/NSIPS project (Jake Aplanalp/PMW-240): Jake, former AIM PM at NAWCTSD
now at PMW-240, described their NSIPS project that is implementing JDTA process and attempting to
use CPM/LO Module to develop / update NSPS learning content needed across many different Navy
communities – described wide scope of NSPS training required including several NETC communities as
well as many non-NETC communities

      b.     Naval Shipyard (Richard Payne): described Norfolk Naval Shipyard process of
implementing CPM/LO Module for design/development of their shipyard training content

10.    Training (Tiffany Dombrowski/Dave Donnelly/Yvette Bartholomew):

Link to PPT

               a.    NAWCTSD monthly training convenings in Norfolk/San Diego (Tiffany): mix of
       AIM I/II/CPM-LO Module with move toward more CPM/LO Module and less AIM I training –
       POC information on Web page – Roy Hoyt: when do we take AIM I/II user training off-line in

                   Notes from 18-20 Sep 12 AIM FRB Meeting
       favor of all CPM/LO Module user training? – discussion from both NETC and non-NETC user
       community –> Roy recommends transitioning to 75% CPM-LO Module and 25% AIM I/II

ACTION 246: Tiffany/AIM team to work with community to define requirement and schedule user
training at other venues beside Norfolk and San Diego – 15 Feb 13

       b.      Task-based Curriculum Developer (TBCD) course on NAVEDTRA 130/AIM II (Yvette):
course piloted second time in Jun 12 and promulgation expected in Oct 12 – course manager is Gary
Webster at CPPD (757-492-6226) – Navy training delivered by regions; e.g., CPPD for Norfolk area;
SWOS/CNE for Great Lakes, etc.

       c.      CCMM role for CSFE (Dave Donnelly): graduates of TBCD course will also be able to
teach AIM II user course although don’t plan to teach stand-alone AIM II frequently vs. stress on
integrated process and toolset training – Navy AIM II curriculum will be on-line in Oct 12 – based on
NETC decision about a year ago, no AIM I curricula

        d.     New NETC NAVEDTRA 136 content development course (John Wishall): current manual
FEA/BCA process taught monthly by NETC N7 in Norfolk – NETC has tasked/funded AIM team to
implement CPM/LO Module-based formal training by the end of FY13 -> JDTA – FEA – BCA – IMDP –
stress on blended learning solution ‘eating own dogfood’ of ILT, podcast, ILE training – NOT
BUTTONOLOGY BUT PROCESS – incremental deliveries with whole package available by Oct 13

       e.      NETC N74 JDTA user training (Leslie Desenburg): mostly JDTA process/practice with
demo of how JDTA implemented in CPM – for contractors supporting Centers (must train on company
funding, not contract funding) – has been expanded to include FEA and will soon incorporate BCA,
IMDP, learning objective development, and assessment strategies – conducted as in-house training at
NETC N7 HQ conducted once a month and also on-site for various communities as needed

11.    AIM/CPM Software Status (Danette Likens/Mike Coyle):

can be handled via pen-and-ink changes to awarded ATO – George Taylor: NETPDTC still working
enhancement roll-out process with SSC NOLA to determine how enhancements will be tested and
integrated into operational software instances (unit test should work as per current vendor testing pre-
govt delivery; functional testing as existing GAT; integration testing at dedicated test instance in NOLA
(initially at NETPDTC?) – Bruce Bare: NETC N6 has licensed s/w to ‘virtualize’ the application vs. doing a

                   Notes from 18-20 Sep 12 AIM FRB Meeting
full install; he will discuss with Ron Zinnato/Steve Wicinski to determine how/if that might apply to
future updates to AIM

ACTION 247: AIM team support NETPDTC to explore hosting training instances of AIM I/II on Citrix
farm in Pensacola to reduce the lag time in getting AIM s/w updated and configured for user training
convenings – next FRB

       c.     Gap analysis between AIM I/II and CPM-LO Module: Roy indicates that his decision on
9/18 provides the clarification required for the CMS gap identified – Roy confirms that test planning
MUST be supported in CPM/LO Module

ACTION 248: ATRC/CSCS (Jessie Harris leads) generate white paper on pros/cons of adding AOIT
functionality into CPM as it currently exists in CPM; support by AIM team – 31 Oct 12

NETC N74 – 30 Nov 12

ACTION 250: AIM team generate ROM for NETC N74 on agreed-upon additional CPM/LO Module
functionality per FRB discussion/decisions on the Gap Matrix and accepted ‘freeze’ date – 31 Jan 13

              d.       LO Module Webification: extensive discussion on 4 phase approach to
       ‘webifying’ the LO Module that will include freezing the current code base (desktop/CITRIX
       version) – will need FRB input; functional version will have same functionality and will be
       database compatible with the frozen code

        e.   New requirements (John Wishall): enhance current IMDP function in CPM after FEA tab
is implemented – add assessment-related Table of Specifications

12.    ACR and FRB Requirements Refinement (Ron Zinnato):

       c.      discussion of new and open individual ACRs:

               -      ACR 50: Nicole to coordinate with originator Jamie Swaim of CFS/MT Continuum
               -      ACR 276: practice items designed the same as the test items – too complex for
practice item and not included in LP output – makes s/w use difficult and may not be a massive effort
to fix
               -      ACR 136: ability to suggest a new KSATR – applies once JDTA is done and during
Project development developer identifies a KSATR that SHOULD have been added during initial
               -      ACR 258: Project editor permissions should include capability to export project
to EDE for use in LO Module
               -      ACR 271: add additional test item types into LO Module – AIM team has worked
with originator on provisional storyboard design with actual question type developed in CBT toolset –
per Roy Hoyt, defer implementation consideration until NAVEDTRA 132 is revised
               -      ACR 272: add special periods to CMS in CPM/LO Module to make it match
CeTARS – per Roy Hoyt: essential to provide fully functional CPM/LO Module learning content; high
               -      ACR 267: import AIM II RRL data items into CPM RRL

ACTION 255: AIM team draft ACR on adding text block for TPP in CPM to indicate that this TPP

ACTION 257: AIM team support Bruce Bare to identify all current AIM I/II NMCI users – 31 Oct 12

       b.     Demo of CPM import of existing AIM II CTTL data: software is tested and accepted by
the govt but will not be usable until updated version of AIM II is released in Jan 13 – (See also ‘CTTL
Import’ demo on revising existing AIM II curricula into NAVEDTRA 136/137 form.)

Note: an important complement to this CTTL import functionality on the front end of the NAVEDTRA
136/137 and CPM/LO Module process is the new functionality to do ‘batch mode’ copying of existing
DPs/RIAs and TG Sheets from existing traditional 130/131 curricula into the CPM-defined course-
module-lesson-section structure in LO Module – see narrated demo of that functionality on the AIM
information web page.

        c.       Demo of LO Module webification: Mike Coyle stresses that this is still an early design
prototype and only partially functional but team wanted to begin to get FRB/community involved in
acceptance of look-and-feel of Web-based implementation of current desktop client LO Module – good
participant feedback in questioning similarities to and differences from the current desktop client LO
Module – question for Steve Wicinski from Denise Green about functionality of HTML editor; Denise to
articulate all aspects of her question and will provide to AIM team for analysis and feedback – Melanie
Hinson: will Webified LO Module support ILT content? – AIM team: Webified version will support all
current ILT support in desktop client

        d.      Demo of linking function for existing interventions tab in CPM: discussion with John
Wishall about potential interactions with NeL-based content – discussion about Action Item 212 from
Apr 12 FRB on potential requirement for digital linking of IETMs to JDTA as authoritative source data to
support automated life-cycle maintenance – Roy: based on discussion and process philosophy, this
functionality is NOT desired – Action Item closed

        e.    Demo of FEA prototype: based on NETC N7-approved approach per NAVEDTRA 138 and
NETC INST 1500.6 – good participant feedback in questioning similarities to and differences from the
current desktop client LO Module

ACTION 258: Leslie Desenburg post schedule for NETC N7 JDTA training
