The F-35 courseware introduces the aircraft and all of its systems and capabilities to both maintainers and pilots. The Interactive Courseware (ICW) provides the foundation for all subsequent training. Our sound instructional design principles produce topics, lessons, and units that allow the learner to master basic knowledge of the aircraft before advanced system-specific knowledge is introduced. The training instructs over 50 skillsets covering all three U.S F-35 variants (Air Force, Navy, and USMC) as well as a number of foreign military customers. Because the evolving nature of this emerging aircraft demands training be frequently revised, the courseware is designed to allow updates to be done once and then shared with all target audiences.
Complementing the F-35 courseware is enhanced training developed for the F135 engine. While the basics of the F135 engine are included within the F-35 courseware, some learners receive more detailed training related to depot-level engine component repair and replacement. The same high-fidelity interactive graphics in the courseware are re-purposed in an F135 Electronic Training Aid (ETA). The ETA is used in the classroom to highlight, isolate/restore, separate/join, and cross-section any system of the F135 engine in a high-resolution virtual environment.
