THE role of training in the Army
is to best prepare soldiers for
Soldiers are therefore required
to understand the law of armed
conflict, rules of engagement,
international law, cultural and
humanitarian issues as well as
being able to use their initiative
and take control of situations in the
absence of leaders.
That is where adaptive cam-
paigning comes into play.
In line with that, and after a
heavy training year, 2 Div is in
the process of taking stock of its
Training Design Framework (TDF)
introduced earlier this year.
Deputy Commander (Training)
2 Div Brig Steve Porter said TDF
provided a standardised framework
looking at individual and collective
training conducted within the divi-
sion and the mechanics supporting
“Army’s personnel are a fun-
damental input to capability and
must be trained in the requisite
skills and trades to suit the types of
activities the Army will be called
on to undertake,” Brig Porter said.
“The framework focuses on the
delivery of challenging training
that is necessary for units and sub-
units to ensure capability delivery.”
OC Training Assurance
2 Div Lt-Col Steve Brumby said
although training was essential to
ensuring Army was able to achieve
its mission, evaluation was just as
“The next step, evaluation, is
the key because it will provide the
measure of success and the feed-
back necessary to continuously
improve the training being con-
ducted,” Lt-Col Brumby said.
“Over the next 12 months,
2 Div soldiers should expect all
of their training to be evaluated
to measure the level of its effec-
tiveness towards achieving the
required capability outcomes.
“This will commence with a trial
activity, Exercise Deep Dive, which
will assess the evaluation frame-
work and process across the divi-
sion. Two selected training activities
per brigade will be used to assess
and enhance the framework.”
Lt-Col Brumby said the level of
evaluation to be undertaken would
be commensurate with the level
and purpose of the training being
“2 Div soldiers should not
expect to see a throng of observers
every time they participate in col-
lective training but rather a discrete
element, perhaps comprising com-
pany or battalion staff, observing
the training for its effectiveness.”
Once the process has been
proven, the evaluation process will
be rolled out to all collective train-
ing activities in 2012.
Let the evaluation begin
Battle ready: Evaluation of exercises
such as Hamel will help improve
training exercises for soldiers.
