Calling all DoD Technical Data Management Professionals
Development of the new LOG 215 Technical Data Management course is entering the home-stretch, with the scheduled July 21-25, 2014 student pilot quickly approaching. For those who are not already familiar with this new course, LOG 215 Technical Data Management will be a web-based, asynchronous distance learning training course intended to provide students with a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of technical data management strategies, planning, processes, products and tools across the life cycle based on DoD policy, guidance, processes, procedures and best business practices from across the four Services and industry throughout the product life cycle.
With this new course slated to deploy early this fall, the upcoming July 2014 LOG 215 student pilot represents a unique opportunity for interested technical and, product data management professionals, technical manual developers, and others working in the Technical Data Integrated Product Support (IPS) Element arena to assist DAU in validating the content of this important new course.
The anticipated seat time for the LOG 215 course is estimated to be approximately 38 hours. Students who participate in the pilot will have just one week (July 21-25, 2014) to complete the course, rather than the standard 60 days normally authorized to complete a typical DAU web-based, distance learning course. Pilot students will need to be able to commit the entire week to completing this training, allowing sufficient time to electronically submit recommended course content changes, complete a time-tracker in order to determine appropriate number of Continuous Learning Points (CLP), and participate in a daily team "hotwash telecon" to discuss and resolve issues. In addition to assisting in validating the course content in preparation for course deployment, students who participate in the pilot will be given credit for completion of the course, and will be able to participate from home station (travel to a DAU campus will not be required). DAU faculty, help desk staff, and course developers will be available throughout the week of the pilot to respond to student issues and concerns.
If you are interested in participating in the upcoming July 21-25, 2014 student pilot, registration will be available starting today for LOG 215 Class 951 through the Training Application System. Please see the DAU iCatalog LOG 215 site for additional information.
