TiER1 Performance Solutions proposes to develop CATS (Competency-based Adaptive Training System), a system to address common warfighter training needs in the Air and Space Operations Center. A major goal of this effort is to prepare warfighters for mission readiness by integrating a Learning Management System (LMS), which delivers personalized content and learning events as needed and provides continuous evaluation of performance; a Learning Content Management System (LCMS), which maintains a catalog of learning and assessment opportunities; and a Competency Management System (CMS), which manages various domain-specific competency models and learner proficiency ratings. At the core of the CATS solution is a competency-based framework that is leveraged into learning objectives. These learning objectives are continuously evaluated while a learner is engaged in the system, enabling the dynamic creation and adaptation of learning paths to accelerate or remediate based on the trainee"s measured performance and proficiency goals. The design of CATS is a flexible system that incorporates the learner's previous experience, training, and proficiency in an organized way to efficiently prepare them for new career or mission goals.
