The Model Training Program for Reserve Component Units (MTP-RC) is developing and evaluating computer-based maintenance simulation training for M1 turret and hull mechanics at the organizational and DS/GS levels. This report describes the courseware and a small-scale preliminary evaluation of the courseware's training effectiveness. Soldiers who received the simulated troubleshooting training made fewer errors per period of time on the hands-on transfer task than did control soldiers. The skills and knowledge developed in the courseware also generalized to a troubleshooting task not specifically trained. Apparent success of the program is attributed, in part, to the iterative review process that paired Instructional Designers with Army Subject Matter Experts during courseware development. The resulting training program is exportable, requires a minimum of trained instructors, and trains M1 maintenance skills on equipment not physically available.
