ITEC 2010 at ExCeL in London has witnessed the signing of a cooperation agreement on training between the Navies of the USA, the UK, Canada and Germany
ITEC 2010 has been the selected venue for the signing of an innovative co-operation agreement to boost the effectiveness and resource efficiency of the training undertaken by the United States Navy, the Royal Navy, the Canadian Forces Navy and the German Navy.

The four navies have agreed to create a series of formal collaboration arrangements to maximise the effectiveness and resource efficiency of their training and education activities. They will focus on improving training delivery processes, with an emphasis upon the people and products involved in the planning, analysis, design, delivery, assessment and quality assurance of training and educational capabilities. The agreement will help the four navies to ensure that training is delivered to the user in the right format, at the right time and whenever and wherever it is needed. Collaboration will take place at sea, on land and at the waterfront.

A key feature of the agreement will be the promotion of innovative methodologies that maximize and exploit each navy’s resources where goals are common, ultimately enhancing interoperability, coalition capability and fighting skill.

The four nations involved so far have agreed that other nations may become partners in this training collaboration in the future where all four accept that such an addition would further enhance and provide added value to the partnership.

Speaking at the event CAPT Kevin Oakes, Director Learning and Development, Naval Education Training Command said “We are delighted to be able to announce this new level of co-operation here at ITEC 2010. We see this agreement as a logical extension of the co-operation that already exists between our four navies and it will help us to establish a deeper understanding of our joint capabilities. Working together, we will achieve more and all of our people will get the best possible training and education using the latest and best training systems available.”

ITEC is Europe’s premier conference and exhibition for military training, education and simulation technology and services. This year’s conference takes place at London Dockland’s ExCeL Centre from 18-20 May and will be attended by representatives from a number of countries.
