Commander’s Safety Course
Carney created a nine hour online Commander’s Safety Course for the US Army Combat Readiness Center. The course introduces the importance of risk management and provides information and tools to support risk management. Practical exercises require commanders to plan missions and make realistic risk-management decisions.
Using a suite of rapid-development production tools, we created the nine hour course in 120 days. The course is available on two Army learning management systems, and has been taken by more than 20,000 commanders.
Composite Risk Management Tool and Commanders Toolbox
Carney created a pair of electronic tools that enhance safety training programs and aid commanders in decision making while using the Composite Risk Management process.
The Commanders Toolbox allows users to search through and download a catalog of available resources. To learn more about Carney’s work on the Commander’s Safety Course, see Knowledge Management Case Study – Commander’s Toolbox – US Army’s Combat Readiness/Safety Center.
The Composite Risk Management (CRM) tool is a stand-alone software application that provides a structured framework for unit commanders to use while evaluating the overall risk involved in missions and activities in their command.
Land Navigation Interactive Courseware
Carney created a six hour online course to introduce Army personnel to map-reading skills in preparation for hands-on land navigation training. With a limited budget and tight deadline, we designed a multimedia course that demonstrated map reading and interpretation procedures, including the use of protractors. Learners then performed similar tasks using protractors and hard-copy maps. The courseware then evaluated each student’s response and either validated it or suggested areas for remediation.
This course won a Brandon Hall Excellence in Learning Award for use of media and prepared soldiers to learn the critical components of field training.
Computer-based Geospatial Intelligence Software for US Army Special Operations
Carney delivered a learning solution that accelerated geospatial intelligence software training and enabled the Army to administer it more flexibly. We developed a computer-based courseware solution that not only trains soldiers to use the software, but simulates software operation and incorporates practical exercises and feedback.
This hands-on electronic training cuts classroom instruction time from 80 hours to 12. The electronic courseware has the added benefit of serving as a portable job aid in the field.
