About NTSA

Companies in the SIMULATION, TRAINING, and SUPPORT SERVICES INDUSTRY are represented through membership in the National Training and Simulation Association (NTSA), an affiliate subsidiary of the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA).

NTSA provides the training, simulation, related support systems and training services industries a focused, formal organization to represent and promote their business interests in the market place. The Association provides a forum to communicate the full capability and broad characteristics of all of the elements of training systems and services to include associated support services.

Founded in 1988, the Association fosters communication between the training agencies regarding requirements, procurement issues and policies.

An important aim of NTSA is to see that all aspects of training systems development and training services requirements are highlighted as independent and important "line items" in the overall planning, programming, budgeting and acquisition process.

Association Objectives

  • Represent to government the non-partisan business interests of the simulation, training and support services industries.
  • Increase the value of training systems and services provided by industry to government.
  • Inform and educate the legislative policymaking acquisition and regulatory functions of government, including Congress, the Department of Defense (DoD) and other agencies.
  • Provide direct contact between acquisition activities and the industry to better communicate with regard to procurement issues and policies.
  • Act as a clearing house for business policy, ethics and practices affecting industry.
  • Provide industry-wide bulletins and news reports.
  • Actively participate with, inform, and support the training-related activities of other industry associations such as AIA, and EIA.
