Training 2015

Training and Simulation Industry Market Survey

Released in December 2010

In 2010, the National Training and Simulation Association (NTSA) commissioned a team of training experts drawn from its member companies to produce Training 2015: Requirements - Trends - Forecasts for the Decade Ahead.

The project team was divided into target groups to facilitate the broadest possible survey of the military services, joint and special forces training, Congress, the Department of Homeland Security, and commercial and research activities.

The team met with high-level officials and conducted face-to-face interviews and on-site evaluations to compile a comprehensive assessment of future training needs. The information and data contained in this report is based on discussions with responsible officials regarding requirements and associated planning as well as programming and budgeting data. In-depth interviews and detailed analyses were used to define technological advances in training and sought to identify major trends shaping the training requirements in the decade ahead.

Topics covered include:

  • Forecasts for growth
  • Requirements and trends
  • Outlook for military budgets for training and simulation
  • Key training and simulation program details
  • What's ahead in vocational training and education programs
  • Training organizations

The resulting NTSA Training 2015 is filled with valuable information that we are proud to make available to you, free of charge.
