The purpose of this course is to develop the behavioural skills required by instructors to facilitate maximum learning by students in a modern learning environment.  Those instructors who are employed or about to be employed in formal training to Phase 3 personnel should apply for the Defence Instructional Techniques (DIT) course.

Army, and affiliated, students should take note of the Army Instructor Capability programme.
