Does E-Learning apply to Firearm training? Yes, ATAC University E-Learning emphasizes on the basics fundamentals and builds from that foundation. After the attacks on U.S.S. Cole at Aden, Yemen on October 12, 2000 and the 911 terrorist attacks against the United States, there were actual directives set in motion, which forced the military, and many others to take a stronger stance on protection and force. A new doctrine of anti-terrorism was devised and combined with greater levels of military might that was not previously in place before.
As the department of the US Navy considered these new threats and how to effectively deal with them along with the fact that sailors were having higher numbers of monthly injuries and negligent discharges (the numbers doubled from 2001 to 2002) they felt that a change was definitely needed. The sailors were well trained in certain areas but lacked the necessary experience needed to carry, deploy and use their small arms. With the introduction of specific e-learning courses, the sailors were able to drop the “mishaps” by 50% in 2004 and 50% again in 2005. The Chief of Naval Operations made specific e-learning courses and programs mandatory as a ore-requisite in all divisions prior to any on range qualifications. Source: Alpha Solutions
