Abstract : DOD defines its training infrastructure to include billeting, mess facilities, classrooms, equipment, software packages, and instructors used to provide, facilitate, or support training of the military forces. There are essentially three types of training: unit training, civilian, and formal training and education for military personnel. Unit training consists of military mission-type training performed at the unit level under the control of the unit commander. Civilian personnel training consists of various training courses offered to civilian personnel to enhance their job functions. This type of training does not have a formal training structure and, therefore, does not have a definable training infrastructure. The third type of training-formal education and training of military personnel-has a definable training infrastructure and is managed by the services' training commands. Our review focused on the third type of training.
