Abstract : This paper (Part I of a two part paper) describes the Strategic Weapon System Training Program (SWSTP) used in the Navy's POSEIDON and TRIDENT Submarine Force. The goal of the SWSTP is to provide current, comprehensive, job-related training for Strategic Weapon Systems personnel in support of maintaining the SWS in a high state of operational readiness. The POSEIDON and TRIDENT submarine systems are required to operate in an environment where the ships must be completely self-sufficient, yet maintain their weapon system in a constant up condition. This requirement necessitates trained technicians who can operate and maintain their equipment without outside help. The SWSTP, developed and refined over the past 10 years, has five major elements: Personnel Performance Profiles, Training Path Systems, Curricula, Personnel Qualifications Guides, and the Personnel and Training Evaluation Program. These elements and the supporting organization are described.
