Abstract : This report presents the results of the training effectiveness analysis conducted on a training program designed to transition train an armored cavalry from the M113A1 to the CFV. Soldiers in the 19D (armored cavalry scout crewman) were trained in the operation of the CFV and its major systems in preparation for participation in an FDTE at Ft. Knox. Data analyzed included results of written and hands-on tests, results from training on the prototype Conduct of Fire Trainer (COFT) and results from live fire exercises involving the 7.62mm coaxially mounted machine gun and the 25mm automatic cannon. Relationships between these data and soldier demographics/aptitude/attitude were investigated. Problem areas were observed in the soldiers' proficiency at acquiring, engaging and hitting targets with the CFV's weapons systems. Implications into CFV crewman soldier selection criteria were gained from this analysis.
