The ability of a ship's crew to control damage is a critical measure of readiness for U.S. Navy ships. Proficiency in this area is largely a function of routine shipboard training. Since damage control skills tend to be perishable if not continuously practiced, shipboard personnel must have an effective means of exercising damage control skills. Computer based technologies that utilize the advantages of interactive courseware (ICW) present training opportunities that challenge the traditional methods of shipboard training. The Integrated Damage Control Training Technology (IDCTT) is an application of ICW that allows shipboard repair teams to exercise their damage control skills continuously. The trainer was installed onboard USS Harpers Ferry (LSD-49) and evaluated as a stand alone training device through administration of opinion surveys and comparison to various aspects of full scale drills with a standardized performance evaluation system. The shipboard IDCTT was found to be an effective shipboard training device that saves time. Additionally, it has significant cross training and team building qualities that can be integrated into an existing damage control training program.
