Why Did the Army’s Maneuver Center Choose the Kirkpatrick Model for Their Training Program?
During the ATD International Conference and Expo 2016, Dr. Jay Brimstin presented a case study on how the Maneuver Center of Execellence (MCoE) conducted an evaluation of one of their training courses using the Kirkpatrick Model.
The course that was evaluated was the Dismounted CIED Tactics Master Trainer course. Dr. Brimstin, the Deputy Director of the MCoE Directorate of Training and Doctrine, and Ms. Annie Hester, the Program Evaluation Office lead during the evaluation, described an evaluation effort in which they were able to demonstrate the effectiveness of the training course in improving units’ operational effectiveness while conducting combat operations in Afghanistan.
