requirement for the creation and installation of a contemporary reserve
training plan and specialized curriculum has been identified in discussion
with the ADM (PA) Reserve Advisor and Dir. ADM (PA) Trg with respect
to the ongoing development of a new curriculum and training plan for
Regular Force PAOs.
Introduction to Distance Learning Public Affairs Training:
prototype site has been created to assist in the development of a distance
learning package for Reserve Public Affairs Officers. The content is
drawn from portions of the new curriculum being developed for the Basic
Public Affairs Officers Qualification Course (BPAOC). The intent is
to offer the same standard of training to R66 PAOs as is offered to
Regular Force PAOs however in a package that is geared to reservists
both in terms of delivery of the content and time frames for the training.
this site is not an official CF/DND site and it is presented for evaluation
and conceptual purposes only. The only active sections are some applicable
to PO 003 PA Imagery and are included as examples of the potential use
of training content in a distance learning/Internet based environment.
the new curriculum for the BPAOC is developed and evaluated in 2004
it is intended that a concurrent process will produce an equivalent
course for use in the training and development of RPAOs. This will potentially
serve as a both a professional development tool for serving RPAOs with
varying degrees of experience and as a primary training mechanism in
support of RPAO recruitment and development.
the entire concept will require validation in terms of delivery systems
and content this process will be a process of continual change and refinement
that will benefit from the input of the student base that it is designed
all issues related to this site and the Distance Learning concept of
training being examined through the use of this web based instructional
tool please contact:
