The CDS Defence Support Training Development Team (TDT) includes Training Analysts, Course Developers and Instructors who have a wealth of current experience and knowledge of RADAR, complex electronic systems such as Satellite Communications, Data Communication Systems, ECM, Cyber and all aspects of Military Vehicle operation and maintenance. All CDS trainers are Security Cleared and have extensive knowledge and experience across a range of military and security disciplines.
All training material is developed and designed by a team of dedicated programme developers and delivered by established military trained instructors to meet the requirements of JSP 822 and the Defence Systems Approach to Training Quality Standard (DSAT QS).
