In today’s dynamic business environment, motivated and competently trained employees are your competitive edge. ARA can help you achieve this advantage with interactive training products and systems that meet your specific needs.

Our instructional designers and creative, technical, and artistic talent are experienced in working with both government and commercial clients and with a wide variety of delivery methods, including e-learning formats; immersive, 3D simulations and serious games; and instructor led classroom training. ARA cognitive scientists can also be involved in product design to ensure effective skill building through simulated experiences that feel like reality.

Our digital media and videography specialists capture and create graphics; shoot videos and photographs; work with storyboards to develop course layout, interfaces, configuration, and functions; and manage narrations and audio inserts required for programming. They collaborate with our course programmers to create custom Graphical User Interfaces and products compliant with the Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative’s Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) standard.

In the area of infrastructure, ARA staff have developed and delivered classroom training covering a broad series of topics via courses sponsored by the National Highway Institute (NHI), Ontario Good Roads Association (OGRA), and many other organizations.

We are able to adjust and adapt to rapidly changing training requirements to produce quality products that reflect the most up-to-date information available. Our process combines the Instructional Systems Design (ISD) model with good project management practices to create training solutions that are user-friendly, informative, and effective in helping you achieve your performance goals.

ARA is also developing curriculum for RF technology training courses it plans on offering in Dayton, Ohio for technicians who will operate and maintain legacy and new technology systems used in the design, development, testing, and measurement of antennas, radomes, radar, and more.
