Alelo, the leader in interpersonal communication training software solutions, has completed delivery of VCAT West Africa and VCAT Horn of Africa 2.0 for the Joint Forces Development (J7), bringing the total number of VCAT courses available on Joint Knowledge Online (JKO) to ten (10). VCATs are designed to teach cultural awareness and mission-focused language skills for general purpose forces deploying to different regions of the world. The delivery of VCAT HOA 2.0 marks a significant upgrade to the original VCAT HOA course, providing trainees with additional features (similar to other recent VCAT releases) and updated content.
VCAT courses are designed to help trainees develop true intercultural competence for conducting successful operations and obtaining the highest level of cooperation with partner forces. Within each course, learners are given the opportunity to interactively practice and demonstrate their cultural understanding in virtual scenarios where they can apply critical decision-making in contextualized environments. These game-based courses are SCORM-compliant and include multimedia-enriched content designed to enhance the learners understanding and retention. Mobile versions add the benefit of anywhere & anytime training.
With these recent deliveries, VCAT courses are now available for the following regions: Afghanistan, Southeast Asia, Taiwan, South America, Central America, the Caribbean, Hispaniola, Northern Africa, Horn of Africa and West Africa. Additionally, VCAT Arabian Peninsula and VCAT Central Asian States are currently in production and slated for release in early 2015.
