Calian Technologies has received a contract to continue its support for the Canadian Department of National Defence’s (DND) air technical training renewal (ATTR) programme.
Featuring a two-year base performance period, the C$4m ($3.9m) contract is expected to have a maximum potential value of approximately C$8m ($7.9m) if the two one-year options are exercised.
As part of this contract, the company’s Business and Technology Services Division will deliver instructional analysis, instructional design and instructional content development services, to upgrade the current air technician training courses using electronic training delivery and blended learning solutions.
Calian Business and Technology Services president Kevin Ford said the company is honoured to expand provision of training services to the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF).
The company has selected Atlantis Systems as a sub-contractor for the provision of professional services to support development of eLearning assets and courseware under the contract.
Atlantis chief executive officer Ken Howard was quoted by The Chronicle Herald as saying that the development work is scheduled to be carried out at the company’s facility in Dartmouth, whereas training materials will be delivered at the Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Borden in Ontario, Canada.
Calian staff is already providing aircraft maintenance and repair training services at the Canadian Forces School of Aerospace and Technology and Engineering (CFSATE), which is located at CFB Borden.
Services include instructional services, course design, aircraft maintenance, information technology and administration support services, and they are provided on an as and when requested basis.
Calian also delivers training services at the Canadian Forces School of Communications and Electronics (CFSCE) located at CFB Kingston and other air force installations in St.Jean / Farnham, Quebec, Borden and Halifax, Canada, as part of contracts received in 2008 and 2010 respectively.
