To create a dynamic learning environment, the course is a combination of lecture, hands-on lab exercises and site visits. The courses include understanding the capabilities, functional characteristics and deployment of the latest data collection technologies, including Barcode, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and Mobile Devices. Database Management tools and technology are reviewed. Also included, are policies, procedures and best practices related to Data Collection, Validation, Security and Enterprise Integration as well as timely and accurate information capture of location, movement, status, and identity of units, personnel, equipment, materiel, and supplies. Challenges and lessons learned are a major focus of the discussions.
