2019 TOC Distinguished Service Award Winner Series: NATO

Button for registering for a TOC Webinar

This year, TOC was proud to award North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) for its work on its development of the Protection of Civilians Virtual Reality Simulator. Its innovative development and design won the 2019 TOC’s Distinguished Service Award for Training Design and Development. In this webinar, join Tony Icaya, a NATO subject matter expert who helped build the tool, in a discussion about the tool itself and how it is helping to protect civilians around the world today. As you may recall from the awards ceremony in June of 2019, NATO won the award for their innovative approach to train civilians who are being deployed. NATO’s policy on the Protection of Civilians (PoC) Virtual Reality (VR) Simulation immerses NATO decision makers in the humanitarian impacts of war and to emphasize NATO’s PoC policy during the conduct of military operations. This is an immersive VR application to place the learner into a wartime environment and allow them to encounter scenarios and interact with the 3D virtual environment.

In this interactive and engaging webinar, Tony will: discuss how NATO developed the tool, including the storyboard and the close cooperation with C2 Technologies; show us the tool itself and how it works; and, what this means for the path of training at NATO in the future.

This program covers topics in the Innovation track.
