The training system’s principles are agility, simplicity, and capacity.

DSOTEC (SOCOMD’s training centre) is developing a FRTS along Army’s three lines of effort (LOE): building a Training System Architecture, using and creating live-synthetic Training Environments, and developing a Training Continuum where skills, knowledge and competencies are attained at the point of need.
