2)	To provide Instructional Design support for the development of new Instructor Development Modules. 
3)	To provide Subject Matter Expertise on the science of education when and if the need arises. 

BACKGROUND 

The Canadian Coast Guard College (CCGC) has or is developing specific training modules designed to enhance the skills and knowledge of new and existing Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) in the areas of basic and advanced instruction. 
The SMEs can be Master Mariners, Senior Marine Engineers, Marine Communications Officers and Electrical Technicians whom are hired to be instructors. The goal of these modules is to assure that SMEs who are selected to become CCG Instructors are given proper and sufficient instruction in the sciences of Teaching and Learning, thus enabling them to provide quality instruction in classroom, laboratory, simulators and live training locations.
The delivery of the identified training is mandatory and is required by the organizations that regulate the certifications required to deliver our regular programs. Specifically, many of our instructors (depending on the program that they will teach) must hold a certification proving that they have completed an Instructor Development Program that is accepted and authorized by a Provincial or Federal Accredited institution. Our programs are, or will be, authorized by Cape Breton University and by senior academic staff at the CCGC.
