Bluedrop Training & Simulation Inc., a subsidiary of Bluedrop Performance Learning Inc., has received an in-service support (ISS) contract with Boeing to provide ongoing support for computer-based training (CBT) courseware for maintainers of Canada's CH-147F Chinook helicopters.

The agreement provides management and on-site support of instructor-led CBT materials used in the maintenance training classroom environment to facilitate efficient and timely updates to course materials used by training instructors with the 450 Tactical Helicopter Squadron. The contract performance period runs through March 31, 2023, with a value of US$2.2 million and potential for two additional option periods that could extend the contract through March 2033.

“This is an important in-service support agreement that will provide critical support for CBT courseware and will ensure the RCAF maintenance personnel at 450 Squadron in CFB Petawawa will have high quality computer aided, instructor led training,” said Jean-Claude Siew, Bluedrop vice president of technology & simulation. “We will also provide onsite support that will be established at CFB Petawawa and provide training expertise to ensure that the courseware will evolve to meet enhanced requirements such as mobile delivery and advanced instructor interactivity.

“We will provide additional support with our core team of e-learning professionals based in Halifax and utilize Bluedrop's Learninglogics learning management system. We thank Boeing for its continued trust in Bluedrop's expertise and innovation capabilities of our Halifax-based training team.”
