The Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Co-Lab, an organization formed to develop and implement learning technologies across the Department of Defense, has certified NxTrainTM as Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM 2004) compliant. Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) and Israel-based SimiGon produce NxTrain, a next-generation PC-based integrated training and learning management rehearsal solution.
