National Training and Simulation Association


Companies in the simulation, training, mission planning/rehearsal and support services industry are represented through membership in the National Training and Simulation Association (NTSA), an affiliate of NDIA since 1992.

NTSA provides the training, simulation, mission planning, related support systems and training services industries a recognized, focused, formal organization to represent and promote their business interests in the marketplace. The association provides a forum to communicate the full capability and broad characteristics of all of the elements of training systems and mission planning to include associated support services.

Founded in 1988, the association fosters communication between the training industry, planners and acquisition agencies regarding requirements, procurement issues and policies. An important aim of NTSA is to see that all aspects of training, mission planning and rehearsal, training services and training range requirements are highlighted as independent and important "line items" in the overall planning, programming, budgeting and acquisition process.

The International Training and Simulation Alliance (ITSA) was established to strengthen NTSA's international access and to better promote training and simulation to the international community. The alliance is currendy comprised of ETSA, the European Training & Simulation Association; KTSA in Korea; and Simulation Australasia. Expansion, especially in Asia, is expected in future years. Visit the ITSA home page at www. itsalliance.org and the ETSA home page at www.etsa.eu.

The Modeling & Simulation Professional Certification Commission (M&SPCC), led by NTSA and composed of members from industry, academia and government, oversees the Certified Modeling & Simulation Professional (CMSP) certification program. Visit www.simprofessional.org to learn more about CMSP certification.

NTSA has approximately 200 corporate and 450 individual members. NTSA manages the annual 1/ITSEC (Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation & Education Conference) event, the largest training and simulation event in the world. I/ITSEC 2014 drew over 14,000 participants, including almost 2,000 from outside the U.S., and featured approximately 500 exhibiting companies.
