Computer Based Training (CBT) centers on the features and functionality provided by the Xacta IA Manager IT risk management suite. Each CBT consists of several courses that facilitate the workflow of the applicable product using tutorials and live demonstrations. Participants will be provided with prerequisite courses that teach the basics of how to use the Xacta application. In addition to providing instructions on accomplishing specific tasks, the courses provide participants with an overall feel for how the application is intended to be used.
Customers who purchase our embedded CBT video option for Xacta Assessment Engine will have the ability to access in-depth training videos within the application.
Our commercial off the shelf (COTS) Computer Based Training (CBT) programs address the use of the Xacta IA Manager Product suite.
The Xacta Assessment Engine User Course (NIST RMF) contains five Core Courses as prerequisites: these courses, when embedded into Xacta AE, will be located under the Training menu in the navigation bar.
After prerequisite courses are viewed, each task and its process steps in the Standard NIST RMF template are broken down into individual videos. These courses can be accessed either under the Training menu, the Training tab under the help icon for each individual page, or the Training icon next to the page title on each page.
The Xacta Continuum CBT runs independently, as an HTML document, and covers the following topics for user-based features:
We can tailor the Xacta AE User CBT to follow the customers’ specific Assessment and Authorization process (NIST, ICD-503, etc.). This option is most commonly preferred by organizations with highly customized templates and workflows with multiple paths. Like the COTS CBT solution, the tailored CBT model introduces prerequisite courses before task-based training begins.
The Workflow Overview course for tailored CBTs is fully customized to the customer’s template and provides a detailed description of each task and its purpose within the customized workflow(s). Approval roles are also addressed when applicable.
For Xacta Assessment Engine v5.0 or later, our user CBT is delivered via CD containing the mapping and videos to be uploaded into the application by an administrator.
All other Xacta IA Manager Product suite CBTs are delivered on a CD meant for stand-alone playback from a CD-ROM, hard drive, or network location (streamed). They utilize a multi-layered launch page system to direct the learner through the CBT. The CBT will include all applicable courses needed to get the user familiar with the fundamentals of the application. These standalone CBTs are launched in an internet browser window using Adobe Flash player and have the following Minimum System Requirements:
