Hanwha Defence Australia signs training contract on LAND 8116

Tuesday, January 31, 2023

To support the capability being delivered under Land 8116 Protected Mobile Fires, Hanwha Defence Australia has chosen Australian owned and operated MMC Learning and Development (MMCLD) to provide Computer Based Training (CBT).

Based in Sydney, MMCLD has a long history of working with Defence and law enforcement and has accumulated significant experience in a range of training services across the sector.

“Hanwha Defence Australia is partnering with MMCLD for the training solution for the Huntsman family of vehicles based on their strong record of performance in the sector,” Richard Cho, HDA’s Managing Director said. “Their track record in the Defence and law enforcement make them perfectly suited to the program.”

Supporting HDA’s Training team, a series of courses will be delivered to the Commonwealth during the Introduction Into Service training on the AS9 and AS10 vehicles.

The suite of courses will be provided to Operators and Maintainers of the ADF, sequenced to coincide with the batched delivery of vehicles between 2026 and 2028. Delivered on computers and devices where the customer requires, the distributed learning approach means that people can learn when and where they need.

“We are delighted to support Hanwha Defence Australia on LAND 8116,” Cary Redstone, MMCLD’s CEO said. “Our ability to partner and meet complex Defence learning requirements is what we do best. Over three decades we have invested in our workforce and technology to align our company capability and culture with the increasingly sophisticated and accelerating needs of the Defence enterprise to support projects of strategic significance such as Protected Mobile Fires.”
