CHAPTER 8. Training and Education


8.1 Introduction

NPD 7500.2, defines NASA's responsibility to "....provide commercial technology training to employees involved in commercialization processes (e.g., program/project engineers, commercialization specialists, procurement officials, etc.)" to enable them to fulfill their job requirements and to enable the Agency to achieve its (technology commercialization) goals.

8.2 NASA Sponsored Technology Commercialization Training Development

Recognizing that Agency employees will require a variety of courses and instructional approaches to meet technology commercialization requirements, the Agency offers the following training:

a. A course on Technology Commercialization for NASA Program & Project Personnel. This course is offered under the sponsorship of the NASA Headquarters Academy for Program Project Leadership (APPL) supported by the NASA Office of Human Resources & Education.

b. An executive-level technology commercialization video geared toward NASA management, program and project managers, COTRs, and scientists and engineers. This 6-minute segment features some of the most successful NASA commercialized technologies and their impact, both internal and external, to NASA.

c. Web-based training materials will be available on Intellectual property, Patent Law, Technology Reporting, Technology Transfer and Commercialization for Program and Project Personnel, and other courses as they become available.

d. Commercialization Training courses for NASA personnel (paragraph 8.3).

e. Alternative information and training resources including:

(1) NASA Commercial Technology Network (NCTN) and National Technology Transfer Center (NTTC) Websites which provide a variety of information on NASA technology commercialization activities, and links to other relevant sites: The URLs for these sites are: NCTN: http://www.nctn.hq.nasa.gov; NTTC: http://www.nttc.edu; Commercial Use of Space: http://commercial.nasa.gov; http://www.nttc.edu; Commercial Use of Space: http://commercial.nasa.gov.

(2) A Web-Based Technology Commercialization Resource Guide, containing technology commercialization information pertaining to NASA and other federal laboratories URL: http://www.nttc.edu/products/guide/index.html.

(3) Video Case Studies which illustrate successful NASA technology commercialization.

(4) Space Product Development program activities and accomplishments, http://commercial.nasa.gov.

8.3 NASA Sponsored Technology Commercialization Training Courses

Technology commercialization training courses are available to NASA personnel through the following methods:

a. Agencywide offerings on APPL schedule.

b. Individual courses available on the NTTC Website: http://www.nttc.edu/services/nasatrain.asp.

c. Center-specific training course offerings.
