Multimedia with its ability to involve various human faculties through the use of various media forms, provides a robust environment in which to learn in. Retention improves significantly when media exercises these various human faculties. Studies indicate that students complete training in one-third the time of the traditional instruction method while reaching up to 50 percent higher competency levels. Utilizing this technology can provide improved training tools and learning environments for the Department. Because of the many potential applications, technical and nontechnical, that may exist within the Department for utilizing this technology; a study was performed to answer questions about the technology; a study was performed to answer questions about the technology of multimedia and how to best utilize it.
