This paper is a description of the validation of the Land Force Technical Staff Programme (LFTSP) and Army Technical Warrant Officers' Programme (ATWOP) of the Applied Military Science (AMS) Department of the Royal Military College of Canada (RMCC). The LFTSP has existed since it was first run from 1995/1996. The ATWOP was commenced in 2003/2004. Although an evaluation was conducted on the LFTSP in 2001 and a validation of the LFTSP and ATWOP conducted in 2008, the information from these documents were not beneficial as not all of the graduates were canvassed, only a few of the Directing Staff and none of the Academics, who were involved in providing support to the programmes, were canvassed. This validation focussed on the qualitative method known as triangulation whereby multiple methods were used to confirm the desired results. Focus groups, interviews and surveys were the tools of the validation and despite the programmes changing considerably over their existence, the changes have been beneficial. However, there are several essential and desirable changes required to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the department.
