EN Purpose: The military, like other public and business sector organisations, is subject to continuous personnel improvement, especially in the areas of technology and engineering. The aim of the article is to present the specifics of the technical training process in the army and the possibilities of its improvement based on the analysis of soldiers' needs. Design/methodology/approach: The article presents the link between the process of technical training in the army and the implementation of strategic, operational and tactical objectives and then identifies areas for improvement from the perspective of the direct recipient, which is the user of military equipment. Findings: Based on the barriers to the acquisition of technical knowledge identified in the study, an assessment of the methods and tools supporting technical training, and the expected methodology for conducting them, it was determined that the standard of technical training in the army should be enriched with a training closure stage that takes into account changes in the military unit caused by the purchase of new equipment. Originality/value: The utilitarianism of the study stems from the possibility of its use by the military to determine the way in which military equipment suppliers train their personnel (users, service personnel). As a whole, the material can be an important contribution to the development of a standard of technical training requirements for suppliers of security and defence equipment.
