JSP 822 sets out the defence systems approach to training and provides direction for the analysis, design, delivery, assurance, management and governance of training across defence.


Joint Service Publication (JSP) 822 is the authoritative policy and guidance on the defence systems approach to training (DSAT) which ensures that all defence training is appropriate, efficient, effective and, most importantly, safe.

Important notice

Defence Training Support Manuals (DTSMs). DTSMs no longer exist as separate documents within JSP 822. Many of them have been incorporated into Part 2 but the remainder have been re-located. More detail on this is given on page 55 of Part 1.
