This course caters to those unfamiliar with scripting concepts and builds upon lessons learned in the Administrator Course. The VBS3 Scripting Language is easy to understand and master, allowing a user flexibility to add customized content and functionality to a scenario that extends beyond the capabilities of the Offline Mission Editor and Real Time Editor.
