Augmented Reality (AR) is a technology which has become very popular in the last years. In this context also the idea of using of AR for training applications has become very important. AR offers a large potential for training only if the training is well focused to the skills that have to be trained and if the training protocol is well designed. On the other hand, the generation of the training content to be transferred via AR is a comprehensive problem that is addressed in this paper.
Thus, this paper tries to describe the whole chain of implementations and general aspects involved in the creation of AR training applications, including examples for used multimodal devices. This chain starts with the capturing of expert actions to be hold in "digital representation of skill".
The digital representation of skill is transferred to the training protocol that specifies the storyboard of the AR training session. The paper includes two different implementations of AR training systems and describes the general idea of informational abstraction from low level data up to interaction and from design to application.
