Instructor Leader Assessment Program

Assists Senior Leaders in effectively managing talent within USAARMS. The program focuses on key leadership and instructor/writer positions (SSG-MSG)Instructors were evaluated on: physical fitness, orienteering, small arms marksmanship, weapons proficiency, combined arms maneuver planning, and professional written and oral communication skills. Cadre were able to successfully identify characteristics of each candidate in order to properly place them in specific instructor positions

Slide7

19D Training and Assignment Strategy

With assistance from Human Resources Command, the branch is effectively aligning 19D training and CMF19 assignments early in OSUT

Allows for a placement in a dedicated OSUT training path focused on the platform-specific skills required for their first assignment while familiarizing with all platforms

Reduces a Soldier’s learning curve upon arrival to their first duty assignment after OSUT

Allows for focused functional training throughout their career path SSGs and above will be predominately assigned to one of two units: either ABCTs/SBCTs or IBCTs/SBCTs
