History.This is a new U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) publication.
Summary. This pamphlet describes the budgeting and resourcing procedures and guidance supporting Army training and education. In addition, this pamphlet provides fundamental purposes, descriptions, and procedures of Army systems and processes which enable training and educational course resourcing requirements to be developed, identified, processed, and validated. The Army Program of Individual Training (ARPRINT) results from these systems and processes which are uniquely linked at key intervals to culminate in the projected student load requirements established for courses and new courses by fiscal year (FY) when published. The ARPRINT is the Army’s training mission which is entered into the Program Objective Memorandum (POM) for funding. The ARPRINT resource requirements for training and education were integrated and synchronized with Army systems such as: Structure Manning Decision Review (SMDR); Total Army Centralized Individual Training Solicitation (TACITS); Army Training Requirements and Resources System (ATRRS); Training Requirements Analysis System (TRAS); Training Requirements Arbitration Panel (TRAP); Training Ammunition Management System (TAMS); and Training Resource Management Information System (TRMIS). Integration and synchronization of these system occur at different levels, but each system addresses one or more pieces necessary to build the mission. The SMDR integrates annual force requirements or student load by course in relation to school location and training capacity which refines the overall mission. TRAS integrates

external systems of TACITS, TRAP, TRMIS, and TADSS with the training development and implementation process. In addition, TRAS enables accurate data insertion into ATRRS to maintain the integrity and currency of course and student data. For specific policy guidance in the management of the TRAS, see TRADOC Regulation (TR) 350-70. Training and education information systems include ATRRS and the Combined Arms Command (CAC) approved automated development system. ATRRS is the Army’s home of record for all Army courses and houses course data by school, proponent, and fiscal year. The CAC approved automated development system is the primary training development tool for training and education managers and developers.
Applicability.This pamphlet applies to TRADOC activities and The Army School System (TASS) training battalions responsible for managing, developing, and implementing learning products. It also applies to non-TRADOC agencies and organizations possessing memoranda of understanding or agreement and contracts for developing learning products for TRADOC and TASS agencies and organizations.
