The ADTLP is the umbrella program under which STPs are prioritized for printing and replication (including digital copies of the products) and distribution. The program’s purpose is to enhance the Army's ability to operate across the full spectrum of military operations.
a. CTD oversees the production of STPs by:
(1) Establishing the STP format and content requirements.
(2) Approving STP proponency, including proponent exemption requests.
Note: The STP development process requires proponents to plan to develop STPs.
b. An STP must be developed for every enlisted MOS, every officer branch (at school commandant’s discretion), and critical common skill level tasks (for example, STP 21-1).
c. Prioritize STP development to accomplish workloads within resource constraints.
d. Use the CAC-approved automated development system to manage STP development, plan for STP revision, and develop STPs.
e. Identify STP fielding dates. Use fielding dates to:
(1) Determine internal development milestones.
(2) Enter scheduled completion dates into the CAC-approved automated development system.
f. Staff the STP draft. Submit only one draft copy per each addressee:
(1) HQ TRADOC, ATTN: ATTG-IL, Fort Eustis, VA 23604-5000.
(2) Commander, USATSC, ATTN: ATIC-DLC-D, Fort Eustis, VA 23604-5206.
(3) Staff according to table 9-2.
Commandant, USACGSC, ATTN: ATZL-SWC-LE, Fort Leavenworth, KS 66207-6900.
Commandant, Warrant Officer Career Center, ATTN: ATZQ-WCC, Fort Rucker, AL 36362-5000.
(4) Staffing draft STPs with field units is optional.
g. Prepare final electronic files.
(1) Review, correct, and incorporate approved staffing comments and changes.
(2) Develop final electronic files according to:
(a) AR 25-30, chapter 2.
(b) DA Pamphlet 25-36.
(c) TR 25-30, chapter 8.
(d) TP 350-70-12.
h. The following are criteria for product completion:
(1) Proponents complete STP development when the proponent-approved final electronic files are forwarded to ATSC in accordance with ADTLP product management.
(2) ATSC completes STP responsibilities when final electronic files are forwarded to the United States Army Publishing Agency (USAPA) for replication and distribution. See TR 350-70 and TP 350-70-12 for more information on ADTLP Product Management, print/replication, reprint/replication, distribution, and database storage requirements.
a. Upon completion of the final draft of a learning product, the proponent must notify CAC-T, CTD to review the product in the CAC-approved automated development system for business rule compliance, and either concur or provide corrections as necessary. Should a correction be required, CTD must provide appropriate comments to the submitting proponent. The proponent must complete corrections in the CAC-approved automated development system and provide notification to CAC-T, CTD. CAC-T, CTD must review and concur with the corrected product format in the CAC-approved automated development system.
b. CAC-T, CTD must review all new products for compliance with policy and this guidance before they can be changed to an approved status and displayed on DTMS or any other approved Army and/or TRADOC automated site. CAC-T, CTD will review no less than 10 percent of revised products.
a. As part of the QC process, developers should validate learning products to determine if the products accomplish their intended purposes efficiently and effectively. Validation and revisions are continuous actions in the improvement process.
b. Product and material validation involves:
(1) Individual or group validation trials, depending upon the nature of the learning product.
(2) Verification of learning effectiveness.
(3) Determination of beneficial improvements in the quality of learning products and materials.
(4) Identification of learning product deficiencies.
(5) Identification of currency and relevancy of learning products and material.
