Categories of records in the system:

The system contains records pertaining to course administrative data, course scope and prerequisites, course training requirements, course equipment, personnel and facilities constraints, requirements for instructors, class schedules, class quotas, prioritized order of merit list for input into Noncommissioned Officers Education System (NCOES) training, by name reservations, limited individual personnel data, and course input and completion data by name/Social Security Number. Data related to an individual is as follows:

Training course completion data and reason codes for attrition are maintained for an individual, as well as training seat reservations.

5 U.S.C. 301, Departmental Regulations; 10 U.S.C. 3013, Secretary of the Army and 4301; and E.O. 9397 (SSN).

Purpose(s):

The Army Training Requirements and Resources System is the system of records for the management of personnel input to training for the Army; is the repository for training requirements, training programs, selected training cost data, and training personnel data; contains detailed class information on all courses taught and taken by Army personnel; and produces reports and analyses and can display selected data pertinent to training-requirements, programs, inputs, graduates, loads and associated information.

Training managers use this information to schedule classes, fill training seats, and train soldiers.

The major subsystems of the Army Training Requirements and Resources System include:

(a) The Mobilization Planning System is used to plan individual training requirements and training programs for all courses upon mobilization. The product of Mobilization Planning System is the Mobilization Army Program for Individual Training.

(b) The Structure Manning Decision Review (SMDR) is the process for reviewing training requirements and modifying them into executable training programs based on available resources. The product of the SMDR is the Army Program for Individual Training which is the mission and resourcing document used by schools and training centers to establish class schedule. Additionally, the Training Resource Arbitration Panel is used to adjust training programs during the execution year.

(c) The Student Trainee Management System—Enlisted manages initial entry training seats and provides projected graduate information to PERSCOM.

(d) The Quota Management System is used to allocate training quotas by class and redistribute those seats among components in order to maximize the fill of training seats.
