The ATRRS is the Army's system of record for training program management. The ATRRS consists of a centralized training management database with computer Internet access for Army training ACOMs, DRUs, agencies, DOD, Army, other service, NATO and non-DOD schools, and training centers. Information on most individual training courses taught by or for Army personnel is in the ATRRS database. The ATRRS

a. Supports the Army Training Plan.

b. Provides accurate and responsive information for input into reports and budgets submitted to DOD and Congress.

c. Provides the capability to manage the Army's Institutional training program for all courses of instruction taught by DOD, DA, other services, NATO and non-DOD school systems.

d. Provides training management information to Army Staff agencies, training ACOMs or agencies, and Army schools and training centers.

e. Operates according to procedures stated in this regulation.

f. Supports both the peacetime and MOB training mission as directed by the Training Directorate, DCS, G-3/5/7.

2-2. Subsystems

The ATRRS includes the following subsystems

a. ATRRS Portals.

b. ATRRS Channels Directory.

c. Quota Management System (QMS).

2-3. Reports

The ATRRS provides users the capability to perform statistical analysis by running defined and undefined, formatted and unformatted reports on-line or in batch. ATRRS reports can be reviewed on-line, printed or downloaded to personal computers. The following is a partial list of reports from the ATRRS

a. The ARPRINT.

b. The Army Class Schedule Report.

c. Program element reports.

d. A course catalog with data displays on course scopes and course prerequisites.

e. Input and load reports.

f. Attrition reports.

g. Class schedule reports.

h. Class input and graduate update analysis reports.

i. Training program changes in the budget and/or execution years.

j. Man-years in training analysis reports.

k. Warrior Leader Course, Basic Noncommissioned Officers' Course (BNCOC), and Advanced Noncommissioned Officers' Course (ANCOC) Management.

l. Mobilization reports.

2-4. Individual training reports

a. The ARPRINT report identifies projected individual training requirements and programs for the Army, other services, other non-DA civilians, foreign military, and DOD agencies. The ARPRINT report

(1) Is the primary Army document showing valid training requirements and the associated training program for formal resident and distributed learning (dL) instruction

(2) Is based on the Army manpower requirements. A key product of the ARPRINT process is the officer and enlisted training baselines. These baselines constitute the affordable levels of training man-years. On the officer side, where accessions tend to be fixed and the size of the force is managed more through control of losses, IMT training (including the Basic Officer Leadership Course and follow-on courses) is included within the designated baseline for each FY. For the enlisted, where force size is controlled largely through accession management (therefore leading to wide fluctuations in IMT training volume), IMT basic training (BT), One Station Unit Training (OSUT), and advanced individual training (AIT), are excluded from the specified baselines.

(3) Matches, as closely as possible, the training loads contained within appropriate program budget guidance.

(4) Is used by the school system to allocate resources.

(5) Serves as the basis for determining frequency of training (class schedules).

b. The ARPRINT is the Army's mission and resourcing document to ACOMs, training agencies, and Army schools. Training ACOMs will ensure that enough classes are scheduled to meet the approved training program reflected in the ARPRINT. The ARPRINT will serve as the basis for class schedule to be updated for the current and budget FYs.

c. The ARPRINT provides all formal courses of instruction conducted by or for Army personnel and includes the training conducted by

(1) TRADOC.

(2) MEDCOM.

(3) FORSCOM.

(4) AMC.

(5) USASOC.

(6) TJAG.

(7) DINFOS.

(8) DLIFLC.

(9) NGIS.

(10) Army Force Management School.

(11) U.S. Army Pacific (USARPAC).

(12) U.S. Army Europe (USAREUR).

(13) Eighth U.S. Army (EUSA).

(14) The Inspector General.

(15) Other military services.

(16) On-the-job training when officially recognized by DCS, G-3/5/7.

(17) Other nonmilitary schools.

(18) Foreign military.

d. Training baselines are also part of the ARPRINT report.

(1) A training baseline is a target or recommended level of training expressed in man-years. Baselines are designated for each component of the force (AA, USAR, and ARNG), and for each subset (commissioned officer, warrant officer and enlisted). Base lines are built for each specific group and training cannot be swapped among groups. Special attention is focused on Active Army (AA) training (officer accession students and permanent change of station and temporary duty (TDY) enroute students) because in addition to comprising their respective baselines, they also constitute a portion of the individuals' account (trainees, transients, holdees, and students (TTHS)). As such, these personnel are not available for unit assignment. Fluctuations in their numbers may cause similar changes to the AA's operating strength. The inherent stability offered by the baseline concept, if adhered to, reduces the need for structure or other training changes by helping to maintain an operating strength consistent with planning levels. TDY and return students are not included in the individuals' account since attendance occurs while they are assigned to their current units. Projected training seats must be designated by mode of attendance and training cannot readily be exchanged between modes without affecting the balance between TTHS and the operating strength.

(2) Are developed in the annual ARPRINT process and constitute fiscally and operationally constrained levels of training for enlisted, warrant officer, and commissioned officer identities.

(3) Are a product of negotiation by representatives from DCS, G-1 Training; DCS, G-3/5/7 Force Management; DCS, G-3/5/7 Training; DCS, G-3/5/7 Readiness; DCS, G-1 Force Alignment; and DCS, G-1 Military Personnel Structure and Plans Division.

(4) Training baseline levels will be assessed during SMDR processes and TRAP reviews. From the SMDR perspective, they cannot be exceeded without approval of the Input to Training GOSC. However, if programmed training levels exceed established baselines during the execution or budget FY, the addition to the TTHS account must be forwarded to the next DCS, G-3/5/7 Force Structure Panel on POM build or to the Out-of-Cycle Committee for approval and assignment of a bill payer. The bill payer would ordinarily be either structure or other training.

(5) Training baselines will be developed for a 3-year period: execution year, budget year, and the first year of the POM.

(6) Review of training baseline projections will be accomplished through analysis of the TTHS forecasting system man-year projections. These projections include all student time, but the classroom time (training time) measured through the ATRRS database constitutes the bulk of student (or accession student) man-years. Increases in ATRRS non-unit training will ordinarily result in an increase in TTHS man-years. Decreases in ATRRS (provided they are reductions in seats likely to have been filled) will ordinarily produce the opposite effect. The TTHS impact on the operating strength can also be monitored through this system.

e. The MOB ARPRINT

(1) Is the primary planning document that provides individual training requirements (by course, by week) for a 52-week period beginning with MOB.

(2) Is a time-phased plan for expansion, continuation, or phase-out of training base courses upon MOB.

(3) Is based on the Army trained manpower shortfall of fillers or replacements required to maintain a prescribed level of organization during post-MOB, as developed by U.S. Army Human Resources Command-Alexandria using the Mobilization Manpower Analysis System (MOBMAN).

(4) Is used to develop training base expansion plans, training strategies, MOB resource constraint information, and to facilitate transition to revised levels of training upon MOB.

2-5. Development of training requirements

Training requirements will be developed according to the following:

a. General requirements. Individual training requirements will be developed and entered directly into the ATRRS database according to the procedures described in the ATRRS Portals Help page on the ATRRS Web site ( http://www.atrrs.army.mil ). Training requirements may be entered into ATRRS only by the agency responsible for developing those requirements.

b. Enlisted requirements. The IMT requirements developed by Army Human Resources Command, USARC, and NGB will be based on the approved manpower program identified by DCS, G-1 (DAPE-MPT). These training requirements will serve to update the ARPRINT. These are developed by the following automated models and are subject to verification by DCS, G-1 (DAPE-MPT)

(1) Army Strength Training Requirements Model (ASTRM) and MOS Level System (MOSLS) (systems used by the AA).

(2) Automated Requirements Model - Reserve (ARM-R) (system used by the USAR).

(3) Automated Requirements Model - Guard (ARM-G) (system used by the ARNG).

c. Course structure changes. The IMT course structure changes (length and AIT versus OSUT) will be validated by the training manager and sent to HQDA (DAPE-MPT), Washington, DC 20310-0300, not later than 1 July, prior to SMDR.

d. Validation of course numbers. All training ACOMs will validate course numbers by FY within ATRRS not later than 1 June each year. Course number changes will be kept to a minimum and will be identified in the Course Change Report and Course Number Change Report.

e. Adding and deleting courses. The latest addition or deletion of MOS, ASI, and area of concentration (AOC) courses will be based on DA Pam 611-21 . Training ACOMs and HQDA (DAPE-MPT) will delete obsolete MOS codes. Training ACOMs and agencies will add new courses and delete obsolete courses by 1 June.

f. Notional courses. On occasion, a skill requirement and associated training requirement may be identified for which no approved POI, course title, or number exists. Based on approval by the DCS, G-3/5/7 (DAMO-TR), the DCS, G-1 (DAPE-MPT) will notify the appropriate training ACOM to add notional courses to ATRRS as necessary to reflect projected (undocumented) MOS restructure and force modernization actions. The DCS, G-1 (DAPE-MPT) will add notional courses to ATRRS as required.

2-6. Solicitation of training requirements

a. The solicitation of Army personnel to attend training or other than Army personnel to attend courses conducted by the Army will be accomplished via the TACITS subsystem of ATRRS.

b. Training Requirements Office, DCS, G-1 (DAPE-MPT) is the executive agent for individual training solicitation within the DA.

c. Training Plans Branch, Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations and Plans, AHRC (AHRC-PLT-T) is the DCS, G-1 operational manager for individual training solicitations process.

d. The TACITS surveys will be updated and placed on the ATRRS Internet home page annually. The primary individual training solicitation survey will be updated and placed on the ATRRS Internet home page in March each year. This solicitation will include all the courses of training, for which the training requirement is determined by solicitation that are attended by Army personnel (AA, USAR, and ARNG); military or civilian, regardless of the training provider; or all courses conducted by the Army that are attended by other than Army personnel.

e. The TACITS will be prepared and updated and placed on the ATRRS Internet home page by HRC-A.

f. The HRC-A will receive requests from non-DOD agencies for attendance at TRADOC service schools for the POM years and aid those agencies in participation in TACITS.

g. Courses that must come in line in the upcoming execution or budget years that miss the two solicitation windows will be treated as an out-of-cycle solicitation. Procedures for approval of an out-of-cycle solicitation are as follows:

(1) Request approved and signed by CDR or commandant of respective school and sent to training ACOM for approval.

(2) Request approved and signed by the training ACOM (first general officer in the chain of command such as that ACOM's Assistant Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations or Assistant Deputy Chief of Staff for Personnel) and forwarded to DCS, G-1 (DAPE-MPT) for approval.

(3) Approval or disapproval by HQDA (DAPE-MPT).

(4) Approval returned to training ACOM for field solicitation. Distribution to the field will contain a statement that solicitation has been approved by DCS, G-1. Returns from the field will be forwarded to DCS, G-1 to be posted to ATRRS and addressed at a TRAP. No manpower bills will be paid by HQDA as a result of an out-of-cycle solicitation.

h. New courses not addressed in the TACITS solicitation process will not be addressed at the SMDR, but may be addressed through the TRAP process.

2-7. Structure and manning decision review

a. Overview. The SMDR is designed to validate Army training requirements and subsequently reconcile those requirements to an affordable, acceptable, and executable training program. The SMDR will be conducted annually during September/October. Training requirements will be initially established for the third POM year, validated for the second POM year (the primary focus of the SMDR), and fine-tuned for the first POM year.

o. Verification. During the SMDR, manning and associated institutional training requirements are verified. Input agencies will be challenged based on prior-year use of specific training courses. Unless the input agency can show force structure changes and valid methods to improve show rates, training requirements requested will be reduced. Training requirements for each course are then compared with available training resources. Overages and shortages of manpower (military by MOS, AOC, ASI and SQI; civilian by grade), equipment, and facilities are identified. Any course that lacks sufficient resources to train its full training requirement is termed "constrained." Either additional training resources are provided for each constrained course or the training program for that course is adjusted. The result is a recommended training program. Upon completion of the SMDR, decision briefings will be presented to a COC and General Officer Council to resolve issues where training courses are constrained. The final training program for a given FY is published in the ARPRINT and serves as the basis for the development of class schedules. The ARPRINT indicates both the training requirement and the programmed number so that constraints can be audited.

2-8. Training Resources Arbitration Panel

a. The purpose of the TRAP is to manage and implement budget and execution year training program adjustments to those programs developed during the SMDR process, and to identify and resource the associated personnel, equipment, facility and finances. The results of the TRAP impact directly upon manning and distribution of the forces, MOS readiness and end strength levels through the availability of the correct quantity of training in the correct MOS/AOC for specific agencies or commands. This process manages MOS readiness, promotion requirements and personnel training needs of the force and the flow of trainees and students through the institutional training base. The TRAP is currently separated into two major areas, one which deals with the AA/DOD school systems and the second that deals with the reserve component schools (Reserve Training Institution-TRAP).

b. The Chief, Training Requirements Division (DAPE-MPT), the DCS, G-1 and the Chief, Institutional Training Division (DAMO-TRI), G-3/5/7 co-chair the AA and DOD TRAPs with the following participants as members

(1) DCS, G-8 (voting).

(2) ABO (voting).

(3) OACSIM/IMCOM (voting).

(4) HRC.

(5) OCAR/HRC-STL.

(6) USARC.

(7) NGB.

(8) TRADOC.

(9) FORSCOM.

(10) AMEDDC&S, MEDCOM.

(11) TJAG.

(12) Armed Forces Information Services.

(13) NGIS.

(14) USASOC.

(15) USAREC

(16) Other Services and requesting agencies.

c. The following is a general schematic for the TRAP process:

(1) A TRAP is initiated when changes to training programs are required. The requested training program changes should normally not include classes that are within 120 days from the date of the Action Officer TRAP meeting, unless HQDA (DCS, G-1, DMPM) has approved an exception to this timeframe.

(2) The goal is that both the AIT and Enlisted/Officer Professional Development AA/DOD TRAPs for a new FY will be held separately one month prior to the SMDR. The pre-SMDR TRAP will consider "show stopper" changes to the execution year training program and those changes critical to building the out-year programs.

(3) Every TRAP is assigned a number in ATRRS and a schedule of events is set in motion. The sessions are numbered and divided into course types or are for special requirements, Global War on Terrorism, other services, DLI, etc. The first TRAP date is the "requested input due" date. Requesting agencies must place all their requested changes into ATRRS by the due date and must also identify justification for their training program changes by training group and impacts if changes are not approved.

(4) The DCS, G-1 (DAPE-MPT) will "lock" the TRAP session at the "requested input due" when date shown in ATRRS is reached. No further increases or decreases to training programs will be accepted in that TRAP, unless approved by DCS, G-1 and the appropriate training ACOM. The G-1 will coordinate as appropriate with HQDA staff.

(5) After the TRAP session is locked the training ACOM (or DRU if responsible for training, for example, MEDCOM) provides resource analysis for personnel (manpower) to DCS, G-1 (DAPE-MPT). The TRADOC provides USARC potential manpower requirements.

(6) The DAMO-TRI and IMCOM provide the per capita training costs using the ITRM and Cost Estimating Relationship models and any other associated training resource requirements to DCS, G-1 for TRAP COC.

(7) Additionally, the training ACOM (or DRU) will provide to DAPE-MPT a schedule that reflects when training resource requirements (funding, manpower, and equipment) must arrive at the training location. The training ACOM will provide resource analysis for:

(a) one-time costs (for example, contractors),

(b) Class VII equipment requirements,

(c) ammunition, and

(d) will coordinate with garrison/IMCOM to provide facilities costs, dates of installation support costs, and other cost requirements.

(8) The HRC-A will provide to DCS, G-1 and TRADOC, G-3/5/7 the capability of supporting the manpower requirements.

(9) The USARC provides reserve manpower supportability analysis results to Training ACOMs, who will pass the information to DCS, G-1 (DAPE-MPT) and DCS, G-3/5/7 (DAMO-TR).

(10) The training ACOM will analyze Army civilian employees and contractor capabilities and costs.

(11) The IMCOM, DCS, G-8, DAMO-TR, will provide their capability to support training requirement.

(12) The training ACOM will re-cost any unsupplied equipment for commercial off-the-shelf or commercial purchase.

(13) When all of the above analysis and assessments are complete, the DCS, G-1 will conduct the action-officer TRAP meeting.

(14) After the action-officer meeting, the DAMO-TRI and IMCOM may re-run per capita costs.

(15) The TRAP COC is conducted to adjudicate resourcing of TRAP. Input agencies that have outstanding training program issues will provide all necessary briefing materials to DCS, G-1 (DAPE-MPT) two days prior to the COC meeting. These materials will include the reason(s) for the training program increase, current and projected fill statistics, and the impact(s) if increase is not provided. The TRAP COC members will determine if they need to convene a General Officer TRAP Council (see para 1-7 , above).

(a) Voting members of the COC are DCS, G-1 (DAPE-MPT) (chair); DCS, G-3/5/7 (DAMO-TR); DCS, G-8, ABO and IMCOM.

(b) Participating members of the COC are HRC; OCAR/HRC-STL; ARNG, and appropriate training ACOM headquarters.

(c) The DCS, G-3/5/7 in coordination with DCS, G-1 will determine if training requirements will be resourced at 100 percent or if they will be constrained in accordance with Army priorities. Costs may be re-run.

(16) The DCS, G-8 will brief TRAP equipment requirements to Army Requirements and Resourcing Board COC for information/decision for resourcing when there are excessive equipment requirements that require redistribution of resources away from the warfight.

(17) All approved instructor/military personnel changes will be identified in an executive change memorandum (ECM) composed by DCS, G-1 (DAPE-MPT) and forwarded to the appropriate component (HRC-A, USAR, ARNG) for execution. This memorandum is the component's authority to redistribute undocumented personnel requirements. The component will identify and notify DCS, G-1 (DAPE-MPT) and HQ-TRADOC, of all new military personnel positions by name, social security number (SSN) and report and end date. Changes must be handled "off-line" because The Army Authorization Documents System documents cannot be changed to accommodate training program changes. Changes to personnel levels will be accommodated by manpower trade-offs within each ACOM, as identified in the ECM, provided a trade-off is available.

(18) Out-of-cycle training program changes not submitted in a TRAP must be submitted through DAPE-MPT, who will coordinate as appropriate and forward to the appropriate training ACOM. If the training program can be approved within current ACOM resources then the training ACOM and DAPE-MPT will document program changes on ATRRS.

2-9. Reserve Training Institution-Training Resources Arbitration Panel

a. The purpose of the RTI-TRAP is to manage changes to all USAR and ARNG schoolhouse courses during the budget and execution years.

b. The DCS, G-1 RTI-TRAP manager (DAPE-MPT) directs and oversees the RTI-TRAP at the HQDA level. Participants include representatives from the USARC and NGB.

c. The RTI-TRAPs are scheduled twice a year, with approvals occurring in approximately June and December. Numerous administrative RTI-TRAPs may be conducted at the discretion of the RTI-TRAP manager in order to accommodate mission changes which may occur at any time.

d. For each RTI-TRAP, the requested program change window is open for a minimum of two weeks, schools address requested changes for two weeks, USARC/Divisions (Institutional Training)/NGB review requested changes and the school's draft schedule for one week, and final HQDA approval and quota/schedule update processing occurs for approximately two weeks.

e. For RTI-TRAPs, the following procedure is followed by all participants in order to ensure the timely processing of all training program change requests:

(1) Input agencies must post their requested training program changes by 0800 hours on the due date announced on the ATRRS system message. Requested training program changes will exclude classes that start within 90 days from the date of the HQDA RTI-TRAP close date, unless the HQDA RTI-TRAP manager approves an exception to this timeframe. The intent of this restriction is to ensure that the student will receive sufficient notification lead time in order to meet the class arrival date.

(2) School RTI-TRAP personnel will review changes and make adjustments to class schedules or to RTI-TRAP school draft screen as appropriate. Schools may also specify resource constraints or comment on why requested changes cannot be met.

(3) The USARC and NGB review and evaluate both requested changes and class schedule adjustments. They have authority to modify requested changes submitted by input agencies to ensure that requests accurately reflect their readiness needs. They also ensure that schools have addressed requested changes.

(4) Upon notification to the RTI-TRAP manager that all reviews and adjustments are complete, the training program approvals are posted, class schedules are adjusted as required and seat quotas are allocated on ATRRS. An ATRRS system message then announces completion of the RTI-TRAP and specifies the next RTI-TRAP processing timeline.

f. The first RTI-TRAP of the FY is held in conjunction with preparation for the upcoming SMDR. At a working RTI-TRAP conducted during the Regional Training Coordination Conference, USARC and NGB representatives review requested RTI-TRAP changes and draft schedule adjustments. The RTI-TRAP requested changes are finalized at the follow-on National Training Coordination Conference. When the HQDA RTI-TRAP manager is notified that the first RTI-TRAP has been coordinated and finalized on ATRRS, the RTI-TRAP is approved and class schedules and quotas are distributed.

g. After the final RTI-TRAP is conducted for the FY, any additional training program changes must be submitted through USARC, NGB, or HRC-A to the DCS, G-1 RTI-TRAP manager (DAPE-MPT), who will consider an off-line RTI-TRAP and post approved training program changes to ATRRS.

2-10. Analysis of Change Cell

a. The Analysis of Change Cell (AOCC) is an ad hoc group reporting directly to the Input to Training GOSC. Its purpose is to address issues impacting training in the budget and execution years that are more expansive than can be addressed in the TRAP or SMDR. The group also makes recommendations to the Input to Training GOSC to assist in exercising its role in resolving critical issues in the input to training arena. These issues include, but are not limited to, changes in training loads generated as a result of changes in current authorization documents, Army policies, current manpower inventory, projected gains and losses, training attrition rates, training strategies and availability of resources.

b. The AOCC will meet on an "as needed" basis. Co-chairs will be notified that an AOCC is required to address a specific issue(s).

c. The AOCC is co-chaired by the Director of Military Personnel Management (DAPE-MP) and the Director of Training (DAMO-TR). Additional members include: Director of Plans and Resources (DAPE-PR); Director of Force Management (DAMO-FM); Chief, OCAR; and Director, ARNG. Regular advisory members include representatives of the training ACOMs (TRADOC, MEDCOM, AMC), as well as representatives from HRC.

2-11. Scheduling of classes

Class schedules will be produced within the following timeframes

a. For IMT MOS training schools, class schedules will be developed prior to 1 July for the upcoming budget year. (For example, on 1 July 2007, schedules for FY 09 are required). Minor adjustments may have to be made at a later time. Those schedules will be entered into ATRRS database according to procedures described in the ATRRS Portals help page on the ATRRS Web page ( http://www.atrrs.army.mil ). Schools and activities without ATRRS access will submit class schedules prior to 1 July to the appropriate training ACOM unless otherwise designated. Submission of class schedules will be according to the guidance from the training ACOM. The ACOM will review the ATRRS database to determine the extent to which the programmed requirement is being supported. The ACOMs will notify HQDA (DAPE-MPT), Washington, DC 20310-0300 of any schedule shortfall that affects Army training missions. The ACOMs will take appropriate action to resolve class schedule discrepancies prior to 15 July.

b. By 15 July, HQDA (DAPE-MPT) will provide HRC with class schedules for loading onto REQUEST. Later changes will be based on significant changes identified by DCS, G-1. Once loaded on REQUEST, reallocation of seats for in-service and other services cannot be accomplished without HQDA (DAPE-MPT) approval.

c. Class schedules for all other training not designated as IMT MOS training will be developed within 40 working days of final ARPRINT availability for the upcoming budget year (for example, in the ARPRINT approved 1 December 2007, the schedules for FY 09 are required.) These schedules will be entered into the ATRRS database according to procedures described in the ATRRS Portals help page on the ATRRS Web page. Schools and activities without ATRRS access will submit class schedules to the appropriate ACOM. Submission of class schedules will be according to guidance from the training ACOM. The ACOMs will review the ATRRS database 40 working days after ARPRINT availability to determine the extent to which the programmed requirement is supported. The ACOMs will notify HQDA (DAPE-MPT), Washington, DC 20310-0300 of any schedule shortfalls that affect the Army's training mission. The ACOMs will take action to resolve class schedule discrepancies within 50 working days of ARPRINT availability.

2-12. Interservice Training Review Organization

a. The ITRO is an organization of military services set up to improve the cost effectiveness and efficiency through course consolidations or collocations and standardizations.

b. There are three types of courses under ITRO: collocated, consolidated, and quota.

(1) Collocated. A course used by one or more services on another service's installation with shared classroom facilities and equipment. Training policies and curriculum are determined by the host service. Instructor requirements are calculated by the participating services and provided to meet their needs.

(2) Consolidated. A course consisting of a curriculum developed by two or more services. The course faculty is normally multi-service. The curriculum may be common throughout or consist of a common core plus service-unique tracks. Training policy directives and materials are determined by mutual agreement among the services. Instructor requirements are calculated on an ITRO formula that fair shares the requirements among the participating services.

(3) Quota. A course managed, controlled, and conducted by one service that is used by another service. Participating services do not have curriculum input, and use the course exactly as presented by the host service. Instructor requirements are calculated using the host-service formulas.

Chapter 3
Army Training Requirements and Resources System Subsystems

3-1. Quota Management System

The QMS is a subsystem of ATRRS used to support training execution management of all training not designated as IMT. The QMS provides an interactive means for entering, updating, and reviewing information relating to all these courses.

a. Policy.

(1) Inputs and outputs on a by-name/SSN basis will be posted to ATRRS not later than 2 working days after the start or end date of the class. Two exceptions are

(a) Input and graduate information for on-site courses will be posted not later than 5 days after course completion unless prior coordination has been made with DCS, G-1 (DAPE-MPT).

(b) Input and graduate information for RTI courses will be posted not later than 7 days after course completion unless prior coordination has been made with HQDA (DAPE-MPT).

(2) The QMS will be the vehicle to handle quota exchanges among components.

(3) Schools have 5 working days after TRAP changes have been posted to make appropriate class schedule changes in ATRRS.

(4) All reservations are to be posted to ATRRS not later than 45 days (DLI, 30 days) prior to class start date or quotas will be made available to any quota agency on a first-come basis. For situations where actual names are not known 45 or 30 days (DLI only) prior to start date, holds can be placed on quotas until names can be substituted. Holds not changed to valid names 15 days prior to class start will be automatically dropped and seats will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

(5) Schools/proponents will not directly solicit for course participants unless preauthorized by the training ACOM, quota agency, DCS, G-1 and DCS, G-3/5/7

(6) The responsibility for arranging quota exchanges lies with the individual quota managers/agencies, with the training ACOM as approval authority, unless precluded by course prerequisites or Army/school policy.

(7) Component no-show rates will be based on allocated quotas versus actual inputs.

(8) For courses where the student population is not HQDA selected, vacancies created by no-shows in classes may be filled by CDRs from the local installation/tenant population only. Appropriate by-name/SSN information must be added to ATRRS for these individuals. Soldiers must have valid orders.

b. Process. The QMS reservation system will adhere to the following basic procedures. Following the SMDR, class schedules will be loaded into ATRRS by proponent schools, this includes class schedules for other service schools. After training ACOM approval of class schedules, an automated procedure will be run (at training ACOM discretion) that fairly shares quotas among input agencies based on their approved annual program. These quotas will then be reviewed and fine-tuned or adjusted by the training ACOM. Reservations will be made by the input agencies based on allocated quotas by entering name, rank or grade, job series for Army civilian employees, SSN, gender, address, and quota source and component code for each attendee in most cases not later than 45 days (DLI, 30 days) prior to start of class. The proponent school in conjunction with the ACOM may determine whether to "non-conduct" a class if the number of reservations and waits do not at least equal the minimum class size. Training ACOMs must coordinate with training input agencies prior to final decision to non-conduct a class. Quota agencies may release or request quotas any time until 45 days (DLI, 30 days) prior to the start of a class. Any quota not filled 45 days (DLI, 30 days) prior to a class start will be made available to any personnel in a "wait" status by priority for that class on a first-in, first-out basis. If any quotas still remain, they are available to any input agency on a first-come, first-served basis. When the student physically reports for the class, the school must post ATRRS not later than 2 working days after the start of the class. If a student fails to graduate, the output status code and reason for attrition will be posted, and finally all graduates are posted not later than two days after end of class. If a student is scheduled for follow-on classes, as identified in ATRRS, QMS will link these courses. If a student fails or graduates from a preceding or prerequisite course, QMS will cancel or confirm the reservation to the follow-on course. ATRRS will provide data for updating the enlisted and officer personnel files for Army components.

c. Automated order of merit list. There is an order of merit list for BNCOC/combat support-combat service support (CS-CSS), and ANCOC. On a quarterly basis, an extract of the enlisted master file is received that produces a prioritized order of merit list for BNCOC/CS-CSS and ANCOC for AA Soldiers. Reservations are generated for training based on priorities and quotas that have been allocated by quota source.

3-2. Mobilization Planning System

a. The MPS provides a peacetime planning system for MOB training. The HQDA (DAPE-MPT) is the proponent for MPS and for planning the operation of ATRRS during MOB. Mobilization planning considers the requirements for trained manpower and the emergency surge capacity of the Army's training base.

b. During peacetime, MPS is used to conduct planning for MOB. The MPS programs student input required to meet MOB output requirements, and uses MOB course class size and course length in computing throughput. Development of MOB program of instruction is the responsibility of proponent schools. Army schools and MOB training installations schedule course inputs in MPS according to current training capacity.

c. Upon MOB, MPS planning data becomes the basis for transition to post-MOB operations of the training base. Courses terminate or convert to MOB program of instruction according to criteria established by DCS, G-3/5/7 (DAMO-TR) and new class schedules will be established in ATRRS to accommodate MOB output requirements. The MOB operation of ATRRS will differ only slightly from peacetime operations.

d. The MOB ARPRINT establishes the MOB individual training mission and is the primary planning document and most important program generated by MPS. The MOB ARPRINT time-phases the number of students to be scheduled for each course at each training site during MOB. The MOB ARPRINT considers attrition and training time in the computation of required course inputs. The MOB ARPRINT is designed to simulate production of the training base to produce trained manpower at required levels as early as possible after MOB by reconciling training capability with training requirements. Training capability and resource constraints that impact on training capability are identified and documented in MPS for each course during the MOB ARPRINT training capability analysis accomplished by schools or ATCs.

e. Post-MOB training requirements are reflected in the MOB ARPRINT and are based on a HQDA projection of Army trained manpower requirements by specialty and grade, as produced by DCS, G-1 using the MOBMAN modeling process.

(1) The MOBMAN requirements represent the number of trained personnel, by MOS, required to meet the manpower shortfall after all manpower assets have been depleted using grade and skill substitution criteria.

(2) The HRC will produce for the current year and the last year of each POM the time-phased Post-Mobilization Training Base Output Requirements required to fill and sustain the total force over the first 180 days of MOB.

3-3. Student Trainee Management System-Enlisted

The STRAMS-E is a subsystem of ATRRS, managed by HRC-A, and allows trainers, student processors, and personnel service centers (PSCs) the capability to track and manage individuals by name and SSN from the time they first enter the Army up to and including their first duty assignment.

a. The STRAMS-E integrates the process of personnel and training management for IMT, for the three Army military components: AA, USAR, and the ARNG.

b. The function of STRAMS-E is to manage IMT for all components, while in training. Individual's personnel and training information is captured from other sources and made available to the processing centers that validate the data and provides additional data as may be needed. Information is collected and validated to ensure all necessary training reservations are made so that students may fulfill their enlistment commitment and further allow HRC to issue the first duty assignment.

c. Details regarding STRAMS-E responsibilities can be found in the ATRRS Portals navigation documents (Portals help on the Web) or AR 612-201 .

(1) The DCS, G-1, as overall ATRRS system manager, provides hardware and software support. The DCS, G-1 also publishes specific policy guidance on use of ATRRS and determines who will use what displays, how, and when; ensures that guidance includes provisions for non-STRAMS-E managed personnel who are attending IMT training; and provides systematic analysis of input to training management trends.

(2) Processing centers provide data input to ATRRS as Soldiers process into BT or OSUT and AIT with follow-on training. Anytime an IMT duty or training status changes, a STRAMS-E update is required (for example, holdover, recycle, discharge, inactive, and so on). The ATRRS reacts to these transactions by canceling reservations or at times rescheduling for a later class, initiating trainee discharge, reclassification, and so on. With each update, HRC is notified of the student's status including their end-of-training date, and especially available-for-assignment date.

(3) The HRC-A, as STRAMS-E functional manager, monitors data submission and quality. monitors AIT movement, and makes adjustments as necessary. The STRAMS-E updates will determine available-for-assignment date used when first duty assignment is issued.

(4) The training ACOM establishes a mechanism to review and validate that processing centers are inputting data in a timely, accurate manner according to procedures herein and associated regulations.

Chapter 4
Training Attrition Management

4-1. Introduction

Training attrition rates are a function of actual input versus graduation data. The training attrition rate is the percentage of students or trainees who enter into a course of instruction and do not successfully complete the training. The training attrition rate does not reflect the impact or magnitude of recycles, nor does it describe in any way the reasons for the attrition. This input and graduation data is entered into the ATRRS by schools, training centers, and training agencies. (See the glossary for the definition of training attrition and training attrition terms.) The ATRRS computes attrition rates at MOS and course levels of detail, by

a. Total course attrition for all courses of instruction. This historical course training attrition rate is used by managers at all levels in computing training loads, projecting course level training requirements, establishing prerequisites, developing POIs, and computing resource requirements.

b. Component and gender for enlisted IMT MOS courses. This training attrition rate is used by managers at all levels to project requirements, establish prerequisites, develop POIs, and compute resource requirements.

c. Historical input and graduate data. This information is entered and stored in the ATRRS at a level of detail that allows an attrition rate to be computed for a component for all other courses managed at the class level of detail. Army school and training center CDRs and commandants will ensure timely gathering of attrition data and accurate data posting.

4-2. Historical attrition computation

a. Training attrition rates are computed within ATRRS based on a grouping of students or trainees who are enrolled in classes that have a scheduled completion date within a historical moving 12-month window. Using a full year's worth of statistical data provides a large enough sample to be representative of the course and eliminates seasonal fluctuations. The graduates for the class are compared with the inputs in the same class.

b. The attrition formula expressed as a percentage is



Figure 4-1. Attrition formula


Students or trainees who recycled are counted as an input only one time, and that is in the class in which they are originally entered. Therefore, for purposes of this formula, inputs are defined as new inputs to the course of instruction, and do not include those who recycled in.

c. The 12-month historical window is computed based on a 4-quarter moving average. The attrition rate is based on the 4-quarter average prior to the current quarter . Class statistics are grouped into quarter groups based on the scheduled completion date of the course. The graduates for the class are compared with the inputs in the same class. Therefore, second quarter attrition rates for FY 08 would be based on classes ending in the last two quarters of FY 07 and the first two quarters of FY 08. The formula for 2nd quarter FY 08 attrition for an AIT class would be



Figure 4-2. Attrition formula 2nd quarter


d. The 24-month historical window is used for BT attrition and is computed based on an 8-quarter moving average, with weights of 70 percent for the most recent 4 quarters and 30 percent for the oldest 4 quarters; for example, second quarter attrition rates for BT for FY 08 would be based on classes ending in the last two quarters of FY 06, all of FY 07, and the first 2 quarters of FY 08. The BT attrition rates for each AA IMT MOS are provided quarterly to HRC. The formula for 2nd quarter FY 08 attrition is



Figure 4-3. Basic training attrition formula


4-3. Adjusted attrition computation

Adjusted course attrition rates for the AA are computed and distributed to HRC on a quarterly basis for use in programming and budget projections. These rates are passed to projection models, currently ASTRM and MOSLS. Other input agencies can review their course attrition rates in the reports generator on ATRRS. As necessary, HQDA (DAPE-MPT), in coordination with training ACOMs, further reviews and adjusts those rates to account for

a. Course management actions such as changes in POI or course prerequisites.

b. Estimating a projected attrition rate for a new course based on historical rates of other courses with similar prerequisites and standards.

4-4. Attrition rates

The policies for posting input and graduate data are

a. Schools and ATCs that have ATRRS access are required to report course input and graduate data on all courses managed on ATRRS.

b. Schools without access to ATRRS will send a written report of course input and graduate date, by component and gender, to the ACOM. The ACOM will enter the data into ATRRS. The HRC, AHRC-EPT will ensure that Army input and graduate data for other service courses having Army input is posted to ATRRS.
