Web Base Program Tracks, Validates National Guard, Reserves
Last year, more than 19,000 Reserve Component Soldiers, under the guidance and oversight of First Army Division East, mobilized, trained and deployed worldwide. Tracking and maintaining all the required Army training plus the required First Army mobilization training wasn't possible using the current software platform. Soldiers at the 177th Armored Brigade, however, didn't let that stand in their way.
The Digital Training Management System is the system of record for all training data that must be recorded and maintained in this system per Army regulation 350-1. In August 2011, Col. Dale Kuehl, the 177th AR Bde commander at Camp Shelby Joint Forces Training Center, directed his validation team to start using the Digital Training Management System, not only to track training, but as a validation tool as well.
"DTMS is a web base software application that implements the Army field manual training for full spectrum operations," said Capt. Yolanda McBride, validation team member. "With DTMS, the unit commander is able to plan, schedule and manage training for his unit."
