The Army Distributed Learning Program

What is it? The mission of The Army Distributed Learning Program (TADLP) is to improve readiness by the delivery of standardized individual, collective, and self-development training to Soldiers and units anytime and anyplace.

What has the Army done? The focus of TADLP is to maintain readiness, provide training, and support Training Transformation and Army Force Generation (ARFORGEN) requirements. The primary components are courseware, technological infrastructure, learning management system, and deployable digital training campuses.

What efforts does the Army plan to continue in the future? TADLP is introducing a task-based product initiative that will have a significant impact on Army training in support of Transformation and the Army Force Generation model. With task-based training, the program provides Warfighters with the critical individual combat tasks that support the unit Mission Essential Task List, new operational tasks, professional military education, and job qualification requirements.

Why is this important to the Army? TADLP delivers high quality task-based training products to Warfighters anytime, anywhere, while deployed, or at home station. As we move toward the ARFORGEN model, distributed learning is a primary means of maintaining operational readiness of units. Distributed learning enables higher levels of unit readiness and organizational performance, standardizes training across the Army, facilitates flow of Soldier competency data to leaders, and improves career planning capabilities.
