In January, CAC-T's Training Management Directorate (TMD) released the Digital Training Management System (DTMS) Training and Readiness Dashboards in support of the SecArmy's vision to reduce requirements on echelons at brigade and below. Since then, TMD refined the Dashboards' functionality and accompanying tutorials, and published the first three of eleven new tutorials designed to support Dashboard users.
Major General Gervais, the Deputy Commanding General for the Combined Arms Center-Training (DCG - CAC-T), introduces the new tutorial series in the opening of the Training and Readiness Dashboard Overview.
When complete, the Army Training Network (ATN) DTMS Knowledge Base will host both Audio/Video Self-Paced and Slide Based Tutorials that walk users through the different elements of the Dashboards. In order to get the tutorials to the field as quickly as possible, TMD will release them as they are completed. The first three Audio/Video Tutorials posted to the DTMS Knowledge Base are: The Training and Readiness Dashboards Overview, the Mission Essential Task List (METL) Tool and the Collective Live Fire Tool tutorials.
Eight additional tutorials covering Individual, Crew Served and Platform Weapons Management are in the production process and will be released shortly. The last two products for development and production are the Recording of a Soldier APFT, and H/W &BF. These should be available on ATN by mid-April.
TMD will post all related tutorials to the DTMS Knowledge Base Training and Readiness Dashboards page: https://atn.army.mil/DTMSDashboard.
