FORT MONROE, Va. (July 22, 2009) - TRADOC Enterprise Calendar (TEC) training was conducted here at the JROTC computer facility in the Cadet Command Headquarters.
The training was hosted by Jim Lynch, Acting Director, G-33, Current Operations. 50 primary and alternate TEC administrators attended from throughout TRADOC and from as far away as Fort Huachuca, Ariz. The computer facility allowed the trainees to participate in real-time, practical, hands-on training.
The training focused on how the TEC synchronizes the governance and structure contained in the TRADOC Campaign Plan, allows custom filtered views, and provides a Web-based tool for senior leaders to schedule and manage major activities.
The transition to the TEC has been a collaborative and coordinated effort with Deputy Commanding General of Initial Military Training, the U.S. Army Accessions Command, the Army Capabilities Integration Center, the Combined Arms Support Command, and the U.S. Army Combined Arms Center - all are TRADOC major subordinate organizations.
Supporting staff of the training included Milton Harper, Alan Fisher, and Phillip Alexander from the G-6, command, control, communications and computers, team that provided the technical and programming expertise required to develop this long-range planning tool. Janice Connolly received special recognition as the lead project officer for the TEC initiative.
A final training session is scheduled to be conducted at Fort Leavenworth, Kan. on Aug. 5. TRADOC MSOs and Schools and Centers of Excellence will then transition to the new TRADOC Enterprise Calendar on Aug. 10.
