The U.S. Army Combat Readiness Center (USACRC) recently released three new courses that streamline the safety training requirement for Soldiers and Civilians.

The Risk Management (RM) Basic Soldier and RM Basic Civilian courses were combined due to similarities in content and to streamline requirements. In addition, the combined RM Basic Course includes doctrine changes, course requirement changes, updated media and tools, and will comply with the USACRC Distributed Learning Lifecycle Plan. This course is required for all Soldiers (Active and Reserve Components) and Army Civilians to be completed within 60 days of arrival at their first operational assignment or Civilian employment. By taking the RM Basic Course, students will gain an understanding of these processes and how they mitigate the risk of catastrophic loss of equipment and injury to personnel during day-to-day operations.

The Unit Safety Officer Course (USOC) is a combination of the Additional Duty Safety Officer Course, the Collateral Duty Safety Officer Course and the previous USOC into a new 20-hour course. The course specifically targets U.S. Army active-duty Soldiers, U.S. Army National Guard, U.S. Army Reserve Commissioned Officers, Warrant Officers, Enlisted and Department of the Army Civilians designated by the commander to administer the Army Safety and Occupational Health Program within their respective units of assignment and/or employment.

The RM Operational Course focuses on analysis of RM in support of the Operations Process and Military Decision-Making Process (MDMP). The course specifically targets senior Army leaders who have a critical role in institutionalizing a strong safety culture by integrating RM into the operational environment and the MDMP to eliminate loss, damage or injury to personnel and equipment. The course also fulfills one of the prerequisite requirements for the Civilian Advanced Course, Command and General Staff School Intermediate Level Education, the Warrant Officer Intermediate Level Education and the Warrant Officer Advanced Level Education.
