TRADOC and HRC are eliminating the requirement for redundant manual training data entry into both Digital Training Management System (DTMS) and eMILPO by establishing an interconnection to automate the transfer of unit-managed Soldier data. This action is being fast-tracked for completion and supports the SecArmy’s vision to reduce requirements on echelons at brigade and below.
“Any time we can eliminate redundant reporting it is great news to our tactical units” said COL Stuart Smith, Director of the Training Management Directorate (TMD). “This initiative will provide units and command teams more efficient and accurate processing of Soldier training readiness and promotion data.”
Beginning Jan. 11, 2019, Soldier training data used by HRC for Soldier Record Briefs as well as Promotion Point Worksheets for E4 – E5 (i.e., APFT score, AR 600-9 testing result, and individual weapon qualification) will be received electronically from DTMS. Once established, HRC will disable training data entry capability in eMILPO.
To support the upcoming change, units should immediately begin reviewing all Soldier training readiness data (APFT, AR 600-9 Height / Weight, and individual weapons qualifications) in DTMS to ensure data is correct. During the transition, it is recommended that commands have trained S-1 personnel use eMILPO to verify the accuracy and completeness of data received from DTMS. Since it is assumed that some units may have recorded Soldier APFT, AR 600-9 Height / Weight and Individual weapons qualification in either DTMS or eMILPO, but perhaps not both, ATMS and eMILPO personnel are reviewing Soldier records and reconciling data between systems prior to implementation.
