approval. Once approved by the commanding
officer, this consolidated package will become the
unit long-range training plan.
When you receive your units copy of the long-
range training plan, provide a copy of applicable
portions to each training group. Since the training
officer keeps the units long-range training plan
up to date, provide him or her with updated
information periodically at the Planning Board
for Training. The long-range training plan, when
updated regularly, provides the unit with a
dynamic management tool.
SHORT-RANGE TRAINING PLAN
The short-range training plan contains the
planning and scheduling of training. Effective
scheduling requires careful attention by the chain
of command to minimize conflicts and to
maximize opportunities. The short-range training
plan should include the following information:
1. The Quarterly Employment Schedule (simi-
lar to fig. 5-6)
2. The Quarterly Training Plan (similar to fig.
3. The Monthly Training Plan (similar to fig.
4. The Weekly Training Schedule (similar to
Quarterly Training Plan
During the Planning Board for Training in the
month before an upcoming quarter, the training
officer distributes copies of the Quarterly
Employment Schedule to the board members.
Using this schedule as a guide, the Planning Board
for Training develops broad unit training plans
for the upcoming quarter. The purpose of this
Quarterly Training Plan is to make training
groups aware of unit plans that may affect the
scheduling or conduct of group training. Once the
Planning Board for Training has developed the
unit Quarterly Training Plan, department heads
add any additional broad departmental plans and
provide a copy to each training group within the
Figure 5-6.-Example of a Quarterly Employment Schedule.
