The Army Sustainment Command’s (ASC) Materiel Readiness Training Division (MRTD) offers valuable training on logistics tools, applications and programs in support of Army operations.

Previously, the primary tools MRTD taught were Logistics Data Analysis Center (LDAC)-centric. Since transitioning to ASC, MRTD has expanded the courses they provide to include any logistics readiness-enabling tool or application. 

MRTD’s mission is to bridge the gap between professional military education and unit-provided training. MRTD creates and delivers tailored unit-specific instruction based on the customer’s needs. Prior to COVID-19, MRTD provided over-the-shoulder support and face-to-face training, which included: instructor-led classroom and web-based training; video how-tos; job aides; and interactive multimedia instruction. Training was provided to Soldiers and DA civilians worldwide, both onsite (hosted at Redstone Arsenal, AL) and offsite via mobile training teams (MTTs).    

When the pandemic restricted travel, MRTD quickly adjusted to virtual web-based training, using platforms such as the Defense Collaboration Services, Microsoft Teams and Blackboard. 

MRTD develops new courses/programs as needed. Current courses include:
  • Decision Support Tool (DST)
  • DST- Unit Reset Planner (URP)
  • DST - Theater Provided Equipment (TPE)
  • DST - Defense Synchronization Module (DSM)
  • Defense Property Accountability System (DPAS)
  • Army Readiness Common Operating Picture (AR-COP)
  • Parts Tracker Modernization Course
  • Test, Measurement, and Diagnostic Equipment (TMDE)
  • Department of Defense Activity Address Code (DoDAAC)
