Examples of topics normally addressed in the QTG and YTG are:
o Commander's assessment of mission essential task list proficiency.
o Combined arms and services training.
o A cross-reference of training events and associated METL training
o Leader development.
Short-range planning refines the long-range calendar. It defines
in greater detail the broad guidance on training events and other activities
in the long-range planning calendar and CTG.
It begins with the commander's training assessment and results in--
o Quarterly training guidance
(QTG) for AC and yearly training
guidance (YTG) for RC.
o Quarterly training calendar
(QTC) for AC and
calendar (YTC) for RC.
o Quarterly training briefing
(QTB) for AC and
briefing (YTB) for RC.
PART A - TRAINING ASSESSMENT
Short-range planning is based on the long-range unit assessment and on
a detailed training assessment of the unit's current METL proficiency. It
focuses on training deficiencies which impact on the unit's ability to
perform its wartime mission.
A training assessment is--
o Required for each METL task, platoon and squad collective task,
soldier task, and, at battalion and higher headquarters, each
o A snapshot of the unit's current soldier, leader, and collective
o A comparison of task proficiency with Army standards.
o Based on a review of training evaluations; for example, AT
evaluations, CTC take-home packages, and CTC lessons learned.
o Used to determine QTG or YTG.
