LESSON DESCRIPTION: In this lesson you will learn the procedure to develop
a short-range plan.
You will learn the actions and techniques used to
enhance training strategies.
Finally, you will learn how to determine
resources needed to support the short-range plan.
TERMINAL LEARNING OBJECTIVE:
Describe the procedures to develop a short-range plan.
CONDITION: You are an officer or an NCO in a battalion level headquarters
unit and you are given a description of the short-range planning process as
outlined in FM 25-101.
STANDARD: Describe the procedure to develop a short-range plan in accordance
with FM 25-101, Battle Focused Training.
REFERENCES: The material contained in this lesson was derived from the
following publications: FM 25-100, Training The Force, and FM 25-101 Battle
Each level from division through battalion publishes short-range
training guidance that enables the commander and staff to prioritize and
refine mission essential training guidance contained in the long-range
Commanders must publish the short-range
training guidance with sufficient lead time to ensure subordinate units have
time to develop their own short-range training plans. Active Component (AC)
divisions provide quarterly training guidance (QTG), to subordinate commands
and installations at least 90 days prior to the start of each quarter.
After receiving guidance from higher headquarters, subordinate units down to
battalion sequentially publish their QTG.
The RC process is conceptually
the same as the AC process, but the guidance normally is published annually
as yearly training guidance (YTG).
