Abstract:

The Chief of Staff of the Army CSA directed in August 1977 that a Review of Education and Training of Officers RETO be conducted as a matter of importance. A massive data collection effort was undertaken shortly thereafter, including a description of every officer duty position, a comprehensive survey of officer opinions and attitudes, an extensive study of other systems other services, foreign armies, industry, and academia, numerous interviews, and, of course, a review of literature previously published on the subject. The RETO product constitutes a system encompassing total career education and training needs. It extends from precommissioning through career completion, covers both Active and Reserve Components, and is adaptable to force expansion. It is consistent with the Officer Personnel Management System OPMS, limits resource demands to those necessary to support bona fide requirements, and meets the challenges of the 1990s.
