Abstract:

The prevention of pollution and environmental degradation is vital to maintain effective and realistic training areas for Training and Doctrine Command TRADOC activities. This report analyzes the training needs of environmental professionals in the TRADOC work force, outlines a model training program to fill those needs, and evaluates the feasibility of creating such a program. Volume I of this report specifies 1 the body of environmental professionals to be trained, by background, experience, and responsibilities, 2 the training needs of the work force, and the categories of training to be accomplished under a broad training program, and 3 the conditions and operational constraints that will bear upon a successful environmental training program. Volume II lists available education sources. This conceptual outline is the basis for several recommendations 1 The program presented here should be refined into a final curriculum for individuals and installations. 2 Personnel retention incentives should be explored and developed, including the refinement of an Army environmental professional career path, and a formal system for receiving academic credit while accomplishing training. 3 This model program should be pursued in cooperation with other Army Major Commands and other Department of Defense services to achieve maximum cost effectiveness and economics of scale.
