Abstract:

Although there have been major fundamental changes in response to new doctrine, increasingly sophisticated weapon systems, a changing world security environment, and the training doctrine of tactical units, there has not been a complementary evolution in the training base and Initial Entry Training IET. IET, its resources, environment and priority remains as it was in the early 1970s buried beneath the priority of units organized under a Table of Organization and Equipment TOE and viewed as not important to the system. This study examines the evolution of the basis of the dilemma, the discrimination of those assigned to the training base, analyzes the current TRADOC IET strategy, and proposes a new architecture for IET.
