ASI: A3 Manpower and Force Structure (Enlisted)
The curriculum concentrates on manpower and force management functions within The Army's Operating and Generating Forces. The subject areas covered during instruction are tailored to the manpower and force management process described in AR 570-4 and AR 71-32. This process includes the integration of strategy, planning guidance, requirements determination, validation through the Total Army Analysis, resourcing, and documentation. In addition, the course provides a thorough familiarization of the mission and manpower oversight responsibilities of the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Manpower and Reserve Affairs (ASAM&RA) and its field operating activity, the U.S. Army Manpower Analysis Agency. The curriculum provides detailed instruction on the Five-Phased Approach, the primary Department of the Army-approved process used to identify manpower requirements in the Generating Force. Using the Five-Phased Approach, students validate an organizational mission and restructure a Table of Distribution and Allowances (TDA) that reflects enhanced organizational capability and improved business practices. The Manpower and Force Management Course introduces students to the skills required to analyze, validate, and standardize Generating Force structure. In addition, the student learns how to asses the relevance of Generating Force organizations to the Operating Force through the Total Army Analysis process. Course discussions underscore the dynamics of current force structure initiatives, both in the Operating and Generating Forces and their impact to Army Commands, Army Service Component Commands, and Direct Reporting Units.
The strategic focus of this course requires nominees be assigned to positions that require the use of manpower and force management skills. Officers, warrant officers, and civilians in the grades of GS-7 or above are eligible to attend on the basis of job title and assigned responsibilities.
NOTE: Only enlisted personnel in the grades of E-6 and above in positions codified with Additional Skill Identifier (ASI) A3 are eligible to attend the Manpower and Force Management Course. Soldiers in the grades of E-6 and E-7 must request authorization for enrollment from the course POC or they will be removed from the 'Reservation' or Wait' status in the Army Training Resource Requirements System (ATRRS).
