The Army assesses, plans, prepares, and executes training and leader development through training based on tasks, conditions, and standards. Knowing the task, assessing the level of proficiency against the standard and developing a sustained or improved training plan is the essence of all Army training.
Army training overall prepares Soldiers, leaders, and units to fight in the full spectrum of operations. Combat readiness is the Army’s primary focus as it transitions to a more agile, versatile, lethal, and survivable force. Physical readiness training prepares Soldiers and units for the physical challenges of fulfilling the mission in the face of a wide range of threats, in complex operational environments, and with emerging technologies.
