                          Bridging the Gaps


• SSD is mandatory web-base training that continues throughout a Soldier’s career and is
  closely linked to and synchronized with institutional and experiential learning.
• SSD will bridge the operational and institutional domains and set conditions for continuous
  growth. When fully implemented, SSD will improve Army readiness by integrating self-
  development into a lifelong learning approach.
• SSD Program links self-development needs to NCO professional development efforts by
  ensuring that the self-development domain is well defined, meaningful, and
  synchronized/integrated into the leader development process.
• SSD is asynchronous and exists in four levels. It is supported by a robust self-assessment
  and feedback process, the increased use of advance technology like the Army Career
  Tracker (ACT), a secure test environment, achievable requirements, and policies that set
  the conditions for professional growth.
• SSD is a centrally managed set of specified content that must be completed within specified
  career points as a prerequisite for attendance at Warrior Leaders Course (WLC), Senior
  Leader Course (SLC), and Sergeants Major Course (SMC).

        Forcing Function for “Mop ups”

• Soldiers that have already completed (or enrolled) in a
  resident NCOES course prior to the mandatory prerequisite
  date will be “grandfathered” from prior levels of SSD

• Soldiers who missed an automatic enrollment date and are
  not grandfathered for a specific level of SSD need to either:
   – Self-enroll their requisite level of SSD, or
   – HRC needs to establish an automatic enrollment thru ATRRS to capture
     this group of Soldiers

• Required/completed levels of SSD is appropriately displayed on Soldier’s
  “My Career Dashboard”

• The most common issue users are having with SSD/ALMS is
  getting a “1009 error” and a “Blank Screen”
   – As of today we do not have a 100% fix for these; Soldiers
      can contact the helpdesk and are walked through the steps
      to resolve their issue
• Soldier taking SSD at night or in the morning (CONUS) have
  less issues than taking it during peak hours (1000-1400)

               (CAS) Background
In Nov 07, the CG TRADOC hosted a kick-off meeting with representatives
from 10 Universities/Colleges and representatives from the Service Members
Opportunity Colleges (SOC). This meeting established the foundations for
continuing to grow the training and educational partnership. The Army
implemented a Career NCO Degrees Program available to all NCOs at any
point in their career, with maximum credit for Army leadership schools based
on completion of NCOES up to the Sergeant Majors Course (SMC). To date,
28 universities/colleges offer business and management related degrees
under CAS.

               Enlisted Education Program
Vision:

   allow them to transition in another program

Thirty one colleges and universities combined will offer 56
degrees in either AA, AS, or AGS.

The program is now available for Soldiers on the GoArmyEd
website.


                                                                      25

                     SSD Background


• SSD is a result of the Review of Education Training and Assignments for Leaders
  (RETAL) study approved by the Secretary of the Army
• The final report concluded that self development lacked structure, had no clear
  focus and must be a robust component of the Professional Development Model
• Report recommendations included the development of a Structured component
  for the self development domain
• SSD was carried forward as a recommendation and became an approved Army
  Leader Development Program (ALDP) initiative supporting the NCO Life Long
  Learning Strategy
• INCOPD and USASMA developed content and started implementation of SSD
  Level 1 (SSD I) on in Oct 10 with full implementation planned for Jan 12
