This report analyzes the Reserve Components school system's ability to meet training requirements for noncommissioned officers (NCOs) and for soldiers who are not duty-MOS qualified (DMOSQ), focusing on a "prototype" reorganized school system in its baseline and execution years (fiscal years 1994 and 1995) and comparing it to the system as a whole. In terms of training NCOs, requirements are large but decreasing and capacity is better able to meet demand; however, utilization of that capacity is inefficient and growing worse, leading to a slight decline in graduates. In terms of DMOSQ training, requirements are decreasing, capacity is increasing, and utilization is improved but still problematic, leading to an increase in graduates. The prototype compares favorably to the system as a whole in both of these areas. The report recommends increased management oversight and new policies to improve the utilization of training capacity throughout the school system. It also recommends the inclusion of new personnel management policies to reduce demands on the training system; e.g., by offering incentives to reduce voluntary job turnover and attrition among DMOSQ soldiers, as much of this turbulence is shown to be driven by personnel, not force structure.

This report summarizes the Arroyo Center's analysis of the Reserve Component (RC) school system and the prototype over two fiscal years (1995 and 1996) in the areas of training requirements and school production, training resources and costs, and training quality. While the RC system continues to have large training requirements, its ability to meet those requirements has grown; still, quota utilization continues to be a problem. Manpower resources continue to dominate costs, reinforcing the need to improve efficiency. Analysis shows that various strategies can improve efficiency from 10 to 24 percent; in addition, while consolidating annual training sites can yield efficiency, consolidating individual duty for training sites does not. Courseware continues to be the paramount training quality issue and, while instructor qualification is not a problem, finding enough qualified instructors continues to be.

Competition for scarce resources -- both dollars and soldiers -- has driven the Army to explore ways to reduce the costs and infrastructure needed to conduct military education and training. Resources devoted to military education and training are substantial; in FY00, the Active Component training institutions cost the Army $5.7 billion to run and absorbed 44,500 staff and 74,000 trainee man-years. The Army not only wants to reduce the resources it devotes to the training base, it also seeks to improve the performance of its schools. To achieve these goals, the Army has undertaken various initiatives to restructure and modernize its individual training system, including, for example, establishing the Total Army School System and The Army Distance Learning Program (TADLP). The task is a tough one: improve performance while reducing resources. The range of strategies the Army could pursue complicates the task. Which of them offer the best chance for success? RAND Arroyo Center has examined the Army's recent initiatives along with a number of others, and its analysis suggests that four strategies could help the Army achieve its goal: (1) Integrate Active (AC) and Reserve Component (RC) training institutions, (2) Expand the use of educational technologies in Army schools, (3) Leverage "flexible" distance learning technologies, and (4) Increase the use of the private sector in Army training.
