What is it?
U.S. Army’s training prepares the Army to compete, respond to crisis, win in conflict, and consolidate gains during largescale ground combat in a multi-domain environment.
Army training is highly focused and designed to deliver units that are well trained and confident in their abilities to fight and win anywhere, against any enemy.
What are the current and past efforts of the Army?
The U.S. Army delivered the new training doctrine publication, Field Manual (FM) 7-0, Training, on the Army’s 246th birthday, June 14, 2021. This doctrine:
- Outlines the foundational procedures used by Army leaders to train Soldiers and units.
- Simplifies training doctrine by re-introducing the Training Management Cycle as the core framework.
- Provides clear and concise principles of training, expanded “how to” details, and establishes the company training meeting as the center of gravity for unit training management.
- Guides leaders to effectively and efficiently develop tough realistic training with limited time and resources.
What continued efforts does the Army have planned?
The new FM 7-0 succinctly captures the Army’s training doctrine. The implementation of FM 7-0 is a critical step in building a Multi-Domain Operations capable and ready force for the future.
- FM 7-0 reinforces the inextricable link between training and leader development and the critical role of senior leaders / NCOs in training.
- Training will be highly focused and designed to deliver units that are well trained and confident in their abilities to fight and win anywhere, against any enemy.
Why is this important to the Army?
Training is the cornerstone of the Total Army’s ability to fight and win. Training develops cohesive, fit and disciplined teams and replicates how the Army expects to fight.
The operational environment has evolved, and the Army is reenergizing training efforts to be able to compete with, and if called upon, defeat near-peer adversaries through large-scale combat operations as part of the Joint Force.
