This facility is designated as a primary delivery point for individualized or small group based instruction. The ALC provides commanders the training and educational support resources necessary to help meet mission-related training and educational advancement. The ALC provides instruction, information, or advice on the use of ALC resources and maintains publications to support training in the assigned MOSs. In addition, a wide variety of study programs are available to include basic and advanced academic skills, AFCT (GT) improvement, college level examination programs review, preparation for college entrance exams, effective study skills programs, and others. The goal is to provide a “One-Stop Training Support Facility” for commanders and their soldiers. In addition, a full-time MOS Facilitator/Computer Monitor works directly with clients in identifying and accessing appropriate training materials, conducting training, and coordinating facilities for specific training needs.

The Army’s plan is to “Take Training to the Soldier!”. Technology is being used to maintain an edge in projecting, protecting, sustaining and employing combat readiness. The Army Distance Learning Program (ADLP) has revolutionized the use of technology for education and training. The Army Training Digital Library (ATDL) allows internet access to digitized publications (FMs, ARs, TMs, etc.) and Training Support Packages. Army modernization training consists of a wide variety of training initiatives to include Army Distance Learning, Train the Trainer, Internet, CD-ROM, Video teletraining, and interactive software. As equipment and training programs are identified and developed, the ALC will be used to facilitate and deliver this training support.
