Army Rolls Out Mobile Access to Training Network; Charlie Ostrand Comments

mobileThe U.S. Army has implemented mobile access to the service’s training network with a username and password in a move to transition from the common access card protocol.

Soldiers can sign up for a username and password through the defense manpower data center from the Army training network homepage, the Army said May 1.

Charlie Ostrand, technical branch chief for the Army training management system, said the training management directorate segregated confidential and official information for exclusive access to CAC card users as part of security rules.

“Some 93 percent of the information on ATN will be accessible with an Internet connection, username and password,” Ostrand added.

Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno led the access overhaul to ATN in an effort to expand access to training information.

ATN users have access to unit training management, NCO corner, arms training strategies, digital training management system and leader development tools.

The portal also provides links to resource videos for conducting training meetings, event rehearsals and reviews.
