USTRANSCOM / DTR Requirements
Defense Transportation Regulation (DTR). Page III-303-4 of the DTR is very clear that:
“g. Deploying unit will:
(1) Prepare passengers and cargo for airlift IAW procedures set forth in this Regulation, Part I, Chapter 103; Part II, Chapter 203, and Part III, Appendix H.
(2) Prepare and certify hazardous cargo and equipment.
(3) Prepare and certify aircraft load plans.
(4) Provide trained load teams to load, off-load, and secure cargo to aircraft.
(5) Furnish any required shoring, dunnage, and vehicle operators.
(6) Provide personnel and equipment to perform A/DACG functions as directed by their major command.
(7) Prepare and transmit personnel and cargo electronic manifests and forward to GTN IAW Table 302-2, Timeliness Evaluation Criteria
(8) Provide and operate MHE to load and unload aircraft when it is within the units’ capability.
(9) Request SAAM support through the Service validator. Provide means to create electronic manifest.
(10) Prepare cargo and equipment using designated automatic identification technology enablers.
(11) Figure 303-2 summarizes unit movement responsibilities. Specific responsibilities of participating organizations and agencies are discussed in detail in this chapter and Appendices. “
You should NOT confuse the “Deploying Unit” with the “Mobility Force” (TALCE, A/DACG, Aerial Port/Small Air Terminal, or DCC/CDF units). Deploying Units are responsible to Load Plan their chalks. Mobility Forces are responsible to Inspect cargo and validate Load Plans. Each ANG unit requires a qualified Load Planner.
Try to fill up the classroom as much as possible. Reach out to other service units in your area (e.g. HRF Elements, CERFP Elements, FSRTs, DRMKTs, C2-CREs, ARNG Aviation, etc.)
EPC Classroom Requirements
Classrooms for the EPC will have, as a minimum, adequate lighting controls (lights that dim works best), environmental controls, dry erase board, projector screen, and sufficient work space for each student (36” x 36”). Classrooms should have the ability to be secured when class is not in session. The classroom should be located outside the students work area to minimize interruptions from other unit personnel.
Units that host the training need to provide the following equipment for hands-on training:
a) For each five/six students have:
One piece of rolling stock (Hummer, Truck, Age equipment, etc.)
25’ tape measure
2” roll of painters tape (green “Frog” tape is best)
Permanent “chisel tip” marker (not a sharpie).
b) Three (3) 463L pallets with cargo/boxes
First pallet between 30″-35″ tall
Second pallet between 50″-60″ tall
Third pallet between 90″-96″ tall
c) Two (2) complete sets of 463L cargo nets (4 sides, 2 tops).
d) Eleven (11) 5,000 lb cargo straps.
e) A pair of portable scales for each piece rolling stock.
APC Classroom Requirements
Classrooms for the APC will be held in a computer lab so students will have access to ICODES Enterprise. For ARNG students will require coordination with the ANG/AF Communications Flight to gain access to the ANG/AF network. Ensure each computer is equipped with an external mouse. This classroom also requires an instructor computer, a projector screen and a dry erase board.
