Maj. Fernando Lavana, the 80th Total Army School System Training Center commandant, has said the TTC seeks to expand its load in the future with the creation of a new facility, the U.S. Army reported Tuesday.
Amy Phillips writes the center, which is scheduled for completion in 2016, facilitates 30 percent of Army engineering training.
“TTC [Fort Hunter Liggett] provides continual good weather, more open space to drive the vehicles and flexibility of training on the calendar for training [as compared to other TTCs],” Lavana said.
FHL conducts the Horizontal Construction Engineer Reclassification Course in two phases that consist of classroom instruction and hands-on training.
The first phase is focused on the operation and maintenance of a dump truck, a 2.5 cubic yard loader and a hydraulic excavator.
The second phase comprises lessons on how to operate the backhoe, motor grader, a wheeled scraper and D7R Dozer.
