The U.S. Army has launched an online training tool that works to give soldiers insight on the selection board’s process.
The service branch said Thursday the tool includes printable training aids and a 49-minute video that defines the Army Department selection board; shows the board’s processes and instructs soldiers on how to prepare for future boards.
The video also includes a mock board segment where soldiers are placed in the position of board members to grade and rate candidates, the Army added.
Tamika DeVeaux-Wallace, noncommissioned officer in charge at the DA Secretariat, said the tool references regulations and concepts to help soldiers build their careers.
Deveaux-Wallace added the video aims to dispel misconceptions that soldiers have on the selection board process.
The DA Secretariat developed the tool through a seven-month period at the human resources command.
