3) Any review of required and specific TDIs are not clearly identified in the presail checklist. In conversations with CW3 Johnson, 605th, the presail checklist does capture the TDIs required in its layout. Additionally, in a 2/6/18, telecom with CW3 Willis, HMOD Cdr, notes that the presail checklist does capture some but not all TDIs (see File II B-4-4, tracker 16.) ISSUE: I do not believe the checklist serves as an effective communication tool or document for higher command for the validation of TDIs. RESPONSE: CW3 Willis states that TDI are present in the checklist, but not all. Additionally, the TDI’s are IAW AR 56-9 table 2-1. (See File B-4-9-1, item 7.) e.

The LSV units are not using a published Annual Training schedule/plans but are using another training calendar media to track its training. Although the LSV units are entering training in DTMS, I have found that the LSVs units are not using the DTMS training plans/schedules. They are using a rolling 10-week training plan, which appears to function operationally for them but do not fully agree to the use of training schedules programmed in DTMS. Furthermore, I could not find how their 10-week plans are linked or reviewed by the 545 Company and/or the 8th STB. I have found the weekly calendar do capture several METL items but no TDIs. One unit is using a PowerPoint calendar as its primary tool to manage training requirements. As for the tracking of training tasks, one unit is using the Army Training Network (ATM) to manage and track his TDI and METL tasks. However, the other units are not using ATM. This absence of a consistent use of ATM is because the 545 Commander and 8th STB do not have a written policy in place to use the online training tracker. Lastly, I could not find a system or process in place where the vessel masters are tracking training completion in DTMS. (REF:…show more content…
Deficiencies found in the documentation of completed TDIs in Log Books. I conducted a review of a small sample of TDIs, my findings show that my sampling found deficiencies in the records between the TDI listing found in the front of the logbook and the recording in the daily log pages. I have cases where the TDI roster has items noted as completed but do not cross-referenced to the day of recording in the daily pages. I cannot validate that the TDI was completed or not. If the presail checklist is only using the front pages of the logbook to validate that all required presailing TDIs are completed and not actually cross-referencing to the specific entry in the daily pages, we may have a serious weaknesses in controls.
