***NOTE: All information regarding ADT Training can be found at:

1. ELIGIBILITY: Employees with less than 3 years of Army Civilian service are not eligible to apply for ADT. Nominees must be serving in or registered in a Career Program with Career status appointments; Schedule A excepted appointments without time limitation; or Excepted appointments in the Defense Civilian Intelligence Personnel System (DCIPS). In addition, nominees must have a minimum of three (3) years service in any one or a combination of such appointments. Employees serving on an internship are not eligible to apply for an ADT until the internship is completed as well as meeting the previously stated criteria.

2. HOW TO APPLY: Below is the link on how to apply for an ADT (See CH4, Section I Academic Degree Training). Ensure that your request is assembled according to the ADT checklist and meets the criteria in the checklist. The checklist serves as a guide for completing and assembling the nomination package.

3. DEADLINES: The suspense dates for nominations for the FY 11-12 academic year for ADT packets is May 30 and November 30 annually.

NOTE: Packets will not be accepted after the suspense dates and must reach the HQDA, G-2 (DAMI-CP) office at least 150 days prior to the start date of the class (G3/5/7 requires at least 75 days processing time).

4. THE PROCESS: FYI, requests for funding of an ADT is not automatically approved because the use of ACTEDS funds is a competitive process. CP35 holds an internal ADT board twice a year for all ADT submissions. You will be notified of the status of your packet once the staffing process is completed. Staffing of ADT packets could be anywhere from 90 - 120 days. It is highly recommend that you explore the use of agency funding while your packet is being considered, reviewed and/or staffed. ADT's are subject to availability of funds.

5. ADT APPROVAL: ADT Packets submitted to the FCR for consideration in November will reflect a "school start date not earlier than April." Packets submitted in May will reflect a "school start date not earlier than October." If the packet does not meet this criteria it may be returned for correction or without action. If a packet has been approved, the applicant will receive an email from the FCR point of contact (Ms. Sharon Fowler). The email will acknowledge the approval and provide instructions on how to go into RASS to initiate the training application and request for funding. The applicant MUST enter RASS and complete the Form 182. *** Failure to do so will result in no funding!! ***

6. WHAT IS RASS: Resource Allocation Selection System (RASS)

The Resource Allocation Selection System (RASS) is an automated financial system that centrally manages the Army Civilian Training, Education and Development System (ACTEDS) resources for the Intern and Competitive Professional Development (CPD) training programs. RASS enables the creation, submission, and approval of the following forms: A Request, Authorization Agreement, Certification of Training and Reimbursement Form (SF 182) Request, and Authorization for TDY Travel Orders (DD Form 1610) Claim for Reimbursement for Expenditures on Official Business (SF1164). RASS can be accessed at the following website:

7. RASS HELP DESK: Help with technical problems (i.e., unable to login, locked out, etc.) contact the HQDA Civilian Human Resources System (CHRS) Help Desk at 1-888-253-1836.

  • AFTER the SF 182 is APPROVED, create the authorization in DTS.
      Reference the SF 182 training number on DTS authorization. Add non-mileage expenses only. Per Diem mileage expenses can be added to the authorization without booking the commercial travel.
  • Exit out of DTS WITHOUT SIGNING it.
  • The authorizations will route through DTS to G-37/TRV. G-37 TRV will automatically check for authorizations, based on the approved SF182, and add the LOA to the authorization within 7 days.
            On Day 8 Careerists should check DTS for the LOA.
  • Once the authorization has a LOA, Careerists are required to sign the completed authorization to conclude the process. Authorizations will route through the Careerist's normal DTS chain of command.
9. REMINDER: The applicant is responsible!
  • Applicant's should ensure there is sufficient lead time for the processing of training documents.
  • The applicant is responsible for accessing RASS and completing a SF 182. Documentation must contain the signatures of the supervisor, FCR and a G-1 Budget Analyst prior to beginning an ACTEDS training assignment.
  • Applicant's who attend a CPD training assignment prior to receiving a SF 182, certified with the signature of a G-1 budget Analyst and an ACTEDS fund cite signed and dated by a budget analyst in the G-1 RM office, may be responsible for costs associated with the training assignment.
