Also taken into consideration by MI WOTB during the analysis phase was the revision of AR 600-20, Army Command Policy, which formally designated warrant officers into three distinct grade and rank categories: company grade warrant officers W01 to CW2, field grade warrant officers CW3 to CW4, and senior field grade warrant officers CW5.
As such, the MI WOTB manages seven distinct WOBC tracks designed to certify MI warrant officers in one of seven MOSs.
MI WOAC consists of two sequential phases facilitated by the MI WOTB. Phase 1 is accomplished online through distributed learning, which students must complete within 90 days of attending Phase 2.
To address equipment shortfalls, the MI WOTB is projecting receipt of initial DCGS-A systems in August 2018.
Moreover, at no point during training provided by the MI WOTB did students interact with the very systems the operational force expects them to integrate.
The MI WOTB is already developing the POIs to integrate systems at relevant points throughout the MI WOBC and MI WOAC, faciliting digital intelligence architecture training and the MDMP DATE capstone.
Lastly, with the release of FM 3-0, Operations, all MI WOTB courses are placing an increased emphasis on executing the intelligence process in support of large-scale combat operations.
As the operational landscape shifts, WOTB
will continue the process of improving educational design to produce highly adaptive and technically proficient WOs.
